Hi everyone, I'm not really sure how to start here, but i'd thought i'd give this a try. I haven't felt right for years, I obsessively worry about trivial things, I even worry when I have to talk to people, like talking to my boss at work, it can take me days or even weeks to approach them to talk about a situation. I've even lost sleep worry over things . I'm even worry now as I write this post about what replies i'll get to this.
I also think I have depression, although I don't know for sure, I just feel down all the time, I've lost enjoyment in things I used to love doing, and this has been going on for a few years now. I just don't know how to explain how I'm feeling. I tend to keep everything to myself, I don't really talk to anyone about it, it upsets me to talk about it, because I think no one will believe me.
I also suffer very badly with headaches and migraines, I don't know if this could be linked or not. When I was at university they said it was stress, but I still suffer badly with them now that I have left university.
I've read up on the symptoms of depression and anxiety, and some of them seem to match how i'm feeling, but I have never had an official diagnosis. I've always been quite melancholic, I just thought that was how I was. I recently finally drew up enough courage to book an appointment with my GP to discuss this, but now I'm worrying about what I should say or how to discuss this with them.
Can anyone help or advise.
