I have just joined this forum. I was diagnosed a6 months ago, but now know I was suffering from depression for 6 months before that. I managed to work until April, when I was admitted to hospital. I was working in the afternoon and an hour later was admitted. I spent 9 weeks in hospital, and am still off work. Now into my 5 th month offs. My work doesn't understand. They keep askin me when I will be back. I don't know the answer to that. They laughed at me when I said I had depression. Told me everyone felt like that on a Monday morning. Since then I have got worse again. Self harming much more, withdrawing from friends, not sleeping. I have planned suicide. But obviously I haven't done it yet. I was told to give my nurse all extra meds but I hid some and kept them. My nurse is coming to see me every day. I know I couldn't work just now, but I feel I should be trying and I must be really weak and a failure that I can't. I don't know what to do. I have the nurse win contact with me every day. I am seeing a psychologist every week and seeing my psychiatrist in a week again. I just don't know how much more I can take. Everything spins round in my head. I don't think the medics realise even though I have tried to explain. I have never cut myself until last week. In the last 5 nights I have had 10 hours sleep but haven't slept for 2. Nights. Not slept at all. Any tips would be good
