Hi everybody, i thought i would introduce myself to everyone. This is my first time in joining a group of this nature. I have suffered depression for as long as i can remember, i am now 42! I am really struggling this week as i didn't put my prescription in for my medication..so have now been without for a week. My emotions have come to a head and have forced myself to get my repeat prescription! Hopefully it will be at the chemist tomorrow. I honestly don't know why i let this happen as this is not the first time. The first couple of days are ok then i become so tired that doing anything is difficult, i become irritable snappy sad tearful and over emotional. I am having to accept that i need medication to function as a half normal person!! Can anyone relate to anything i have said??
