Hi i am new to the site and thought i would give it a go as i don't go out anymore and would be nice to chat to people in simular situatin to me. I have suffered with depression for years,since i was about 18, had numerous counsilling sessions on a 1to1 basis and many different medication of anti depressents. i have recently changed my medication from setraline which i had been taking for a few years to mirtizapine 30mg as i was finding sleeping a great difficulty, the meds worked at first and it felt great to have a full nights sleep but now i seem to be falling back into the same trap of not sleeping then awake all night and the cycle continues on. I have recently moved to a complete new area with my now boyfriend and i thought the change of senery ect would be my ticked to a normal life but it has spirralled out of control. I now feel more alone than i ever had, i am no longer close to my family and have no friends only my boyfriend for suppoet, he works a lot of hours so i am more or less on my own most days. I would love to make new friends in the area but not having small children anymore it is more difficult as i don;t have th school runs etc what i used to have. I joined my local slimming world group as i am over weight too thinking it would benefit my weight but more importantly i would meet new friends in the area but my anxiety got the better of me and i only went 2 times. Because i have moved to a new district i have also registered with a new GP and i feel so uncomfortable seeing them as they don't know me or my past and i feel like thy think i,m talking utter crap! lol. thanks for reading xx
