This is my first time on this particular part of the Health Unlocked Forums.
I just want to introduce myself - Jackie.
I have suffered with depression for 19 years now & have been under Physciatric Care 3 times over the years.
I am beginning to worry as I feel myself going down. I know there is nothing my GP can do except refer me on to CPN's but they are over stretched & the waiting for an appointment is quite a while & I dont want to go down further & further to go back to Phyciatrist.
I am currently on 375mg of Venlafaxine but am worried that the effects of it making me feel better are wearing off & I know it is a very hard drug to come off & maybe try a new one.
I hope that maybe by chatting to people on here will maybe help me.
I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia earlier this year & have been told I have it because I suffer depresion.
I have a few issues going on in my life at the moment which could be causing me to feel like this?
I look forward to hopefully chatting to some of you & feel that I am not alone ir loosing it coz at the moment I am slowly loosing the will to live.
