As titled, I have been suffering long term with these problems. Since I started working again- after being off for nearly a year, I felt like I had made some progress, considering I was barely going out and not making much contact with people, even family. I was struggling as a result, financially which made me feel even worse (if that was possible) and my long term relationship suffered as a result, as my gf wasn’t very supportive to say the least. Now it’s been 4/5 months since I started working again, once again I am started to feel like isolating myself away again. It’s important I have to add that I am not on any medication, since the Prozac was only effective for a few months and then feelings of darkness and major anxiety had creeped back in. I also tried Citropram with only bad side effects even weeks after which made me feel awful and even more isolated. I have previously had mental heath teams out to me as well as had appts with a therapist, which wasn’t a nice experience as she seemed to ‘poo poo’ my feelings and didn’t feel like she even took me serious! No wonder I felt even worse and felt like I had nowhere else to turn. My doctor who id been regularly seen, was not happy to say the least with this and yet still I wasn’t being referred anywhere considering my moods were so up and down- could feel low and like curling up one half of the day and yet still being isolated and nothing ‘happened’ to make me feel better I could feel crazy good or happy at the end of the day, I felt I had bipolar as this has been the case for years. Working hasn’t helped me, I work nights in a hotel so am v much still isolated and still feel like I have no hopes or optimism for the future and still get reoccurring dark thoughts.....sorry about the length of this but I finally need to ask you guys for advice and see what you suggest?!?
