Life's battles

Hi, this is the first time I've posted something so intimate on the Internet, but I'm finding I have no other ideas to help. I've been suffering from anxiety and depression most of my life battling self harm for many years and over coming it. About 2 years ago something happened that I don't want to mention but as a resort diagnosed with PTSD. About 6 months ago I hit rock bottom, self harm, suicide attempts, anti depressants, counciling and still now can't get out of this hole, I get anxious about anti depressents so that makes me feel sick so I can't take them? I don't want to go back to Councilling because I've been doing I for so long and isn't helping? I have no idea what else to do I feel like I'm living in someone else's mind that I can't control and I can't get out of this mental state that I'm in. Has anyone got any advice or medications that helped you I would really appriacate it

If counselling hasn't helped over the years then medication is possibly worth considering.

Funny thing is, I've been talking to another lady for over two months who also had a fear of antidepressants but who has managed to finally overcome that fear, and now takes one daily.

The change she has undergone has been a delight to witness & she's finally got her life back.

But it's a personal choice which only you can make.
