This is really hard to say. But I've been diagnosed with the D word, depression! I'm 26 and get so annoyed at my self for not copeing.
I've had a bad couple of months suffering quietly to the point where I couldn't get in the shower, I got upset if I had to leave the house, wasn't sleeping and putting on an act any time I was around family or friends or in public.
But one day at the hospital for an appointment I couldn't do it anymore and just broke down. I explained everything that I was feeling, and she suggested to go straight to the doctors to be put on a low anti depressant. A few days went by and I still hadn't been to the doctors, I was terrified. I started opening up to family and my boyfriend and realised that I was still loved. So I plucked up all my courage and went to the doctors. Broke down again at the doctors.
My medication or "crazy pills" (boyfriend calls them) are working well. I take one at 9.00 at night and have a very calm sleep. My only issue is I still feel it bubbling during the day. I don't think I've still not come to terms with it all yet I'm just glad I'm sleeping!
Pluck up all your courage and do it!
