Good morning everyone and I hope you're doing well. I've just joined the group and also replied to a discussion. Do take a look if you have a moment.
I'm Nick, a 36 year old father of two wonderul girls - Elsie is just 3 and Orla is 14 months. I'm married to Emily, my patient and supportive wife!
I have had a lot of problems with major depression since my late teens and in more recent years severe anxiety. This manifests particularly in health anxiety which at times completely takes over my life. I feel huge guilt about this and what it does to my family.
I am again making a concerted effort to better manage my health and am soon to start CBT through an NHS referral. I have also started Sertraline 3 weeks ago (which I think I am having problems with). I have previous experience of using Citalopram, Escitalopram, Mirtazapine and Diazapam.
All the best
