I have no idea what is wrong with me

For quite a while I keep having small attacks of crying continuously and hopelessness. I struggle day to day and just feel like im not attached to my self and feel detached from everything. I slur my speech and keep seeing things like a blur or shadow that are not there. I struggle to concentrate and have to strongly stop myself from not hurting myself. Its so hard to explain but I really dont know what to do anymore.

I am sorry you are going through a tough time at the moment charhar1.

It sounds very much like depression. I get those symptoms too and that is what I have been diagnosed with. Have you been to see your doctor for a diagnosis? If not please do go. Only a doctor can offer a proper diagnosis. A good way to proceed is to go into a website (sorry can't give you one personally) and take a depression test. There are quite a lot of them around. You will also find out much more about depression too and treatments available.

Don't be worried about going to a doctor - just pick one you think is nice and sympathetic. But any doctor should be able to diagnose depression. After all you would go if you had a broken leg wouldn't you? Depression (and anxiety) is very common nowadays and any doctor will have seen numerous people with it.

Let me know how you get on - stay strong.

I agree with Hypercat, the first step is your doctor. It certainly sounds like depression and hopefeully your doctor will be able to reassure you and advise on how to help you.

A lot of people on here feel like you do, me included so write on here anytime and someone is usually around, we all support each other with this.
