Personality change

Post 2010 and a accident I had, I was a person who all my life worked hard and played hard. Now I am a person who doesn't want to work or play at all. I try all the time to get back to how I was but to no avail, I really miss my "real self" . I have tried various anti depressants but didn't get on with them. I have diazapam here and there for when I get really down to get me away from the really morbid thoughts I have. All I want to do is go to work and can't no matter what I do and I've tried loads, like CBT, voluntary work (made me very ill). I wish I knew what is wrong with me.

  • Sorry to hear this , I have Been where you are now , I am on meds for anxiety and depression , I am not the same person I was 4 yrs ago , but that's due to the loss of my dad . I don't work because of my health issues .do you take any meds for depression ? Sounds to me like you are depressed even though you don't realise it . Go talk to your doctor again . I have had CBT twice now and it did help me in a way , I'm not there fully yet but I hope 2017 brings in a better year . Good luck ! Best wishes. Linda
