Hi This is the first time I have written on anything like this but am feeling pretty low at the moment. I have suffered from depression, anxiety on and off for a number of years, have tried most antidepressants, at the moment on Mirtazapine 15mg. I have a fear of dentists but plucked up courage to go the dentist this for check up and was told the next day that I will need a 1 hour appointment for treatment, after being told this over the phone anxiety took over and my insides were in knots and felt so really panicked, then depression took over and I haven't been out of the house since, I live alone and feel I am alone in the world although I have family I could turn to but don't, so I stay in alone feeling what is the point of getting up every day just to be on my own at home, I don't go out I don't speak to anyone because I feel so down. I also have been diagnosed with diverticular disease and I get stomach pain almost every day with urgency in finding a toilet, which is just another obstacle in me going out. I am 64, divorced after 33 years, and my recent relationship has just finished after 15 years - mainly due to my health issues. All in all I am feeling really low and cant see things getting any better.
