Hi i'm a 21 year old female,
I have been feeling down and sad for the past 6 months now. I've put on lots of weight as i've been relying on comfort food. I'm crying over silly things and can't remember the last time I haven't been absolutely exhausted. It takes me hours to get to sleep at night and when I finally do its restless. I use to be happy carefree and bubbly and now im sad. anxious and im getting tired of putting on a happy face for friends and family. I've tried exercising and i've tried the CBT audio files on the nhs website and they're not working.
I'm worried that if I go to my doctor they'll just say to eat more healthy and exercise. With me knowing that that's not going to work.
