Hi, i am a male of 27 years suffering with moderate depression and anxiety since i was a small child. Basically all of my remembered life, No one knew, or suspected anything as my family allowed me to 'fall back' and pick myself up in my own time without questioning why. About a year ago i went down the route of doctors and to cut a long story short the conversation went aslong the lines of this 'i really need to see someone asap as i now cannot cope and i am suicidal but just not brave enough yet'...........'ok well we can see you in three months?'
This is already after being discharged from their service after 1 appointment no show. No call or letter.
WTF??? And the appointments i did have were me just telling him how i felt and then he wrote it down and said see you in three months. Yea, if im alive.
Well now i really am brave enough. My stresses have overwhelmed me and now im not scared. Recently there has been a big thing where the government want men to come forward with their mental health issues. Well it would help if anyone listened.
I now cant work, i dont want to leave the house, i dont want to keep asking for help over and over again. infact i wont. Ive lost my battle and ive made my decision. Ive asked for help and disclosed my suicidal urges but all i get is see you in three months. I dont expect anyone to listen or care as no one has yet and im not asking for it. If nothing else this post will show the world after im gone that the problem isnt men being proud, its the NHS not giving a rats.
Good luck to all sufferers out there
over and out
