I have been feeling low for a very long period of time now. I suffered with severe depression and anxiety several years ago when I was a teenager, tried CBT and talking therapies and eventually I guess grew out of it. In Dec 2015 I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and I find management of my condition exhausting and draining. I've felt feelings of depression since diagnosis but they are getting worse and preventing me from concentrating on work and my studies. I feel my best option is mild antidepressants and I know that therapy won't work. However, I don't want to talk about my feelings too much in order to get this medication. Could I just ask my GP to prescribe them or do I need to go through a longer process?
