Hi I'm Danny from Leeds!
so this was a big step for me last week I finally went to the doctors after breaking down twice in a few days! I have a habit of bottling things up and trying to act strong in front of people and I have been doing it for the past 3 years. About 8 months ago I ended up having a break down and was rushed into hospital they promised me I would get help and people to talk to! How ever once I was discharged no one ever got in contact with me again, so I carried on bottling my feelings up to a point last week I ended up breaking down twice in the space of a few days.
so after being dragged to the doctors by a friend worried about me I ended up speaking to someone about everything for the first time it was really hard just broke down in tears so after all this the doctors have ended up putting me on fluoxetine.
my main problem is trying to put and finger on what has started this all off to try and cure it but I can't seem to work it out! I'm working full time and I like my job also in my spare time I like to keep busy and keep my mind of things but as soon as I get home with no one around it just gets worse.
I'm also struggling to sleep on a night I'm lucky if I get 4 hours sleep each night which is really not helping me as I just feel drained every day.
I'm just looking for advice on what I can do to try and improve my life?
