Hi, I'm new to his site, I've been looking for someway to get help with depression rather than taking pills. I have gone through some bad things over the last few years, this has left me in a bar way. Firstly my partner of 10 years beat me up and stabbed me, following this I lost my dog (I know this seems triviall to some but he was my saviour), I adopted another dog only to be told that my mum had got cancer, she only lasted 3 months from been told, I am the eldest girl so I was expected to be strong for everyone so unable to dry or discuss with anyone, I have no partner and not very good on telling how I feel, this was last year, my mum died on June 9th, in August I woke up and was in so much pain in my leg I could hardly walk, I have been suffering this and still am, I just want to sit and cry all the time. I don't want to do anything, this is affecting my work as I can't get back into it. I need someone who wants to listen and cares enough to say I know you are trying but you need help. I just need someone somewhere to help me.
