Hi everyone, I have been feeling quite depressed lately. Personally I don't think it's anything to do with my quit as its been on and off since early this year - before I even decided to quit. I've had some good days in between, but on the whole I'm pretty depressed and I haven't yet spoken to anyone about it, although I did mention it briefly to my hubby this weekend.
I think I may see my gp when I get time as I'm quite worried now as a few days ago I started thinking that I don't really want to be here. Before anyone panics - I'm not suicidal as I wouldn't do that to my family - I think it's so selfish. I'm just really sad and I don't know how to fix it. I don't want to tell my family or friends as I feel weak and I don't want sympathy from them and I don't want them to worry about me as that will make me feel worse. All I feel like doing is curling up in a ball and crying, but when you have kids that's not always possible.
Has anyone else been through something similar? Any advice? Sorry to burden you on here but I just don't know what to do. Also it's hard to figure out whether this is related to my quit (I'm 10 weeks in). I just want to be myself again - I'm normally a really cheerful, positive person.
Thanks for reading this.
