This is my first post as a new thread and I feel like I really need a friend.
I have had an ongoing health problem for few months now and this along with various other troubles has sent me a little bit over the edge.
Health problem seems mild to others and to family members but has had a major impact on me.
To the point where I have really lost my way and am now in the midst of a depression that has overwhelmed me.
I have visited the GP more times that I care to mention and have become obsessed with every little thing.
I have googled until I am at the end of my tether and have finally started on medication today. I delayed this while I googled all the side effects of the medication until I nearly went mad!
As you can probably tell I am an anxious person but I so want to get this under control.
My family tell me that I am wasting the final years of my life due to all of this and not enjoying anything. They are right, I cannot enjoy a thing and can’t concentrate on any past time.
My grandchildren are my joy but I feel like I am making their lives a misery as well.
Various other things happening which are adding to it all. Husbands health, family issue with son etc etc.
waiting to see a counsellor but I know that there will be a long wait for that.
Has anyone else ever felt like this?
Many thanks if anyone reads post.
