    This is normal when you first start antidepressants. Hang on in there it should hopefully wear off soon.
    In all honesty, I don't think my left hand should feel numb though.

    They should do, especially if you say you're in crisis as TLG said- she put it a lot better than me (as usual ). Only just seen your PM sorry- replied now

    Hmm, that is odd. I'd give it a while to see if it resolves itself, if not it might be worth going back to the doctor.

    I'd not get an appointment until the end of the month, sadly, and the receptionists at my GPs don't believe that anything related to depression except s/h is considered as an emergency.

    That sucks. Could you make an appointment now and cancel if, closer to the time, the side effects are gone?

    Hey, it's ok! I would rather you'd focus on yourself and get 'better' (I need a more accurate word there, whoops) than check up on me.

    I feel emotionally weird tonight, just generally not right at all

    All because of the moron of the internet pretending to have replies from the manager at my docs surgery making out they are actually bothered, and want to support me all through everything as much as I need

    Feel like people are just doing stuff out of pity and to keep me happy

    Stuck with my GP with a letter from a bloke i don't know, its a mess. Feel an idiot getting drawn into it

    I need to be honest with my GP so I can try and grt some support because i feel emotionally more fragile. I was only speaking to this stranger because he genuinley seemed to care and its gone pear shaped

    I don't know how to be honest with GP and say look I need your support because social anxiety means theres no one else who can help me and listen to me, and support me through therapy when it starts and that means i go on the internet and get roped in by strangers like the stupid idiot I always am

    Can't trust anyone. Or my social anxiety means i put too much trust in people and it gets abused.

    I am an idiot.

    I tried to make an appointment today so I could get my medical notes for my school and exam board, and they told me I had to come back next week to make an appointment as they're all booked up until the 17th April at least. It's all cause over 70 people missed appointments in March at the practice and it's the biggest in the city.

    Haha, you're right

    But how do i tell him he has a letter from someone i don't actually know in person ? He asked me if i knew the guy and I said yes. Because i felt too ashamed to admit my lack of friends means i seek support off people i don't know - would that sound daft ?

    Finally seeing spring arriving! 23C today.

    S/h
    I've been wearing a short sleeved shirt today and yesterday and haven't, as far as I can tell, had anyone staring at my arms or commenting to their friends about me. Got a huge confidence boost when I bought a sandwich for lunch and the guy serving me had a lot of scars up both arms. It's great that he's got a job interacting with the public (not meant condescendingly) and his employer hasn't discriminated against him. Gives me hope that I can find a job too.

    Thank you

    Do you think it would mean they will stop supporting me, or just support more ?

    That was all me today during school too, and now I've started my antidepressants and one dose has already made me feel nauseous. But you can do it and it will get better, I promise. :jumphug:

    Maybe you need to take a step back from everything and take a few days instead of working yourself up into a big state.
