stressed out with life and mental health is suffering Watch

    For the last 3 weeks I've been really unwell and agitated by everybody and stressed. I attribute this to my depression and anxiety, and the fact I have not been taking my medication for about a fortnight.

    I didn't stop taking it out of preference, but because I ran out and I always feel anxious going back to doctors for the prescription. I have attempted to order online via my pharmacy but its taking its time.

    I've been in a constant state of agitation, and depression throughout the festive period, with occasional bouts of rage and anger showing toward loved ones.
    Financial stress, job stress, worrying about ill mother, arguments with fiancee, and been unable to escape it.

    The reason this isn't in the mental health forum is because actually, my problems stem from work-related stress (that has spiralled), although depression predates my current work.

    For ten months I've worked my current job out of necessity to pay bills. I've been bullied in my workplace by managers- that is toxic from the top-down.

    I've emailed HR- and she said she can't help me unless I email my direct manager (whom I don't feel comfortable approaching as she is a part of the issue), or I can go to some other manager whom is arrogant. So I felt at a loss.

    Fast forward to yesterday, I now have a new boss due to company restructure, whom is stricter but is kicking people into toe. It is good for me and my health perhaps, but the stress of having a new boss and uncertainty is weighing on my mind.

    I'm having arguments with my partner, whom is always moaning at me for doing things wrong, for not doing things in her way. Little frustrations are turning big- probably because Im not medicated.

    Top it off, I've been applying for graduate work for months and not getting anywhere.

    I'm getting more and more ill, and I was supposed to go for a review to my GP of my medication. Which I forgot to book appt, and since I stopped taking I felt it was useless. I'm in counselling and that aint helping either.

    I'm feeling very very low right now.

    You need to accept that one way or another the first step in tackling this is making an appointment to see your GP and initially getting another prescription to stabilise yourself. Make sure you explain everything/be as open as possible about everything when you see your GP.
