I am on antidepressants at the minute but they don’t seem to be doing anything.
I have been on them since mid January, and just a few days ago my dose has been increased for the second time.
I told my GP that it wasn’t working for me and she just gave me a higher dose for it and no other help.
It’s declining pretty fast, and my anxiety is soaring. I haven’t been out in a long time due to it, and I haven’t met up with anyone or spoken to any of my friends properly in a while. Seeing how nice it was outside today and seeing my friends being out and having fun made me feel awful, but I don’t know how to tackle this. I’m just so tired of feeling like this, I always dread summer because I know how much I’m missing out, and I know I can’t cover myself up when it’s hot out.

Sounds like you need to get into some virtual activities

Whether it be gaming, Snapchat, or some sort of virtual meet. Something that is always available.

If you ever want to talk please message me, I'm basically always available and wouldn't mind talking to someone myself
