    I've been using St John's Wort since August last year, but I don't really think they work to be honest, at least not for me. Could it maybe be the brand (I get them from Holland and Barrett)? Cos to be fair, I've been using a lot of different vitamins and supplements from H&B, and I'm not sure if they work really well. If anyone could recommend me something better, that would be cool thanks. I wouldn't mind too much splurging a bit of cash just to feel better and help with this depression. Otherwise I might go to my doctor for antidepressants, that's if they let me :unsure:.

    Ah, at least days are getting sunnier now, hopefully that lightens us all up a bit . I have only one week (more like 4 days due to Good Friday) of school left, just need to finish my Media and English coursework by then though .

    I am so overwhelmed by sadness. I feel empty and numb and I can't take this anymore. I was listening to 'Don't Let Me Get Me' by Pink and one part of the lyrics summed my life up perfectly:

    'Doctor, doctor, won't you please prescribe me something?A day in the life of someone else.'

    :hugs: Are you seeing anyone about it?

    I guess my streak of 'okay' days has run out. I'm feeling so apathetic right now it's ridiculous. I have until Wednesday to do my coursework, get 1/2/3 drafts of another done and... I just don't seem to give a damn.

    I hate the fact that I don't see this one guy for ages and then I see him tonight - he is, ofc, wasted - and he brings me right back down.

    The sodding cut on my arm won't stop bleeding :cry: I hate that I can't control myself!

    Not good I lost out on a flat I really wanted because no one in my family would be a guarantor for me, so it seems I now have to go into a hostel :cry:

    :hugs: that sucks. Are there no other options you could take? I don't know what your situation is but perhaps rent a room in a flat with someone else until you find another flat or stay with a friend, something like that?

    After a few days of feeling okay (apart from having weird panic attacks when I go somewhere that isn't 'everyday'), I'm back to feeling beyond apathetic and low. I'm seeing my doctor on Wednesday, who seemed to think that I might be depressed last time I saw him (I see my GP every 2 weeks ATM, fun). But the assessment people think that it may 'just be because I'm 18' etc. I didn't know when they said that, but now I think they're totally wrong. But hey, like I'm going to open up to them and be honest with them about what's going on.

    So fed up.

    How long you been feeling like this? First time I saw a doctor I was a couple of months off 19 and she told me it was "teenage hormones". What total crap. :rolleyes: Anyway, point is get another opinion because from what you've wrote on here doesn't seem like regular teenage stuff to me (then again I'm not a doctor :p: ) and doctors can be wrong. You do need to be honest with them though, if you play stuff down or leave stuff out then yeah they probably can't help as much.

    Hmm. Well I think that my GP thinks that something's up. I'm probably more open with him because he's been my GP since I was 3. But the assessment guy let me walk out last time after deciding to do nothing (it was up to me), but I regretted it and got someone from my school to phone up and now have an appointment. They still think it's just because of my age though. For once I think that there is something wrong with me, so...

    I was really hoping that he was right, that it was just hormones/stress/whatever and that it would go away but I feel just as low as I did when I went to see the doctor, only certain urges are stronger now.

    I first started feeling like this in about July, when I was on the Pill (a noted side effect), I came off it and was fine until about Sep-Oct, when teachers starting thinking something was up and then this February everything nose-dived. January was pretty tough in terms of mental health, but that was my ED.

    I know I need to be honest, but my mind says one thing and something else comes out of my mouth.

    EDIT: wow, sorry for the essay.

    Well if you've got another appointment with these assessment people then try to be more open with them this time, I know it's pretty hard to be open with people you don't know about stuff like this but if you're not they're limited in how they can help you. If your GP thinks there's something wrong surely he'd tell his thoughts to these assessment people?

    Regarding the thinking one thing, saying another, could you write down everything so when you go to these assessment people you have a list of everything and it would probably be a lot easier for you to tell them than just trying to remember stuff. Just an idea.

    I kind of know what you mean about just wishing it was hormones/stress - they go away on their own, depression often doesn't.

    ergh coursework, good luck with that. Have some myself to do.

    Does anyone sometimes feel like they're making everything up? Like I dunno as an excuse for laziness. I can't get this idea out my head recently, it's why none of the anti-depressants I've taken have worked at all, because I'm not depressed I'm just a lazy loser looking for something to blame all my problems on. My inability to concentrate at uni is simply my brain looking for an excuse to not do the work.

    I first got this idea from the mental health woman at university, I was talking to her and she said perhaps the reason I can't do the work is because subconsciously I don't want to. I was bullied so much when I was a kid, a lot of it due to me being really good in school, so she was saying perhaps subconsciously I don't want to do well so that I don't get bullied again and I don't stand out. I thought it was total bull**** when she said it but now the thoughts won't go away. If I am making this all up what's it going to take to get out of it? I'm about to fail my uni exams, then I'll have no where to live, no job, nothing, where will my subconscious stop?

    argh ****, wrote loads of rubbish. Sorry.
