    How different life could have been for me. For anyone, really. Like. What if I'd never left Kent? Or I'd taken my ex up on a date earlier? Or even if I'd done something little differently, like sent my friend a text before she died, or reached a little more to different people. Little things. Hindsight, eh?

    Good luck for tomorrow :hugs:

    I guess everyone thinks about things like that, but the past is the past. Thanks :hugs:

    Hey

    Write it all down. Best advice ever given to me. Deep breath, book the appointment, and just make sure you go. Then all you have to do is hand it over if you can't speak :hugs:
    That's a really good idea. Thank you...

    Is it likely I would get referred to someone else if I've been suffering from (what I personally think) are symptoms of unipolar depression for a few years now?

    There are numerous things they can do, one is they might ask you to come back in a week or two and track your symptoms to see how they go and then make a decision (Dont take this as a they dont give a **** like I did.) Or they can offer counselling, cbt and/or drugs depending on what they think you need.

    Thanks. I am slowly working up the courage to do it. Been thinking about it for a few weeks now whereas before I was set on trying to overcome it.

    If I explain how I feel here could someone perhaps shed some light on it, if they've felt the same? Really don't understand myself these days.

    I have really bad insomnia, I seem to get really anxious when I have to sleep because I find it difficult. But then often I'll crash during the day and sleep for hours.

    I have had self harm issues for a long time and lately I've been thinking quite a lot about ending it and not altogether sure why.

    I don't want to go out, I have really low self esteem so I just tend to stay in doors at weekends and this has been going on for a while, although sometimes it gets better. It's kinda like phases but then someone told me it can't happen in phases?

    My eating is messed up, I either binge like mad or just go for a good few weeks with eating the bare minimum and not having any interest in food.

    I have a really short fuse, I'm irritable and everyone around me keeps asking if I'm okay because apparently I look ''so sad all the time.''

    ...thoughts would be appreciated, thankies..

    Are you sure you're not me?!

    IF, I don't like sleeping tablets, they either don't work or they work too well. Plus I find that inevitably, I always leave it too late to take them. Oh, and there's a 6 week waiting list for a doctors appointment atm.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one.

    If you don't mind my asking, based on those feelings, have you been diagnosed with anything? :hugs:

    Depression. I'm currently querying whether that might be rapid cycling or some other form of bipolar depression though, and the fact that I've tried to kill myself twice has contributed to the diagnosis. (Basically, don't take that as what you have... uh, I'm not eloquent at this time of night, sorry)

    Yea, I know, thank you.

    If it has been going on over a long period of time is it possible that I could just suffer from it? And that it doesn't have to be triggered by anything?

    It honestly comes out of no where and then slowly fades. Then comes back. My mood can sometimes just drop from happiness though at the flick of a switch.

    The only person who can really answer if you have it or not is a doctor. However it is quite clear that you more than likely do have some kind of illness.

    I was in your case about going to the GP.. I put it off and put if off and by the time I managed to go it had got so bad I ran out of time before anything useful could be done and tried to end it. So I urge you to go as soon as you can.

    Do they sometimes give you an answer on the first appointment, such as ''it sounds like you may have depression'' etc?

    I very nearly attempted suicide a while ago, but have fought the urge since, so I can relate to that and it encourages me to do something about it before it gets out of hand again.
