Our expert says:
Depression is a common problem among people of all ages, and it sounds as if you well may be depressed. Why not seek help ? You surely deserve it. If possible see a psychiatrist, but a good GP could also be helpful. Antidepressant meds can be very helpful ( though sometimes you need to try a couple to find the one that suits your chemistry best ) and also highly effective and helpful is CBT, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, a specific form of psychotherapy that helps you to change your way of thinking in a helpful way. The Anxiety/Depression Suppoert Group ( number on this page ) can help you find a shrink near you who provides this excellent method of help.
Things are likely to start to look up within weeks of starting, especially if both methods are used, and within a month or two you should be feeling substantially better. DO , if you wish, keep contact on the forum, and let us know of your progress.
