Our expert says:
Well, whatever one calls it, it must be unpleasant and distressing. What is missing from your message ( maybe you're saving it for the novel ? ) is any reference to actual expert advice and treatment. I would hope that you have already seen ( and if this has been unsuccessful, seek a second opinion ) a good local psychiatrist, for a full assesment and a discussion of treatment options. Chronic or complex problems of this sort are beyond the capacity of a GP.
After a good diagnosis, to clarify what is not working properly, and an exploration of what ways are available to effectively help it, there should be no reason for you to remain this way in the long-term. But be assertive in getting the best available advice and assistance
