Our expert says:
It seems your concerns and struggles have been long and tiring to cope with.You have taken the right action in putting medical treatment in place and it is wise to consider the advice of your GP regarding the increased dose of medication. A suggestion to consider is to keep your involvement with people and to have less times of isolation that feeds the depression . One wants to start to feed and improve the management of the depression and anxiety. As you have been to many therapists , there may be things that you remember of those sessions that could be useful now. I would also recommend councelling again at this stage ( eg. familly life centre , South AFrican Deppression Group etc.) to identify automatic negative thoughts that have perhaps become the very sustainance for depression and anxiety to thrive.The above centres could perhaps accommodate you finacially.
Remind yourself that as you take one step forward no matter how small, that it has made a difference toward your health. Continue the steps forward.
