Please make arrangements to see at the very least a GP, but preferably a specialist Psychiatrist, whether privately, especially if you have medical aid, or at a major state hospital or clinic or medial school, for a proper and thorough assessment and a discussion of treatment op[tions, which should include counselling as well as antidepressant meds
