Our expert says:
mads - you can and should stay around ; be more assertive about getting the best treatment you can find from a good local psychiatrist ( maybe reached through your local hospital casualty ) ; persist with treatment as this can be lifted and life can be so much better again. And use other resources meantime - call Lifeline and check out the SADAG / Depression & Anxiety support Group numbers on this page.
I know that at times things look especially bleak ; Depression is a specially sneaky and cruel illness, because it often takes away your ability to be hopeful just when you most need it, and it distorts your view of the world, magnifying everything negative and urging you to ignore everything positive. Stick in there - you're worth it !
