Well I'm Finally Getting Help...

Postby skyflyz » Thu Apr 04, 2019 5:44 am

But the circumstances are well, pretty horrific. Basically my inability to force myself to do my job has landed my boss in hot water and the business will probably be gone soon. He's an asshat but it's still going to be horrible.

Been under incredible stress of course. Have an appt to go see my dr. for depression because at this point I feel like I have no choice. Have considered some extreme options but won't be doing that.

Moral of the story is not to let this happen to you kiddies..

If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”

I'm thinking of you too- sorry things are so difficult.

Please keep away from those extreme options. That first step of asking for help is one of the hardest. There'll still be more steps that are tough to make, and it may not really feel like it, but each one you manage to achieve gives you a tiny bit more confidence in your abilities. There's nothing wrong with taking baby steps either.

Let us know how you go with the doctor.

Sending hugs.

Thanks folks for the well wishes, I went to my doctor and he's a nice man but not really able to cope with depression type stuff so I talked to his assistant who did the depression questionnaire. I also told them I suffer from a constant chronic type anxiety. One of the sheets they hand out with diagnoses said major depressive disorder. They prescribed 50 mg Zoloft and melatonin for sleep problems. This is a small town doctor and office. I probably should go to the larger city nearby for these services but it's 80 miles and hard for me to get the time to make those trips. They also suggested a therapist. I asked the assistant if she really knew any good ones in this town and she gave me the name of a lady she says her friend use and like. So that's where we stand. They also wanted me to do the yearly checkup so we'll see where I stand there.
