This is Dr. David
it sounds like you could be having some depression symptoms.
I am sorry you are feeling low.
do you have a GP doctor you can see
and talk to about these low feelings
and see if an antidepressant could help you?
have you taken an antidepressant before?
No he's away on holiday every time I need to see the him!
it sounds like you need to find another GP doctor who will be more available to see you.
your GP doctor should also set you up to be seeing a therapist as well to talk about your low feelings.
here are support groups here
I find it difficult talking to people at the best of times, that's why I choose this in the end, no one seems to care, my family don't won't me living at home my boyfreind tryna help me but has a funny way of showing it I've lost a lot of friends because and I refused depression tablets because my mother was on them they made her very unwell and I try to keep in a positive frame of mind and tell my self I'm not down or need anyone I can cope on my own but that's not going very well at the moment :/
just because your mom didn't tolerate medication for depression does not mean you won't benefit from them.
we can help and chat online like this from time to time, but if your symptoms continue, you really do need to see a GP doctor
we can't give you prescription medication and can't refer you to see a therapist.
I understand that :)
do you have any other questions?
did you look at the website I gave you regarding finding support groups around you?
I have many I wouldn't know where to start really, I had an abortion at 17 which is now running my life, people talk about people and it's difficult to hold it together that's why I feel the way I do :) and yes I am looking through them now
you don't have to let an abortion at age 17 ruin your life.
let me know if you have questions.
It's all got to me so much I'm in a relationship with someone who had a child and it's difficult coz she is the same age as my child would be I've taken to her far to much, my mum uses it against me im a selfish girl for doing that, when I had no other choice I don't want a child at 17 I want a career. I've tried everything I can possibly do now, 4 years I've tried holding it in or doing something to keep my mind at rest but I don't want to talk to strange people about my life?
but you do have to talk to someone.
it is not selfish to not to want to have a child at age 17
you have to make the right decision for yourself.
I'm glad you did
that is not right for your mother to make you feel guilty for this tough decision that you had to make.
I'm glad that you have taken to your friends daughter.
that is very kind of you to treat her like your own daughter.
what is important is what you do to make the world a better place.
if you can do that, you are doing the right thing.
and don't let your family or anyone keep you from doing what you think is right for you.
Thankyou feel better already, will still try to talk to my gp though :)
