Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
This sounds like schizophrenia
It is characterized by withdrawal, flat mood and hallucinations
Have you been evaluated for this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No as yet i should be seeing a psychiatrist tuesday but so far its like everyone is trying to fob me off as depression

depression is a part of schizophrenia sometimes but I believe you more so fit the bill for full blown paranoid schizophrenia
you need to see a doctor ASAP for this.
there are medicines that can help

Is not having any emotion at all & not even being able to touch my daughter in fear of hurting her also part of this & will i be able to return to my job im currently signed off

yes absolutely
flat affect is what that lack of mood is
you might be able to return depending on how effective the meds are for you

Will the psychiatrist be able to properly diagnose me then instead of just being told psychosis & depression even when i have said to crisis team i dont know how much longer i can block them out for as they are getting more frequent & louder

yes, they will be able to
