I had a brief flare-up of depression for a few days last year but I’ve had a lot of good support and support through therapy
I’ve been diagnosed with a severe mood disorder and anxiety.
I’m an independent contractor, and I’ve worked in various industries for over five years.
The symptoms have been going on for almost two years, and now I’m at the point where I have to seek help for my depression.
I have an issue with how I think about my mental health and how I feel about the way I treat it.
I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for quite some time.
The first time I was diagnosed with this condition, I was at the height of my depression, and for some reason I thought that was my destiny.
I’ve been dealing with depression for two years and I’m still getting to grips with how to manage it.
There’s a lot I still need to work on.
I know I’m not the only one who has struggled with this.
The other side of this is that I’m often confused about how I should approach it.
In my head, it’s just not a big deal.
However, I’ve also found that there’s a different type of depression where the symptoms are a bit different and the person isn’t getting the support they need.
So, when I got diagnosed with depression in 2016, I had two things in my mind: I knew I was going to be a great worker, and the mood disorder was going away.
I was optimistic about my future.
I had everything going for me, but there was one small thing that I didn’t have an answer for.
I was living in an apartment in Glasgow.
I worked as a software engineer and my salary was around £60,000.
I used to work as a freelance developer, and was very happy there.
I enjoyed my job and I loved my family.
But when my health issues became more severe, my relationship with my partner soured, and my mental state became increasingly worrying.
I began to realise that there was a huge difference between being happy and feeling miserable.
I didn’t realise that I wasn’t happy, and that my depression was making me feel like that.
So, I tried to cope by going to therapy and trying to live my life as normal as possible.
I got into a lot more of the things that I used the most.
I started to eat a lot less and my friends became more interested in me.
I felt good about myself and I was starting to feel like I was a part of society.
But then, my partner became very worried about me, and started to talk to me about it.
They’d see me with my dog and they’d say, ‘How can you go out for drinks every night?
You can’t live like this.’
My friend who I’d met through a mutual friend told me that he’d been in therapy with a psychologist, and he said, ‘If you can’t cope with this, you’ve got to go into therapy with someone’.
I was very angry with myself for not being able to cope.
I said, “I’m not going to go through that again.”
I just wanted to get through it, so I decided that I’d go back to the counsellor and get a referral to see a therapist.
I got a referral from the therapist, and she said, I can’t go into a therapist’s office without a referral.
I thought, ‘I’ve just been diagnosed, so what’s the point of going to a therapist if they don’t have a referral?’
So, I went to the referral centre, and there were two therapists working on my case.
I took a few sessions with them, and one of them referred me to a psychiatrist.
The psychiatrist took a look at me and said, you’re a very vulnerable individual and you need to talk with a therapist about this.
I did the session and I felt better, but I couldn’t go back into therapy.
I went back to my GP, who recommended that I see a psychiatrist who is more experienced.
I didn, and they sent me back to see the therapist.
I called her a few times to get a diagnosis, but they didn’t give me a diagnosis.
It was the first time they’d had to refer me to someone.
I tried again, and after four sessions with the psychiatrist, they finally gave me the diagnosis.
The psychiatrist referred me again to a specialist psychiatrist who referred me back again.
I wasn, once again, referred to a psychologist.
The psychologist said, if you’re not happy with your current condition, then you should go to a mental health professional.
So I went home and I tried for a month and a half to talk about it with my girlfriend, who was a therapist, who took me through it again.
After a month, she had the diagnosis, and then we went into counselling.
I saw a psychologist and after the session I was finally diagnosed.
I came home and was really excited to see my
