Need to vent

Ive been struggling on and off for 14 years with no support as my dh thinks its just a state of mind. Yesterday I was told that I'm always f***ing miserable and that we don't have a relationship anymore and that it's about time I cheered up! I've tried everything to make him understand but now feel more suicidal than ever and wonder if it's my relationship that is contributing to my depression. I've finally made appt to see gp but suspect I'll be prescribed anti d but feel its more than that and know I won't get any support from home. I know theres no magic answer but just needed to vent to people who do understand that I'm ill not just miserable!

It's a vicious circle isn't it. My ADs have helped level me off, and my mood swings aren't quite so severe any more.
If you explain to your GP, I'm sure they will prescribe the best therapy/medication for you.
Keep posting if it helps, we all need a good rant every now and again :)

Maybe ask about counselling when you're seeing the gp? Might help you sort out which things are making you feel better/worse. Might be chance to sort out stuff about your relationship.

ETA someone on here just said to me - only someone who doesn't understand depression can say things like that. Hang in there and see if the gp's got any ideas.
