Feels like I'm moving in the right direction.

I finally made an appointment with my doctors surgery this morning, could not see my doctor and had to wait around a while, but I had nowhere else to be. Got to explain my situation and how I felt to a professional, who was very sympathetic and helpful. They gave me details of how to self-refer to the local healthcare trust and access talking therapies (which I understand could take a while to put in place). They also started me on an anti-depressant, as part of a multi-faceted approach to treat my depression. It was explained this would take a while to take effect and to find an appropriate dosage. But, after years of struggling on my own, by finally asking for help, I feel I have started taking steps to move forwards in my life again. C
