I have found Sane site having been off work with stress, my doctor would not prescribe Prozac despite this working in the past for me and recommended CBT instead without telling me there was an I8 week waiting list. I returned to work having finally being given lowest dosage on a phased basis but work situation had deteriorated further into chaos and after 3 weeks I broke down and I have dropped into depression.
I have been helped by the Home Treatment team at my local hospital and now have my first therapy appointment following a preliminary assessment tomorrow.
Does anyone understand why I feel like a domestic cat turning feral, trapped in a cage and fighting for my life without the correct skills. Wild, vicious and uncontrollable.
I am reading all I can to try to understand but have found it such an terrifying uphill struggle despite Mindlessness, Ruby Wax and self help books and don't feel I am progressing fast enough.
It is not easy trying to explain how I feel to people who have no experience of these dark thoughts of failure, hopelessness and despair hence me joining in the hope that someone has felt the same and come out the other side
