Hi I've haven't got a history of illness and have akwayss been a positive person. I have a good professional job and gorgeous children but things have changed recently. I wonder whether I am depressed. I look back and can see things have crept up gradually over the last year. I now feel detached from things, I force myself out with children and friends and put on my happy face which I'm good at. I had my firstbpanic attack whilst with my 15 year old son. I now no what it was and feel I'm constantly battling to keep another away. my heart races and I feel useless at everything. my husband was nagging me the other day whilst in the car Nd I couldn't stand it and opened the car door whilst it was moving, luckily my son held me in and my husband stopped. my son had to calm me down as I was hyperventilating. I explained to him that I just needed air as dad was moaning Nd I felt claustrophobic. am I I'll?

Hi there. I would certainly pop along to the GP and have a chat about all this. You have been a positive person before, you will get there again. Depression does have a horrible way of creeping up on us. I hope you decide to see your GP and wish you a speedy recovery. Julia

thanks Julia. I'm just concerned they will speak to my work and also that once I start speaking I'll blue and never stop if that makes sense.

They don't contact your work :) They will give you a sick note with 'depression' on it if you need time off, otherwise, there is no need for your work to know and they certainly won't find out from the GP. They aren't allowed to disclose patient to anyone.
