    Antidepressants are really helpful, but they're not a magic pill that will instantly make everything easy and better. It sounds like you have a huge amount of stressors in you life right now which can be somewhat blinding, but you're still going to need to work through your issues and develop stratergies to cope when future issues arise.

    Not being about to care for yourself (not eating) and having suicidal thoughts (you have mentioned your desire to end your life/die several times in the last few days) is really serious and shouldn't be ignored. I urge you to seek help tonight.

    Even if you see your GP tomorrow, and get antidepressants, it will take days to see a slight change in yourself and up to a month to see a major change! It's not instant which is why you need additional support to deal with everything, and there are services your GP, psych, or even the health line can put you in contact with tonight.

    A friend of mine used to answer the phones for them. From what I have heard they really can help.

    I think this is a good suggestion, my sister used to work for them , they are really nice. Please reach out and get some help. I have felt this way , very depressed and suicidal and I know how how you feel. If you lived in my city I would come visit, please get help soon.

    Sorry to hear you are having a rough time.
    Perhaps a different counseller could be a good idea if the current one isn't helping.

    If you cant bring yourself to eat perhaps make some fruit smoothies to sip on to fill your tummy up a bit, look after yourself.

    Cass, have you thought of admitting yourself? I've been following your posts and it seems like your in a downward spiral. It doesn't sound like your current psych is offering you much in the way of help and phone lines and even here on BH we can only offer so much support. Maybe you could admit yourself to you hospital, you'll receive daily councelling and all other kinds of support and they will be able to discuss proper medication for yourself. They will also provide meals and make sure your getting what you need. I know it doesn't sound like an ideal plan, but it's not something to be ashamed of, I've been to the ward a few times when I was younger and they really are there to help you and will be able to help get you back on your feet while offering you a stable environment and support. I hate to read that your going through such a tough time and really wish I was able to do more. Take care of yourself

    Hi op,

    I am really sorry that you are going through this at the moment. I am suffering from depression as well and have felt suicidal too, so I can relate. I'm based in Melbourne so if you think it might help to talk to another mum we could meet up for a coffee?
    Regardless of whether or not we meet up. Please tap in to other resources and try and get help. I've been seeing a therapist for two years now so I no the whole process can seem a bit pointless sometimes but it should help.
    Feel free to pm me.

    Thanks everyone a change of scenery might be good for a few days though I know that won't solve everything. I couldn't sleep last night, I was awake at 3am and didnt get to sleep til 5:30. My dad doesn't give me any space either, he works but then when he's home he always asks questions etc and I tell him to leave me alone cos if I am angry etc I am not the best person to be around and he doesn't get it. He knows I see a psych and he constantly asks what we talk about which I say is none of his business. He is always telling me what to do or how to live my life and I have to keep reminding him that I am almost 30 not 13. Then there's sh!t going on with the kids and with my boyfriend and I can't handle it. I am trying to get a job and everything but it's hard. I have no motovation and I just keep thinking 'what's the point?'
