    Oh hun if only it were that simple hey! Those who haven't suffered mental illness will never fully comprehend that its not just something you can 'just deal with' or 'snap out of'. My dh was much the same as yours, so I made him come with me to the dr and the dr explained to him its not that simple, its not something we have control over. Even then he wasn't convinced but made more of an effort to be supportive, could this be something you do with your dh? Dh has recently been diagnosed with a major depressive illness and anxiety and only now he realises what its like. It wasnt that he didn't care before, he just didn't understand what it was like, and got frustrated that he couldn't 'fix' things, maybe your dh is the same?

    Im so proud of you for making thr appointment with the gp, its a big step in the right direction.

    I wish i was closer to offer some more practical support and a hug. Take some deep breaths, and take today a minute at a time if you have to.

    I read a quote recently that really summed it up perfectly - "telling someone with depression or anxiety to just get over it is like telling someone with cancer to just stop having cancer".

    I hope your DH comes around and starts being more supportive

    Hope the GP visit goes well and you can get some good support services around you x

    Hi there @yadot, your post has given me such a heavy heart and have showed your bravery of even posting.
    When is you appointment? Please keep us posted on how you are going!
    And if you ever need to talk just PM me if you like.
    Do you ever have some you time? This is such a great way to boost that happiness back up.
    There is so many things that are therapeutic like yoga, gym, getting a manicure/pedicure, going to a golf range and hitting some balls. This is just a couple of things that kept me going when I used to be down.

    Keep your chin up ok

    Big hugs and kisses!

    Hugs hugs hugs to you. You are not alone. And you are so brave and amazing for writing this post.

    I 100% understand about the gp and the anxiety about drugs. I wonder if you might be able to see someone more specialised who may not just prescribe a standard drug but who might counsel and tailor any treatment plan to you? The reason I ask is because when I was in the depths of anxiety/depression I found a psychiatrist who did not medicate straight away. He spent ages talking/counselling before prescribing me with anything and even then I didn't take the meds and he was fine with that but they were there just in case. His counselling gave me tools to manage the most crippling OCD that took over my life to the point where I couldn't drink water unless it was from my own tap in my own house (and the list goes on). I just hope you can find someone like that who can help without adding more stress to your life. I found a psychiatrist better than psychologists because they are a lot cheaper being covered mainly by Medicare. The one I saw was in adelaide, if you happen to be in SA I can pm you details if you like. All the best to you.

    This is not good know but it happens and you should not get worried about it. I would like to suggest you to go for a counselling before it get worse. Everything is going to be fine. Most of all do not feel embarrassed at all. This is the first sign of recovery that you are talking about it and seeking for help.Best Wishes!
