Good luck, I hope you get the help you need right now.
I'm going to give it a bit of time so I can figure out exactly what to say to the gp. I want to go in on a day when my mood is calm and theres no big stresses hanging over me. I might wait a couple months til my next exams are over.
I have been down but theres been big changes in my life so being sad at the moment makes sense. I have lots of projects to distract myself with and I go walking and get out and that does help.
Its times where I feel like my brain is totally overstimulated and I feel like Im on something that I struggle with. When this is going on I can't think about anything that is even slightly stressful (good or bad stress) I always try to balance my reactions to things but my friend (Dean) has said to me for about 2 years that he thinks theres something there I need to address and no matter how much I fight him on it, ....underneath I know he's right
Lately probably due to big changes in my life Im very sad but its ok.
I've been giving it thought the last while and I do think its more than anxiety and it might be something hereditory. My grandmother committed suicide at about my age and my mother was committed when she was younger than I am now though I don't know why. I only discovered any of this after my mother died so there isn't anyone I can ask.
I'm being objective about it or at least trying. I've decided that its probably true that most people don't feel how I do and I think I would like to be like them. I think its worth looking into if that might be possible.
