yes thank you, I'll be checking them out. Think some are based in US right?! I'm in UK. I have used MIND which is a good charity based mental heath group and offer therapy, but the lady I was seeing, it was for only 6 weeks which seemed not long enough and although the lady was lovely, her main advice was to take bubble baths and go for coffee and treat myself, towards the end of the sessions I got sacked from the job I was in, so as it was ending I needed it more than ever! They also have long waiting lists, I think everything has long waiting lists in London. I lost 3 jobs last year, the one I resigned from because it was stressing me too much and I had problems with some of the people I worked with, spent the last 2 months of working there on the sick with depresion anyway. Then I had a job for 3 months where I felt totally in the dark for most of that time. When they sacked me I nosedived big time, didn't claim any benefits for 3 months, was just lost. Then I got a job which lasted a week and felt I needed a bit more support settling in and had somebody with major issues, blaming me for her aggressive behaviour so I got sacked again, the only witness that could have stuck up for me was so scared of her they spent most of their day on walkabout rather than sit at the desk opposite her. I tried to stay positive, tried to do training and look for work but I just got worse and worse until the last few times I went to sign for work, jobseekers they call here, I was crying so much they gave me a glass of water and told me to go home. My doctors surgery give me the impression they either think I'm faking to get out of work or that it is just because of my housing situation and therefore temporary, I've been told that it's my fault if I let people, for example my mother, upset me because I choose to talk to her. I get told to relax, don't stress myself and if I get confused keep a notebook. More often than not I leave that gp more upset than I went in. I can't sit away from people when I'm there and my heart starts racing and recently had a full blown panic attack in the doctors office. I went up three or four dress sizes last year, besides comfort eating, I'm hardly going out. I just cry and cry and cry

I'm sorry things are so bad.
yeah, i'm in the U.S. but there are people from the UK here, i hope they will post some advice. maybe if u post a bit in the depression section, more people will see it & respond. i don't know how things work over there.
you can always talk on this forum if you need to talk & if knowing others are going through similar stuff helps, read a bit. i find it helps me a lot, hope it helps you.
