Hi, as a first time user of this kind of service i was a little apprehensive. I have all of my life been the one everyone else turns to, to help sort problems, give advice and basically be there for whomever needs it....NOW, i find me, stuck in this awful situation with no idea how to deal with it. I discovered by accident that i am apparently suffering from depression and i am gobsmacked, not anything to do with stigma or anything like that, but to do with the fact it's me who is the fixer and i'm totally dissapointed in myself that i am the one needing fixed. I have a great doctor and several other medical problems mainly due to hormone issues. I have been on HRT for 7 years and was convinced the way i felt was due to that but no, the doctor did tests and tells me i'm depressed, which if i'm honest i knew i was. My problem now is...........how do I deal with this. If i had my own way right now i would disappear until i felt better as i don't want to be around anyone and i don't want to talk to anyone i just want to be left alone and get better in the way i normally do when i feel low, but this time i cannot get out of it and my doctors says it's depression. Not sure what else to say!
