Cool A question on Depression, please

I talked to my doctor and opened up to him that i felt that i had some sort of depression,
i found that pretty hard to do as i feel that it is a huge taboo subject and shouldnt be,

He told me to take Affex for a month and to see a councillor,
To be honest i,m still not sure that i have it!!

My symtoms are sadness, very low self asteem, 'heavy headness!!' slight headach, muddled head, poor concintration, indecicive, little interest and not bothered feeling and anger sometimes.

Maybe someone out there that reads this can give me some advice and can relate to this.


Thanks.


Noel.

Re: A question on Depression, please

No one here is a doctor so all we can do is give our opinions. You do have the majority of symptoms that constitutes depression.

A counselor or therapist can always be helpful

I don't have a clue what Affex is

take care

Damn right it shouldn't be a tabboo subject, or anything to be ashamed of either. Now you know you have it, working out how to get out of it is the next step! Acceptance plays a big part.
