Thank you for sharing your story
I am wondering if you have tried to get another diagnosis?
Have you tried to go to another GP and get a referral to see another psychiatrist?
I completely understand what you are going through. That would be terrible to be misdiagnosed and given medication that you really feel you should not take.
In terms of career, what are your interests? I know you must have been asked that a lot but I would hate working in an area I do not like. We need stimulation in life, not to be bored at work and the only thing you do is wait for the end of the day so that you can go home! I am sure there are lots of things you could do :)
In relation to friends, I know it can be difficult, I myself really have struggled all my life with being shy and not very confident, thus not being especially outgoing it has always been difficult to make friends. Maybe once you find what your interests are you could enrol in different classes, what about a sport you d like to try or music?
All the best
