Hi Mocha Delight
you have made an excellent point with your thread topic....We have spoken before on another thread and thankyou for being a part of the Beyond Blue forum family!
You are stronger than you think by discussing your depression with two family members and I feel for you with the lack of understanding you experienced
GP's have a greater understanding re our mental health than even 10 years ago....I still see my GP every 6-8 weeks for a 'tune up' with my depression and 'leftover anxiety'
Even if you print out this page including my response....your GP will understand. Can I ask if you 'get along' reasonably well with your GP?
You dont have to endure these horrible feelings Mocha....There is always hope..This is my 37th year with mental health problems and you are doing well by posting about it as well as you have
we are here and listening
