Thought I'd better introduce myself. I've had "depression" since I was 14 (I'm nearly 30) but was not properly diagnosed until I was 20 and took an overdose. To cut a long story short I came off my medication at the end of 2009 because I got a really good job that I'd trained for, knew I'd never be able to get up every morning with my medication and honestly believed I was better. Well it all came back with avengence around Christmas time. Why I felt ok for best part of a year I don't know but there you go. Now I hate having to go to work every day but have got too used to having the money so don't want to give it up. I've gone back on other medication which doesn't seem to be working very well so far. I've had loads of days off sick as a consequence but for now I'm still there. Don't really know what the solution is. Other things you might want to know is I am prone to the odd bout of self-harm (never done it very badly though) I drink far far too much and I've never really believed that my diagnosis of depression is entirely accurate. I've always felt there's something else. On a happy note I'm into all kinda of music and tropical fish!
