I have recently moved from belfast to london. I am a social worker and the work was drying up in belfast and I have always wanted to live in a big city. So i signed up to an agency and they got me a job within a week. I have left a fantastic bunch of mates and an amazing boyfriend behind (he his trying his best to find work and come over too). I can just feel myself wanting to harm myself again because I know in the long run that this move will be good for me but the first month has been terrible. My house mates are great but it's no replacment. I think it all happened too quickley and my feet haven't hit the ground yet. So worried that this may cause me to slip back into a dark depression again. Has anyone had to move away from home for various reasons?
