Dealing with mental health issues

Right where do I even start... I am a long term regular here, but for the sake of this post I wanted to create a new profile as this post is really hard for me to do, and don't really want people knowing the below about me, despite not knowing anyone here personally, but I feel like this is my last resort.

For the last 18 months, I have been dealing with depression/mental health issues off and on, literally nobody knows quite how bad it is though. Everyday is a struggle, and it's just getting worse and worse and I have no clue who to turn to. I have a really few close friends and family, but they all have their own stuff going on and don't want to burden them with my problems, I just feel like my problems are silly, I feel like everyone would be better off without me around.

I did visit the GP last year but nothing came of it really.

I don't know who and where to turn to, so my last resort is to post on here, and see if I can get some advice from someone who has potentially felt this way, or helped anyone in this situation before.

Any advice at all will be appreciated.

I can't offer any first hand experience however I wanted to let you know your not alone and please carryon posting here, we are all here for you.

If you feel you cant talk to friends or family, have you thought about visiting the mind website?

Taking a walk or being active can be a great first step.

Im sorry that youve found yourself in this situation and I hope as a community we can help and offer you some good advice. Obviously, above all else, professional advice is the first signpost BUT that doesnt mean you shouldnt seek help from other places such as this forum. Knowing youre not alone is so important right now.

Are there any key points in your day to day life that you feel are causing you to feel this way (e.g. getting up on a morning, loneliness, work, health)

My son age 22 has suffered with depression, anxiety and mental health issues for a while, so I can understand the everyday struggle. Your problems are not silly as the saying goes a problem shared is a problem half. I would suggest you go back to your GP surgery and maybe see another Dr, Im sure if you explain to them how you feel, they will be able to help in some way. I also no that the Samaratins, are fantastic and really help. Im also so pleased you could put on here your feelings and thoughts as this is a positive step forward. My son is on tablets at the moment and this is helping him to cope with certain situations. If you would like to PM, we can chat as sometimes even someone to chat with can ease a problem. My son did try a counsellor, but in his case it didnt help. I am sure all of us on here will offer a listening ear and support you as much as we can.

I could have written this myself. I dont know about you but on my bad days I think I will definitely ring the doctors and get help but then Ill have a good day and it seems so silly? No real advice expect you really arent alone. My mood swings are so frequent these days its hard to keep on track. One day I hope I muster up the courage to see someone, as Im sure you do too.

Thank you for the messages, I don't even know why I posted it on here, I guess i just needed to admit how I'm feeling, and for me right now, the best people are people I don't know personally.

Really appreciate everyone's words.
