Re: Feeling the stigma

It’s so sad that people are so unkind. I tend to try and feel pitty for there ignorance. Tv etc doesn’t help people’s perceptions

Re: Hi

I have found local mental health support groups helpful.
I haven’t attended any but I know locally to me there are introvert groups that do social things together, try researching some.
I am similar I wear a uniform and it kind of acts like a protective shield.

Re: overthinking

Try the old train station technique- the thought is the train coming into the station, you are stood on the platform. You can see the train coming into the station you have the choice whether you get on or not.

Re: Layers with people

It’s all front. Loads of noise and nothing behind it. Strong have nothing to prove so no need for all the noise

Re: depression/anxiety and work

We all respond in different ways personally I’m at my best when I’m at work. Seeking support here is great also maybe try a support group. Gp or meds review may be advisable

Re: Antidepressants,

I was adamant that I didn’t want to go on antidepressants as I wanted to still feel emotions etc. I thought I’d be like a zombie. I’m so glad I started them. It sounds cliche but I feel like a new woman. I am having therapy to. But the meds have definitely helped

Re: unhappy

You have change coming up with starting a new course and all the related stress and emotions. Maybe think about joking a support group atleast initially to help provide some understanding company through the transition.
