    Hey @samzack I'm sorry you're struggling with your mental health. Have you spoken to your GP about this?  I think it'd be super important.

    Hi @samzack If I have missed you before now. Then I welcome you to our community. 
    How long have you felt this way. Even if you have spoken with your Gp before please do so now. 
    Do you feel you can talk to your Gp. 
    I have had mental illnesses most of my life. And medicated. And I’m in my winter years now. Until very recently I haven’t spoken to my Gp for many years and it really has been a good thing to do. 
    It will take courage but it will really help you. If you feel you can’t. Try a telephone appointment. 

    I wish you well. And really hope to see you around our coffee lounge xx

    Really sorry to hear that @samzack I know how bad the black dog can get at times.  Might it be worth having another chat to your GP? Maybe the meds need tweaking? 
     Do you have any friends you can talk to about this? Talking often can help a fair bit. There's also Samaritans who can be great to talk to with no judgement.
