Hello again. I hope everybody is okay

Last year i was writing here about my depression and struggles to get Universal Credit when i lived in supported accommodation...
I just want to let you know, that I am under a doctor now, and started to take anti-depressants. Yesterday i had a phone chat with a therapist, but she told me that I need a psychiatrist, so she made a referall and a psychiatrist will contact me soon...

How is everyone's mental health today??? :)

    Hi, thank you.
    Yeah, my mate has helped me with getting a doctor, and last week I called my GP and said I get too nervous and stressed out around other people and I need some meds to calm me down. Is that a disability??

    Thanks, I am going for a walk soon :). The weather has been horrible since last month... Rain, mud... :P

    Hi @monsieur

    Your friend sounds lovely, I'm glad he helped you out! And yes, a mental health condition can be considered a disability under the Equality Act 2010.

    I hope you enjoy your walk, the weather has been quite mixed. I think we had the warmest New years Day on record, but there have been a few chilly days dotted around that.

    Yeah... The sky is beautiful tonight :D. Stars and a shiny moon 
    Yesterday i spoke to a nurse from a hospital and she asked me questions to make sure I will be okay, so she asked me if I want to commit a suicide, and I said no, ugh... I am happy person now
    I told her that I had rough time in January last year, but I am happy now.

    Those anti-depressants are okay. I will be having a therapy soon, I think. Glad to receive support in this Country. :)
