suewatters1 Posted September 6, 2008 Report Share Posted September 6, 2008 Hi everyone I am glad I found this forum. I had mild depression all my life from a child in grade school. I got worst in my teenage years and early 20's because during that time I lost 2 brothers to lung disease.I found out 4 years ago I had ADHD which I am now taking medication for it. But last year my depression got worse and I found help and got some medication for it but the medication didn't really work. This January I started new medication and had it increase a few months later( I am now on 150mg of generic Wellbutrin SR twice a day).But lately with problems at work I am finding that my depression has come back with full force. I am getting counseling from a psychoanalyst but that was every 2 weeks changed to every 3 weeks due to his scheduling.I was getting counseling from the Canadian Mental Health Association about once a week dealing with self esteem. We finished the topic and my counseling left to go back to school. So I closed my file with them about 2 weeks ago because I didn't know what other goals we could work on. But last weekend I had a talk with the crisis team and I have now re registered back with them. I am going though the assessment process on Wednesday to see how they can help. I am also trying to get other counseling where I can just talk about my daily struggles but I am on a waiting list. Also that is only for a short term at $40. a visit.My main stress is work and the people I work with and the fact I have other medical health issues that make it harder on me because I have pain and weakness everyday. I don't have the energy to do things like I use to so I have to pace myself and take breaks more often. But with my severe ADHD and now my severe depression things are overwhelming.Thanks for letting me postSue Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
