Maybe your medication needs changing. But also maybe there is a difference being depressed with no obvious reason, and being depressed for a reason.

Hi tinkers, hope you can manage to eat a little more today - you only have a few hours to go before you see your doctor and you don't want to go passing out before you get there, from hunger.

If you are drinking tea, why not try dunking a few nice biscuits, plain or fancy ones as they will help fill you up and chewing them won't make you feel sick. I like digestives or the oaty ones that I buy, and dunk away when I am low lol

Take care and let the tears come if need be, but try to keep yourself occupied so you don't dwell on the nastiness you have received, take support from your o.h. and from us here and know we are thinking about you

Yes, I can see what you mean Michelle.. Why not see what your doctor suggests then before saying anything about mental health support.

When I ask ask doctor for a referral I'm worried its going to make this situation a lot worse

AnnCardiff

Thank you so much ladies I can't face anything to eat today as yet but am drinking lots of tea

It's a Gud idea to write things down before seeing the doctor

AnnCardiff

AnnCardiff Report 27 Nov 2013 13:07

good advice from Ann - write things down so you don't forget anything

AnninGlos

AnninGlos Report 27 Nov 2013 13:05

I think you have to be honest and firm with your doctor, don't let him fob you off, tell him how you feel, concentrate on you rather than what has happened to make you feel like you do, but don't ignore that either, just make it secondary to how you are feeling. And don't forget to ask to be referred. It might help if you jot things on a piece of paper and keep it in your hand to remind you.

Copied and pasted from above site...

To determine if depression is part of an eating disorder, doctors use a well-tested battery of questions that tease out the most common symptoms of depression. These include:

Feelings of sadness or unhappiness
Loss of interest in activities that once were pleasurable
Loss of libido
Irritability or anger
Sleep problems
Loss of appetite
