    this is my first post .i am dealing with a 18 year problem .its hit bottom now .drink helped for most of them 18 years but now i have grown up, i think.Time to move on.
    i have being seeing the doc for abour a year now, that was for extreme tierdness/ viral thing .it has eased now . i have told him i dont feel mentally well ( which Was very hard ),however he does not want to give me anti depressants .HE did give me some sleeping tablets ,which i used during the day to numb things, helped a bit ok .
    in general ,I think he reakons i have still a viral thing.
    days seem to be a lot harder now .

    nice to chat anyway

    that you've been dealing with it for 18 years, not that you're 18 years old.

    You should be speaking with a professional. Unless you work nights, you should be taking your sleeping meds at bedtime or shortly before then. Not to numb yourself during the day,

    Good luck & keep in touch. dolsgirl

    Are you on the right board? This is the FM/CFS board, were you looking for the Depression forum? If so you can go to the 'Message Board' link at the top of this page and just click on Depression.

    HOpe you get some help soon. Good luck.

    Shalom, Shirl

    Thank you
    shirl,dolsgirl and starbright1m for your replies .
    I am 33 male , hence the problem really started when I was about 15 .Before that I reckon I was an anti-social youth (lol).I take drink/tablets when I have to mix with others other wise I feel like a freak .for the last year maybe as a result of depression /anxiety for so long I got the tiredness thing .I have seen a specialist who mentioned thyroid , but bloods look ok now .I will be seeing him again in June. The tiredness has improved a bit .The worst is the feeling I get around people even my own family I get so anxious .I don't take stuff every day only when I really must.So I think anti depressants might help .The doctors are dealing with the tiredness and maybe me throwing in depression might not be helping.I will break out of this box!
    ( i hope anyway )
