I left a violent relationship five years ago.. I have ongoing crushing depression and all sorts of problems with trust and self belief... I have been on and off anti depressants but have now hit a state of limbo where I largely achieve nothing daily , have gained alot of weight , drink too much of an eve , suffer insomnia , flashbacks....and chronic stress thru debt etc... does anyone have anything to suggest...?

Nope , I had a dv support officer thru the local police who helped and supported me so as to leave him safely , but nothing since..

go to gp and ask for referral for counselling. should have been offered alongside anti depressants.
but is not too late to ask for counselling on nhs to talk it thru and mvove forward
