Feeling really overwhelmed, I have a docs app at 1115 today

Last year was an absolute nightmare, I was diagnosed with depression in Dec 12, I was prescribed Citalapram. This sort of made things better but then I started making mistakes at work, I realised that one of the side effects was "lack of concentration". I went back to the docs and she changed my AD's but they made me feel woozy. I was put on a "notice of improvement" at work which expired last October. My boss said he was pleased with my improvement and that I wasn't making any more mistakes than any other member of the team. In November I decided to come off the AD's.
Last week I made a stupid mistake which cost my employers �51.60, my boss then told me that one more mistake and I would be out of a job. I was in tears, until I got home and spoke to DP, I have only ever had the notice of improvement, no final written warning etc. so I don't think he can do that.
This of course has now made me paranoid of making more mistakes and I dread going into work, as I know that other team members are making worse mistakes than the one I made last week. I am starting to feel victimised.
I have tried ADs and talking therapy and not sure what to say to the Doctor today. I want to be referred for CBT but know that in my area the waiting list is huge.

As well as the work stress, I have the depression to cope with. My mum has to go for tests for shadows on her lungs, and my daughter keeps fainting so she is booked in for blood tests and an ECG. Plus very short on cash due to a Tax Credit cock up

When I asked my boss what happens after he told me that I would be out of a job, he said " I don't know, I have never had to deal with this before"

You poor thing sad I have no practical advice but it might be worth posting in employment matters topic as I'm sure your boss cant do what he says he will legally.
