I think I'm suffering with depression

Hi all,
I think I'm suffering kerb depression but am unsure. Have ended up taking this week off of work-said I had flu but dont. Have literally not left my bedroom since Sunday- have ignored any messages from friends etc. I feel like I'm just being lazy-but have literally U til today gone without food rather than go out to shop. Am not sure what to do. I've genuinely never felt like this before

Sorry for typos

Can you get a GP appointment? They can help.

Sounds odd but have just moved and just can't help but think that the bother of registering and then going back is just too much. I'm sorry know I sound like someone who isn't helping themselves-

Sorry you are feeling this way. Depression is shit. Definitely get yourself to your GP, there's lots they can do to help.

Agree with Wolfie, get a GP appointment, depression is horrible, but they can help. Just explain what you have put in your post to the GP.

I just feel like I'm sad and lazy- does that make sense? Have genuinely never felt like this before

Tell them you need an urgent appointment when you register (sounds like you do) they should be able to see you as a visitor until you are registered, DH has done that before whenvwe moved.

It could be depression, you could be having a burn out. I'd make time to go to the GP. If your feelings are worrying you or you feel different in a bad way then I'd go to the docs even if its just for a chat.

Thank you- it's odd but the thought of registering and then going back just sounds like too much. I can't take much time off work and have taken a week/

Thanks para- I've had a very bad few months on a personal level and thought I was dealing with it- but now it's hit me for six

If you see the GP they may give you a sick note if you need longer off.
