Think I'm suffering from depression. One mate , single 39 . Son of nine yrs old. Work home work home school in between. Looking after disabled aunt, even the cat is getting me down. Can't jump back to who I used to be, people have moved on including his dad, like I have no emotion on anything. Jokes told to me aren't funny anymore, I dnt cry I dnt drink I dnt do drugs an I'm still struggling. Feel like I need to tell someone so I dnt go mental. I got a tattoo of a semi colon on my wrist few weeks back to prove that every time I look at I didn't give up. I thought it would help my mind switch on, sadly nope. I think when people are around me they feel my vibe. I'm soo bloody unhappy. I sleep for an hour an wake tossing an turning . Even when he is at dads I just stay in . I see mate which is mum from lil one from school we go out sometimes but she has her life.

You don't. You change as a person when things change around you. Have you been to your GP? Have you any history of MH problems?

No gp, not my but just general down time, but this is getting worse. Just dnt see fun in anything anymore, it's like everything's bland unfun an pointless.

Yeah so you're depressed...go to your GP as first port of call. They will assess you etc

You do sound depressed. Your GP can help, it is definately possible go get back to feeling like you again with the right help and support.
