    Hi and welcome. Could you see another doctor or even request counselling? Be completely honest with your doctor about how much your mood is affecting you.

    Hi and welcome Adam....have you told your doctor everything you've mentioned in your post here? Have you had any counselling or other therapies in the past? These can be very helpful. Have you tried seeing another doctor?...one maybe that has a special interest in MH issues? No one here can make diagnoses but you'll get support and helpful suggestions. We're a friendly, non judgemental bunch so hang on in there and I'm sure you'll get helpful replies.

    good morning and thanks for the comments iv tried a counselling before and it was not much good tbh and my doctors surgery always have different doctors we get to see so they all differ with what they think and tbh iv really had enough of feeling the way i do its hard to tell people how i really feel as it sounds daft as iv been judged before for been depressed

    You should be able to ask to see someone with an interest in mental health, it just may take a little longer. Doctors certainly shouldn't be judging you for being depressed. Have you tried writing down how you feel and showing them?

    Re: counselling, sometimes it depends on the counsellor and being ready for it. You might find it more beneficial another time. It may also be worth contacting your local MIND as they often offer help and support.

    Hi and welcome. Jaq and Flo are right. Do try to go back to see a Dr and tell them everything you've told us x
