I never use to be confident with people until I was put on meds....i don't take meds anymore,Iv been off them about five months and have been doing really well.But in the past two weeks my confidence with people has really dropped,some days I don't even know how to do my work.I work as a caregiver in a resthome and even thugh Iv been told I'm very good at my job I find I'm questioning my own work.Started to feel depressed and not wanting to talk to people.My bf wants me to move in with him which is fine by me but im nervous about it.The only way I can describe how I'm feeling is that I feel like I'm not good enough for him or my friends which I know is completely stupid coz I'm a great caring person.Is this the start of a depressive episode or is it a confidence issue? I don't even know what;s caused my confidence to go down.Even my creativity has been smashed to pieces...I find I'm criticizing myself a lot.I'm not happy.
