I teach English abroad and have for the last ten years or so. But this time out I am going through a severe depression. I am breaking into tears, i am so angry all the time, i hate myself, I HATE myself,i feel guilty and exhausted and just like crap i think about suicide but in a very offhanded way. I don't like this person who I am. If I was in Canada I would go to the doctor immediately. I started a new stressful "boss" job here, i have no support system, and doctors who speak English aren't going to happen. Add all the regular stress to living in a foreign country, language, food...*sigh*. Things are only getting worse. Does anyone have any advice for medecine-free coping strategies?
