Hi all, im debbie. I am 43 years old, a single parent of an 11 year old daughter. I have suffered from depression for 11 years now since the birth of my daughter. I was attending a clinic at the doctors surgery where i saw a psychiatric nurse and she advised me to join a depression group where i made some friends. I have since lost my bottle as it were and havent been for weeks. I dont seem to be able to do anything right, am extremely paranoid at present and have lost the will to live. My daughter is the only thing keeping me going as she is incredible and i couldnt do anything to hurt her so i just carry on existing, but not living as i should.
