    Surprised your going back to work so soon tbh. The norm seems to be signed off work for a month at a time until you recover, if your not ready you will just make it worse.

    I wouldn't go to work tomorrow & get back to the docs.

    Sorry for changing the subject slightly but though I may as well post in this thread.

    Ive been in hospital since early afternoon yesterday, came home from walking the dog and really couldnt draw a breath, most scared ive ever been in my life, really thought I was a goner! Barely managed to phone 999, thankfully the ambulance arrived in less than 10 mins and they quickly got me inhaling a nebulizer, what a relief that was!

    Got another nebulizer once we arrived in casualty then shipped off for a chest xray! After that I was sent off to the wards for the night and given steroids and antibiotics. Have had a further 2 nebulizers today and feel a lot better, also been given an inhaler.

    So, getting kept in for another night and hopefully allowed out tomorrow!

    Fucksake, scary stuff. Was it a panic attack? or were you dogging not dog walking and got a bit too excited?

    In all seriousness though, sorry to hear that Goofy. Glad i've kicked the cigs but these things can just happen out of nowhere. Hope you feel better soon mate.

    Wish you the best of luck in your "recovery", Baz.

    I've had some problems with eating disorders in the past, where I in the worst of times couldnt stand myself if I ate over 500 calories a day. Also had to run each day to burn the few calories i actually took in.

    Need to go in to see my boss as it is. My GP wouldn't sign me off on the sick last week so the first seven days are self certified, where tomorrow is my 8th day, so have to go in whatever

    Nasty Goof! Asthma attacks are real nasty but the inhalers are a godsend. Hope you feel better real soon as it really is a scary thing when it happens first time.

    Still in the 'probation period' of a new job so really had little choice. However I wish I didn't go as I had a total meltdown there today, broke down big time in the middle of the office, not good. Also despite the promise of an eased workload, I go back to find head office complaining about my workload

    You have plenty choice baz,
    you and your health are more important than your work
    if you don't feel up to it then don't go mate, as said above, it will only make it worse in the long run.
    You have rights mate, they can't just sack you or whatever when you are off work for this.

    hows the that little bubba of yours coming along anyway?
    mine is 10 1/2 months now and into fucking everything can't turn your back for 2 seconds or he is picking something up, i caught him with a wooden clothes peg in his mouth today :facepalm: feck knows where he got that

    Worst they can do is give me my notice as absence counts against me during the 'probation period' to be honest I couldn't care less if they do anyway it's a horrid place to work, i'm already searching for other options.

    Bubba is fine, she's 6 months now and is starting to get about by shuffling or crawling backwards she's a cow when it comes to food too, if you have food, or a drink for that matter in your hand she screams at you until she has something, or if she's close enough she'll grab at it and stick it in her gob

    It's possible, but the Mrs says I was showing signs before I started there and the job has jumped moved things along.

    i'll tell you one thing baz,
    your a brave man, im not so sure i could have come out with this on here if i had depression. Depression is not about being weak, it is a sign of immense strength mate, trying too hard to cope when things are getting on top of you, getting help is a sign of strngth as well mate you are stronger than any of us on here and im sure you will be feeling better in your own time

    Cheers Beez, it's just frustrating at the moment as it's stopping me doing what I want and need to do at times. I've told work i'm going to take it day by day, if i'm feeling ok i'll go in, if i'm not I won't bother wasting anyones time.

    i have been following this for a while now but tried to stay out of it since i don't share the opinion of most people and won't be of help for anyone here. be that as it may, i got a question now.

    what makes one person depressive but not another?

    let's say person a loses job --> gets depressive
    person b loses job --> is motivated to find another one etc., life goes on and all

    Depression can only be diagnosed by a qualified doctor but then they don't have the answers, neither do the psychologists etc that deal with you too. It's a mental state and can happen to anyone at anytime, even the multi millionaires get depression when they seemingly have everything they need/want.

    In my case I really don't know what started it off and I wouldn't really know where to start looking as to why it's come on all of a sudden as speculating will probably end up annoying me more.

    Sadly Pat nothing is straight forward when you have depression.
