Hurts Like Hell

i HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FROM MANIC DEPRESION AND ANXIETY FOR 6 MONTHS,AFTER HAVING UNSUCCESSFUL COSMETIC FACIAL SURGERY.I HAVE FOUND MYSELF DRIVEN LOWER THAN I EVER IMAGINED,MY SURGEON LEFT ME WITH 2 RATHER NOTICEABLE SCARS BY THE SIDES OF BOTH EYES WHICH LOOK RIDICOLOUS,I AM UNABLE TO EVEN LOOK IN THE MIRROR ANYMORE.MY LIFE HAS FALLEN TOO PIECES,I'VE LOST MY FRIENDS, MY SELF ESTEEM AND PRETTY SOON MAYBE MY JOB.MY GP PUT ME ON AMYTRIPTYLINE WHICH IS DISGUSTING AND HAS NOT HELPED IN THE SLIGHTEST  ALLS I HEAR IS GIVE IT TIME  AS EACH DAY PASSES I GET LOWER AND LOWER,THE ONLY THING KEEPING ME ALIVE IS MY GIRLFRIEND,HOWEVER I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG THAT WILL LAST.I WOULD LOVE SOME MENTAL PEACE EVEN A FEW HOURS,BEING TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR OWN MIND IS HELL .I WOULD NOT WISH FOR ANYBODY TO TRAVEL THIS ROAD

I can relate to you, have you told your girlfriend any of this? Maybe that will help get you away from being stuck in your mind. Even if you don't feel like talking about it to her, it could really help. One of the best things I find is when I can talk to someone, especailly when I don't feel like talking to anyone Even if you just start telling others around you how you feel, getting a group of people to connect with helps a lot(and being on here will definately help) I'm sorry if this isn't helpful, I hope things work out.
