    What to try now?

    I have been diagnosed so many different things throughout my life.Severe low chronic depression, social anxiety, severe anxiety, bipolar, I have heard at lot of things and tried all kinds of meds. Honestly, I don't remember all the names of everything that I have tried, I just know that most of them caused me to go crazy. I have seen several therapist, counselors. Anyway, about five years ago I found out that I have high blood pressure and around a year ago started taking a medication to control it. After about four months I had to take myself off of the medication because I went in a severe irrational depression. I have been on a hard spiral down since. Currently, I don't want to get out of the bed. I use every bit of energy going to a new job which I thought would help by changing my environment. It's not helping. I am using all of my energy on this job and then come home and sleep. I fight hard everyday to get out of the bed and do for my family....This is the first time that I feel like there isn't anything left. It is so bad that when I get tired, I drop hard. I have fought for so long, and tried so many different things, What can I do now. I just don't think there is much left.

    Hi vctomb
    i wonder if there is some coincidence with the bp meds and your mood??
    Well done on getting up and going to work, I know you say it isn't helping but it sounds like at least a distraction. Try and not be so hard on yourself about being tired and sleeping so alot.
    I suggest you go back to the dr and speak about your bp and your depression, I know you have tried lots but it has to be worth a try, you may have to try a few combinations to get things sorted.
    It has been a few days since you posted this, I hope you are feeling a bit better
    Take care
