Thread: recommend help in dublin

    Default recommend help in dublin

    Hi. I am really struggling with depression can anyone recommend a good professional in or around dublin?

    Ive tried a few before but they seem fake. More intetested in writing their books and taking the money.
    I get panic attacks and nervous and really really down like theres no hope.
    Im on anti d's. Could be for life. I should be happy as i have a lot. House job great kids. If it wasnt for them id think whats the point.
    My mother killed herself when i was a kid and my father was a bastard . He even broke my arm once and i have a big permanment scar where he bottled me. His mental tortue was the worse though it waa like living hell home and school. Been a long time now and i must find peace.

    Thanks for listening

    I wish I knew somebody in Dublin that could help you but I don't.

    Maybe call a helpline and they might be able to refer you to someone who actually knows what they're doing.

    Other than that all I can do is wish you well and hope you win your battle.

    I've had depression before and I can tell you that beating it will probably be the hardest thing you will do in your life. You wont get over it over night and may slip back into when you feel that you are making progress but just take it one day at a time and don't give up. Don't shut anyone out, accept their help if they offer it and don't be embarrassed about your illness. No one will laugh at you for having it.

    I know that it sounds easy but it will be anything but.

    I would suggest that you contact your GP, he knows your exact medical history, he can fast track you to see a counsellor, perhaps seek a counsellor who is a cognitive behavioral therapist, they tend to investigate the activating events behind your behavioral patterns or a person centred therapist, the belief being that if you talk to someone, you will eventually find the answers you are seeking. Therapies such as psycho-dynamic tend to favoured, especially by companies, as these can include short, intense therapy sessions thus more cost effective for companies, but this line of therapy does not suit every individual.

    As for your panic attacks & nerves, getting stressed out can be a huge factor. Foods containing magnesium are great at beating stress, you can get milled flaxseeds which include magnesium, from health food shops.

    Don't give yourself unachievable targets to aim for, start with trying to cope with 1 day at a time.

    I wish you well with your recovery, but once again, you really need to go & speak to your GP.

    Billy, if you are serious, asking for help here that is not related to the sex industry is a very bad idea. For every half sensible person on these forums, there are several idiots, trolls and jokers, and the sensible ones mostly won't have the relevant knowledge, including me

    If you are registered with a doctor, they would recommend someone to you. If you feel you want to talk to someone urgently, try the Samaritans. +323 1 872 7700, or if up North, +44 28 90664422. They are not clinicians, but they will point you to the help you need.

    Good luck.

    The above from Sandy seems sound advice. Get your GP to arrange an appointment with St Patricks, or similar. These places are all exceptionally well fitted out, and there should be no shame or embarrassment, at all.

    Good Luck.

    Its a hard first step to take, even calling a helpline. I have been thinking about if for months, and still haven't found the courage. Find myself breaking into tears most of the time, even when out jogging, feel like I am running on empty, and would be better of ending it. I don't know what's stopping me, but its something, all I can do is see what's ahead of me and hope there is something better.
    My advice is def talk to a professional, and spend as much time with your kids as possible, as kids bring out the best in people.
    Hope u find the courage to seek help.
