Welcome and good on you for having the courage to post too! I felt exactly the same and had enough of the feelings you mentioned...sad..empty....Many people also have a 'happy mask' they wear when they feel this way
Being the 'front' person at a gym is hard work as your job responsibilities include being happy and welcoming!
Please dont underestimate your GP....He/she has many people asking the same question about why they feel like you do
Its only my humble opinion PKR00402......You have everything to gain (peace of mind) and nothing to lose by making an appointment and having a talk with your GP. Many people feel a lot better after the appointment.I am only one of them!
Just a note....The forums are a safe and non judgmental place for you to post whats on your mind...Your privacy and well being are paramount to Beyond Blue
your thoughts/questions are welcome!
you are not alone
