Hello, thank you very much for being so welcoming.
I think, looking after a new born baby entirely alone in a
foreign country without family support has really triggered anxiety and I am
terrified that a depression might be creeping up.
I had major depression in the past and had to be on
anti-depression medication for 5 years. I really felt that these medication
turned me into a emotionless zombie. Being on these medication feels like being
in a coma. Therefore, I really try to look after myself and fight anxiety and
depression by 'natural' and intelectual ways, e.g. exercise, healthy food, zero
cigarets, alcohol or drugs, enough sleep. I really want to avoid having to take
On the BeyondBlue website I found a link to another help
website. This one: https://www.mentalhealthonline.org.au
There seem to be online courses on this website. I am unable
to afford a psychologist or therapist. Therefore, I am planning to do one of
these online courses to get long term help with anxiety.
I am just wondering, if anyone has done one of these courses?
Also, would anyone know if there is help out there for
people who cannot afford therapy?
I wish you all a wonderful day.
