I have recently been diagnosed with clinical depression--a diagnosis that I am finding it hard to come to terms with. Stressed and lacking confidence at the moment certainly and tired long term since I had Glandular Fever 10 years ago. My GP referred me on wards at my request at the start of this crisis in December and I am having CBT although I dont like the introspection that this entails--not sure it boosts the confidence much although if I can lay some ghosts, that may be good! I do know what they are though. However, I am being pressured by my HT to go to Occupational health. At least it feels like pressure so what can/ should I expect from this, please? Will it be supportive or destructive? Will it be effective in any way? Please help.
