Well I went to a meeting last night.  It went a lot better then I thought it was going to.  I was quiet most of the time did more listening then anything.  I talked a little bit at the end about a little bit of stuff and managed to kind of connect with one of the other girls there.  It was nice.  I was a bit less anxious by the end.  I will probably go again.  There was a lot more people in the room then I thought there was going to be and we ended up splitting into two groups.  Everyone was really nice.

So I have decided I'm going to try and go to this Tuesday night's meeting. I talked to a friend about it and he thinks it'll be really helpful for me. As for the referral with my Doctor she changed her mind a decided it would be best to send one into The royal so we filled out the form at my last appointment and now it's just a waiting game again. Hopefully I don't have to wait for too long.

Well I didn't end up going.  I've been having very bad days this week and haven't been able to bring myself to leave the house other then for obligations.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to find someone to go with but I think I'll be more likely to go if I have someone there with me.  I just haven't really wanted to mention this to others.  I'll trying going to a meeting later this month. On a side note  I also found out from my doctor's secretary that my referral for an appointment with a psychiatrist doesn't seem to exist in my file.  She's on vacation right now so he's marked my file with urgent with a note for when she gets back. I'm super annoyed because it's been over 3 months and she's kept asking me if I've gotten a call and I kept saying no but she never checked on it.  Hopefully that'll get resolved soon although knowing my luck the one she's referred me to is probably no longer accepting new patients anymore.  If that's the case I really hope she can give me some sort of option to help.

Thank you both for the information it really is helpful. I just have to find a way to talk myself into actually going. I'll probably only listen the first time to see what it's like and what others are sharing.

Hi my name is Kayla and I just turned 26 not too long ago.  Sadkitty is a nickname I got in high school from my group of friends (it was one of many since there were multiple Kayla in my group of friends) I started having problems from a young age because of bullying.  No matter how many times I moved they seemed to just get worse and worse.  In high school things got really bad and I wanted so badly to reach out for help but the problem is I would have had to tell my family and I didn't want that added stress.  I wasn't until I was almost 23 that I decided to talk to my family doctor.  I've been on many different medications (thank goodness for health insurance) and after a while I started doing counselling.  I got to a point where I stopped taking my medication and just did the counselling for a while.  I stopped that after she decided to stop her private practice.  I went a few months with nothing and thought that I was okay.  Then unfortunately a few very negative events happened and I feel like I'm worse off then I was before which put me back into counselling last December.  When I first started all this I lost almost all my friends and was afraid of the medication.  Over the past few months I've slowly been getting better but I still feel like any small thing can set me off.  With everything with my doctor she labelled me as just having a general mood disorder but I feel like there is more to it.  I asked to be referred to a psychiatrist to be able to get a better diagnosis but that was several months ago and I've heard nothing. I'm almost at the point where I just want her to put me back on the last medication she had me on to see if that will help again.  I find that because of everything I find myself reverting and keeping to myself a lot more then I used to.  I was always kind of a introvert but I'm barely social anymore.

On a happier note though these are some things I enjoy music, photography, art, cooking, baking (I went to school for it), video games , pokemon go when I can get myself to leave my house and spending time with my littlest sister.

So I am new here.  I came across this page in my search when looking for support groups for people with mood disorders.  I've gotten to the point where I think I need to reach out to people outside of counselling for extra support and new ideas that I can try to help myself out with my own problems that I'm still learning to manage.  I don't really talk to my family about this kind of stuff and I have very few friends in which to talk to about this kind of stuff.  I found out there is a peer support group meeting in my city next week.  I have never been to any sort of support group meetings before so the thought of going really makes me anxious because I don't know what to expect and I'll be in a room with a bunch people I don't know.  I was wondering if anyone has gone to these meetings before and what it was like/approximately how many people are usually there?  I'm still trying to decide if I should go or not.  I think it might benefit me but I just need to be able to push myself to do so, which is hard considering recently I've gotten into the bad habit of only going to work and then spending my days off alone locked away in my room being anti social.  I've never been a good group person but I'm trying to improve on that.
