Saffron you are right about getting treatment.
I think canadian needs to get the help quickly. There is a lot going on there.
Drawing on your family support system is also important.
In my own experience depression was something that needed to be treated. It is a catch 22 though.
Once i got out of the stressful situation my mood got better.
After a while all aspects of you life become stressful creating anxiety, depression, etc.REPORT ABUSE
