Hello everyone,
Thankyou to everyone who has even taken the time to read this, I'm not sure where this is going to get me but the desperation for a different life is real. I'm 28 and severely depressed, this was diagnosed 5 year ago and despite it being a desease of the mind it has truely destroyed me from the inside out. My teeth, my hair, my skin and my body have all taken a beaten from the depression. I am finally seeing some light as I'm getting some help for the depression but I just can't see me ever getting out of this rut with my physical appearance. I want some help to be able to get some surgery to assist with the weight loss along with some treatment on my teeth that the NHS won't offer (despite it all having a major effect on my mental state) As you can all probably tell I am desperate and I pray you all know I am not doing this for selfish reasons. I have a four year old boy who I'm ready to be healthy for, I actually want to be in a fit state and live a full life to watch him grow. Depression and mental illness have destroyed my life, please help me rebuild from this awful disease, it has already taken so much from me. Thankyou again for even taking time to read.
