Fair play to you @Unbelievable for coming forward, similar to what @Joxer_Daly did on the old forum a few years back.
I am going through something similar to you at the moment but I wouldn’t necessarily have called it depression. I have had a rough few years from an employment perspective and these things just started getting on top of me after Xmas where I simply haven’t had any confidence and a lot of self-hatred. I’m now working through my problems through counselling and taken time away from working to complete my qualifications.
Thankfully, I have a fantastic family on both my and my wife’s side who have been brilliant to me since the turn of the year and I’m starting to like myself a hell of a lot more. Like you, I have a plan in place to get my life back on track and fingers crossed things will work out for me in the long run.
Feel free to PM if you want as a problem shared is a problem halved.
