I think I might be depressed and I don't know what to do about it.

I have felt like this on and off for a few years now and I've always said to myself 'no you're just feeling a bit down, just stop being an idiot and carry on'.
At the moment I feel worse than I have ever done. Some people might remember a few months back I had a horrible time at uni with my housemates and I ended up leaving, well to update on that, I have never really got my confidence back, and I really don't know how I could face going back. I've got no confidence in myself or my abilities anymore, and I just feel stuck in a job that I don't like, knowing I'm capable of so much more.

I want to go to my doctor and tell him how I feel but I feel like an idiot. I don't even know how you're supposed to feel when you're depressed, but I don't want to be fobbed off because I don't want to feel like this anymore. I want more than anything than to go back to university but I just can't see how i'll be able to cope.

I don't really feel like I can tell anyone so I don't really know what to do.

Please help!

What do I say to my doctor and where shall I start?!

Well if you want to tell the doctor about it all, then I think you should tell him how you are feeling, pretty much what you've written here.
Also I think you should tell him about what happened with your housemates, how you have no confidence etc.
Do you want counselling? If so ask him to refer you to a counsellor.

print out your post and show it to him if you are having difficulty finding the words
I really think conselling is the way forward for you and hopefully once you start on that path you will start to feel better and can begin to get back the old you
