    Part of your brain is looking out for the rest of you.

    Listen to it.

    I agree with nvr's diagnosis...

    I think you should have a better outlet for your intelligence...

    you should be teaching at university or doing something that is much more mentally challenging and stimulating.

    Definitely check with a professional about your state of mind.

    I shall not embarass you with any outward demonstration of mushyness

    just letting you know how much I and others here on JWD care about you, and respect you.

    The "paralysis" feelings you have experienced are absolutely a clear sign of depression. Some people are prone to it, it is organic, it has to do with brain chemistry. I will be surprised if you are not given a prescription for an SRI. If so, give it a chance.

    Speaking from experience.

    Hi Terry

    Sounds like some subliminal fight or flight issue. Hope you get the necessary help and direction as soon as possible.

    You take care of yourself and don't get too anxious.

    Terry, So sorry to hear this, you must be having a really tought time. It is great your manager is so understanding. If you have worked there very long and want to go back I bet you could. Home someone can help. For me, right now Cymbalta and adding in Wellbutrin seem to be helping (no more booze hasn't hurt either).

    good luck and best wishes, oompa

    I heard a great line from a film years ago... and it has stuck with me:

    "Trapped in the inner circle of thought"

    Sometimes, in order to get "untrapped", some of the simple things in life "give". As they are easier to "escape from".

    This can be the routine of work, a simple trip to the supermarket or miriad other things that seem easy.

    Maybe that fits you, maybe it doesn't - we all know our own "journey"... but I thought that I'd share it.

    I hope all goes well with your appointment. You have loads of people on here that wish you well.
