I have a history of depression, although I've been good for some years now. I'm one of those people who are just quite highly strung I think.

Work has been getting increasingly stressful and I don't feel like I am coping at the moment. I had a moment last week and booked a few days off next week and the week after to give myself some breathing space. The last week I've been unable to focus on what needs doing and have got very little done.

I don't know if this will pass or whether I need to take action now or to wait and see. I have only lost the MH flag at my GPs in the past few years and I hate the thought of having it applied agian or people thinking that I'm incompetent or unable to cope. But I don't think I can at the moment and I just don't know what to do sad

Best see the GP soon. Truly, you could make yourself worse thinking about it. You may only need short term help or medication if you deal with it early

Hope you feel better soon

It's really hard I'm the same . What I do is I write in a journal to try to track my mood
