I just can't do this anymore

I can't cope with the uncertainty, the fear, the whole lot.

It's too much. I have underlying conditions. Three teens of which two have special needs. They all have asthma as do I.

Has safety check has to be done and I'm too scared to allow it.

I am not coping. I feel totally anxious and lower than I have ever felt.

I am already prescribed antidepressants and anti anxiety meds and have been on them for years but this is too much.

I don't feel safe. My area still had a high transmission rate.

My head is scrambled

Hello oldbagface (I bet you have a lovely face really!) sorry you're feeling so low. You sound overwhelmed with it all. Are you in the shielding group? Can you get out for a quiet walk somewhere?

And are the teens driving you nuts maybe?

Teens not driving me mad.

Just can't face the uncertainty. Sure it would help if there was a credible plan but it seems like it will go on forever with wave after wave

The uncertainty is really hard. Probably not very helpful but the only way I manage at bad times is to think one day at a time. Mentally it helps. Get through today and then tackle tomorrow. Do my best, limit the news and social media. Do whatever you can for your physical health, mental health and your environment - small things to make you feel better, lots of self care... but it's really hard ❤️
