Just want to tell somebody that I finally admitted today to the GP that I needed help and am suffering with my mental health.

It felt good to actually say out loud how I felt after a couple of months of me not wanting to admit that I am suffering.

That's really good. It starts the journey to better health

Well done. You have taken the first step to a better future. X

Thank you. The first step is the hardest and now off work for a week to help

It's the hardest but the best thing you could do. X

I am doing ok being kind to myself eating healthy and having half hour walk every day.

But the anxiety has kicked in about going back to work on Wednesday.

Thank you for asking.

I have gone back to work on reduced hours and I am struggling of which I am ashamed to admit I just think I am useless and rubbish at my job I just want to hide away from the world but I am a single parent and need to work. But I am so sad and lay awake at night worrying.
