Ok, have been suffering anxiety and depression on and off for number of years, just recently seen psychiatrist and been formally diagnosed mixed anxiety depressive illness.been off work for a while and psych and Occ health both said im unfit for work. I have made lots f prgress but i cant bring myself to make phone calls.im scared to ring my v nice gp to see about extending my sick line and now ive missed an important appointment for my son becauae im so useless at the moment.i feel so bad about this.i feel so bad for my children having me s their mum because im such a mess.i know im really bad at the moment as i am finding personal hygiene a struggle and i just want to crawl back into bed now.this is such a ramble and is full of mistakes which would ordinarily bother me. I feel this illness is robbing me of my life and is delriving my children of the person i was.im so impatient and snappy and cant seem to manage the basics of looking after the house.i have a husband but i dont think he really gets this although he does care.im sorry, needed somewhere to get this off my chest.please tell me im not the only one like this.

It does get better..

I know because I have been there and an still here. It takes time and sometimes you can slide back but it does get better.

Today the sun is shining.. (well here in Essex) and the days are getting longer.
