Anxiety & depression flared up last night. Big time. I haven’t actually slept at all. Called in sick for work. Work isn’t helping actually. I’m in a job that means I’m working long days. I’m physically & mentally drained. I’m not eating properly. Not able to correctly look after myself. I literally do not want to leave my house. I’m so uncomfortable. I hate my job. I don’t want to stick it out. I want to leave. But feel like I have to hang around cause it’s money. 😞 I’m so lost

hand hold been there and it sucks. Slow deep breaths (literally) and little steps (not literally) will help you through things a day at a time. Congratulate yourself on your successes, no matter how small. A trip to the shop for food, for example. I know that probably seems massive right now, but you need to eat. Have no qualms about asking a friend for help. Mindfulness is very helpful for anxiety. CBT can also help but takes more professional guidance, IMO. You will get out of this.

Poor love flowers remember this will pass but put all the effort you can into self care - work can wait right now. Maybe just a cup of tea to start? flowers
