Im not a newbie,but am to this topic..
I have been to the docs twice as can't seem to get back to how i was,
Im not sleeping at all and barely eating..just can't seem to stomach anything,not even chocolate.
I just dont know what is wrong with me,not crying all the time or even most of it just feeel dazed though...
Am snappy with my children and tired all the time,but i don't know why..
Have had a lot to deal with over last 18months but thought i had come out the other side,so why have i gone so down hill so quickly?But most of all how do i get back to being me again?
Doc has referrred me for councilling but in the meantime,what do i do?

Has the doctor mentioned anti depressants because it sounds as though you are depressed...or very anxious. Hardly surprising if you have been through a lot in 18 months.

While difficult things are going on poeple often gte on and cope with them, generally it is afterwards that it hits them.

It's harder when you have children as you really don't get a moments peace to sit down and sort your head out. Especially if you are tired.

Don't beat yourself up about it. You have done the right thing by going to the doctors and also by recognising you need help.

I can't say much more, but I have been where you are and you will get through it.

Take care.
