I'm new to this forum but don't know where to start. I feel like I've had problems for many years but only very recently have I been persuaded to seek help.
I have an appointment with my GP next week but I have great difficulty in talking about how I feel and think I will end up not getting the right help because of it.
I hate being at home because I'm the primary carer for my disabled mother. She is very hard work and blames me for everything that goes wrong. I know she doesn't mean to upset me but it's becoming such a problem I dread finishing work each day.
I have also been having issues at work, largely as I'm the only male in an office of 15 employees. I feel very isolated at times but this makes me feel guilty as the ladies I work with are a great bunch, it's just that it's very difficult to join in sometimes.
In the last few days I have begun to talk to one of the ladies about how i feel and she has been incredibly supportive. Talking to her has really helped. However, my fear is that I will over burden her with my problems and she will stop being so caring.
Hopefully once I have seen the doctor I will have a better understanding of how to deal with how I'm feeling but in the meantime I will just have to struggle on
