Okay so I'm just going to list/go through a typical day for me this week and see if anyone relates...
Basically I have had issues with my appetite/stomach/gut recently which seems to be worse in the mornings. I do not take any antidepressants and never have so it's nothing to do with medication. My anxiety is present constantly, as soon as I wake up. I am on a short 'break' as I am waiting to hear back from a new job so my day consists of almost nothing apart from taking the dog out a walk once or twice. I feel this sickness / loss of interest in food all day, i feel conflicted as to whether or not i should eat because i feel so sick and my stomach can't handle food. Usually I forget to eat because of the lack of motivation to do simple tasks. By the time it gets to the evening I can maybe handle something and i'm very hungry by then but I want to keep a balanced diet and eat more during the day and less in the evening but i feel that my mental health (anxiety, depression, maybe stress) has something to do with me feeling this way, maybe it's affecting me physically (which is likely because body and mind are 100% linked), but i'm not sure. I'll be making an appointment with my GP soon about all my symptoms and possibly be starting on an antidepressant/anti anxiety medication. Does anyone know if medication relieves these side effects of mental health issues?
Hope you are all doing well, remember you are loved.
Peace and Love
