Help, the old 'black crow' (depression) is sitting on my shoulder!
I posted on here about 18 months ago about my partner going into rehab etc. Brilliant news, he's been sober for 18 months and goes to AA meetings every day, except Friday - which is 'our' night. I've been in my new job for 1 year but it is mainly office based (for a healthcare agency). Although the hours are great - 9-5, weekends off I miss the hands on care ,patient contact & being part of a professional team. I feel very lonely and feel very low. Didn't go to work today, said I wasn't feeling well. My ideal job would be working in a children's hospice - there are 2 jobs I could apply for. One where I live now & one near my family. I miss my family who live 250 miles away.
I love my partner but feel in a rut, his life revolves around AA which I understand is very important to him. But what about me? I suppose I'm feeling neglected to an extent. Time to talk methinks!
