Hi tigglypoo I sympathise with you I suffer with depression and copd but I know people who have very bad anxiety and I see them struggling with their feelings I'm sure you will have support from people on this site good luck xx


hi their your never on your own on this site there are many people that will make friends with you take care speak with you again kindest regards bigalan


I'm so sorry you are feeling bad. You say you are on medication and still feel depressed. You need to talk to your doctor about this. Maybe he will change your medication or dosage. Antidepressants should make you feel better. Give yourself a pat on the back for being able to work part-time. Since you live alone now, be sure to seek out family and friends for companionship. Being alone gives you too much time to think. Congratulations on your becoming a nanny. You have a lot to look forward to. Please do see your doctor. He is there to help you. New meds may be the answer
