From anxiety to depression

So I spent all day super anxious about getting re signed off by the doctor. Waited in all day for the call, she signed me off for a further 6 full weeks, longer than I thought. This should help my anxiety as I don't have to spend each fortnight worrying about renewing it.

In stead I've just slumped into a deep depression about actually being that ill, not aided by being kept awake all night with the severest yet nerve pain running up and down my limbs.

So tired I keep forgetting if I've taken pain medication which is not helping as then I get too anxious about over dosing to actually take any.

Finding today very difficult indeed

I understand these thoughts. When I was signed off I was the same. You must try to rest and help your body and mind. Your doctor signed you off as she knows you need it.

So important for your anxiety to get a good night sleep but so difficult in your position. Wish I could help but I can't beat my insomnia at the moment.

As for the medication could you just put your usual dose in a container/lid/pill box container and then if it's empty at least you know you've taken it.

Sorry I can't be of anymore help.

Take care

Thanks Jamie. It's just reassuring sometimes to know you're not alone.
