Hi all, never posted anything like this before. I have been a mechanic for around 5 years now I am 26. I lost my dad around 18 months ago and struggled like hell with depression. I have changed job 4 times since and managed to get by but recently I am finding the stress unbearable and I am making mistakes at work.

I am terrified I will lose my partner even though she says she will support me no matter what, I feel so guilty because she works hard everyday and I feel useless and that she deserves better.
