Feeling like I'm getting a cold with the weather changing.....

I am rarely medically Ill but just the last two days I have felt like I am starting to get a cold. I think it's due to the weather change as I am very good at washing my hands everyday. I am mostly medically I'll like gastroenteritis or other due to unfortunate and unexpected food poisoning or excess alcohol which is quite rare these days!!! I have been mentally well for a good few months now having increased my Sertraline to 100mg back then. I have got both kids at school now and lucky to have two days a week to do stuff. My kids school is really hot on the parents helping the children with their work and sometimes it's loads of extra effort. I really feel sorry for the kids today as modern life is just so hectic.

How is everyone with the change of season?

It's normally my time for deterioration but I am determined to keep myself strong and focussed on the present from here on in. Keep fingers crossed x

Hi Blackdog, change of seasons is always a time for the cold season to hit. I know how

difficult it is in handling physical ailments along with anxiety. With the weekend near, I hope you have the opportunity to have some "me time" and take care of yourself.

Feel better. Are the kids old enough to allow you to get some rest? xx

Absolutely the kids are just about x I have my family who will have them otherwise. I have had a good run of things lately too. I have been volunteering at the school and have probably picked up something from there! I am already in bed resting. Might cancel tomorrow's stuff as not important and just rest up. You always say the right things Agora1 you must be a counsellor or teacher or similar. You have such a good way with words. In fact it's because of what you said has prompted me to cancel tomorrow!! It's nice to be given a nudge in the right direction. I am going to rest!!!!

Still got the cold which is a bit annoying. I am a bit down today don't know why. Feeling tired and a bit on edge. It's exhausting raising a family. Hoping to get to sleep earlier tonight. Delegated the judo run to my other half as I have done it loads. I don't have enough energy to do all that tonight aswell. I feel guilty not doing it but know that I need space too. My god its peaceful in the house with everyone gone out. I don't need to deteriorate as this is normally the time of year that I get sick. Can't wait for Thursday to come round quickly enough so I can rest up and take 5. I hope to stay calm and relaxed and believe in myself to be strong mentally and emotionally.

Anybody else get down days that almost appear out of nowhere?
