hi lovely ladies, I've got to be honest I have been struggling lately. Things are no better with my daughter and I am really finding it difficult to cope in spite of accessing counselling support I have realised that I need to take some time off work. I spoke to my manager at work this morning and went home - I gave myself time to think and have made an appointment to see my GP next week. It is so important to listen to the alarm bells and accept how I feel as I am aware that if I ignore them and try to power through I will dip into a depression. Instead of feeling a failure and beating myself up as I did for years after PP I am proud that now I give myself permission to take care of myself and allow myself the time I need to heal. My job is supporting others and I feel that I need to practice what I preach.
I know I will get through this difficult time and I am going to be kind to myself. I appreciate and really respect everyone of you that may also be struggling and hope you can find some peace and comfort knowing that you are not alone XX
