A year gone December I felt the scales tipping the wrong way. I'm at rock bottom and recognised that I couldn't continue this way. Luckily the gp I saw has been active in my care for a lot of years and understanding. Dealing with a sick family including elderly mum is taking its toll, throw in an ongoing divorce, hating my job and failing in many other areas due to brain fog because of constant full body joint pain and celiac and heart issues (both newish issues to deal with. I've succumbed and excepted medication, a newer version of citalopram which I used to be on some years ago.
This morning I'm headachy and nauseous.
Was offered a sick note but said no as my employer doesn't offer sick pay and my finances are in a mess.
I handed in the request for counselling and not sure how long this will take. I tried talking changes a couple of months ago and started a hobby and joined a church but I didn't like the narrowness of the support which was via telephone
Right now I'm not confident things will change, this has constantly raised its ugly head for most of my life since my early teens, I'm now 60. ...... One step at a time I guess 😕
