I was wondering for those who live alone what are you coping strategies.
I only have my Mum who is overseas and after sitting the resit my anxiety is getting worse .
I suffer from isolation and anxiety and realising that if I do not find a purpose it is most likely I will settle overseas
I have always aimed to requalify in Wills and Probate but unless I start passing the remaining exams and finding a years work experience there is no reason for me to stay alone and unhappy
Also I have had triggers, a contacted the Islamic Priest a day before my exam , he did not answer
My neighbour boasting that she will get married and buy a house
All of this reminded me of the aspects missing in my life .
I do charitable work and this refocuses the mind the help those worse off and this gives me real fulfilment but at times I become very lonely and alienated living in fear
Very kind and thoughtful wordsThank you
Roukaya, you say you have tried to speak to your priest, I do not know about your religion but mine is Evangelist. We have more than one person we can talk to. You say you do work for charity, I myself call people on the phone, recently I was asked to call a lady, I knew her and it was a nice catch up. I have made friends of the people I call, if they want to talk about themselves I let them. Sometimes it is hard because they are house bound or depressed. I can not ask them about outings etc., I am told I am making a difference, so I am happy with that. We hope this time of staying home, going no where will not be for much longer. Please message me if you need to, I have hurt my back, so I am not going out for more than a very short walk.
Good morning I hope you get better and thank you for your reply
People on here are kind and genuinely very supportive
Thank you and take care of your health
