I'm supposed to be going going to work today but thinking of all the things in-between, like having to go to the shop for cleaning supplies (for work), parking up this narrow driveway, I need to pick up my meds as I have ran out. I'm due post tomorrow but have work again and worried that my neighbours are getting annoyed at me because I always seem to be out when I get parcels. Is this anxiety and how do I get out of the house lol. It's overwhelming and I just want to hide in bed or some help

Hi Hoghedge74, it sounds like you are struggling with everything at the moment. I don't know what it would be diagnosed as, but i will post a link in a moment for a short depression and anxiety self-test from the NHS website. It is really helpful in pinpointed what might be wrong so you can take steps to get yourself coping again.

I am sure your neighbours don't mind, and if they do, they would not answer their door to the delivery person or refuse to take the parcel in.

You are working and so people will understand.

Have you seen your GP about this?
Are you eating well, getting a bit of exercise each day?

It is possible you are low on vitamins or iron, so you could either have that checked (when we can have blood tests again) or you can try to eat a better diet. I take multivitamins and fish oils because oily fish (mackerel) is important for mental health i think. My vitamins have Vitamin D which is useful this time of year when there is less sunlight.

I highly recommend that you get some sunlight before lunchtime, and a bit of a walk to help you feel better, it really does work.

There are lots of things you can do to help yourself
  • Make time for yourself, relax and do things you enjoy
  • Eat healthily; get plenty of sleep and exercise
  • Spend time with people you love
  • Talk about your problems with people you trust
  • Be proud of what you’re good at, as well as aware of what you struggle with
  • Pay attention to what you’re feeling.
If you’ve stopped doing things you usually love, you’re tearful, not eating or sleeping properly, drifting from people close to you, taking alcohol or drugs to cope or self-harming, then talk to us, or someone you trust.

You could try using the slogans “First Things First” and “Easy Does It” in approaching all the tasks in your busy schedule.
