My name is Rosie and I have just joined this site, I am hoping to get some support, share experiences and maybe help each other.
I have been off work since September with anxiety and depression. A few factors triggered my low mood: including a very stressful job, Covid and family difficulties. I feel so low at times, it’s like what is the point. I am 56, single and live with my 25 year old daughter, my son is 21 and at University. They are my protective factors, I have had plenty of suicidal thoughts, no plans. I feel trapped as I could not do that to my kids or elderly parents. I try to help myself, but nothing is helping. Xmas day was very hard, they helped me with food etc, but it’s hard to put on a face. Anyway thank you for reading this, I wish you all well.

Thanks Sash, I really appreciate your comments. It can feel very lonely, friends try to help, but don’t quite understand how hard it is.

Hi Rosie, If it wasn’t for my Daughter son in law and 3 gorgeous grand kids I’d be long gone. I sometimes feel resentment towards them cos I gotta stay, but I know it’s only natural to feel & think these things. I hide my mh very well it’s just practice, today was Terrible for me I been unable to sleep Christmas Eve so felt really bad, I made out I feel weird like very tired n very hot, so I’m having a covid test tomorrow at my daughters. Things ya do eh?

That's why this is a good place to be, sometimes too it's easier to talk to strangers that feel the same as you, that won't judge and really do support you..
