:welcome: to the forum.

You aren't messed up, you are unwell.

I'm sure that your wife and kids know that you are trying your best.

I'm sorry for the loss of your mother. It must still be really raw for you :hug1:

I'm glad you you feel you are ready to take the bull by it's horns but be careful about doing too much too soon.

What have you tried to help with your anxiety?

I think we can all feel a bit messed up sometimes but we are all here to support one another.

I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. This must be an extremely hard time for you indeed. I hope the forum is helpful for you and that you're finding your way round okay. :hug1:

It must be infuriating when you ask for help and you get nowhere. You just have to keep trying I guess.

Also, as Marlieebee said, don't try to take on too much at once. I can understand that you want to provide for your family but don't forget to be kind to yourself too. You sound like you're going through a lot with your mental health issues and suffering a loss on top of this is bound to take it's toll.

I wish you well.
