Hi I have recently had an episode of Panic/Anxiety which resulted in a trip to A and E for an ECG.....6 hours later came home with a mental breakdown diagnosis and some tablets. Its been concluded the breakdown has been due to the last 3 years of coping on my own as a single mum of 3 after marriage breakdown of 23 years, one of my children is ASD...and then the lockdown has just compounded everything..Really struggling with the anxiety side of things it's so debilitating..I'm off work at the moment..I'm a carer in a dementia care home..so that was pretty tough going through the lockdown..tho wevechs

I'm sorry to hear about what has been going on. In normal circumstances, sending you home with a diagnosis and tablets may be OK because of other help available but during lockdown, which was a causative factor, it does not seem good enough.

Hi Phil Glad you found the forum. Lots of people on here have kids and they know the struggles you are going through. As a Mother of 4 grown children with a divorcee I have been where you are. My kids are all independent now and I do not have to worry so much. So now I am really bored with out the kids at home with me. Enjoy every second with your kids and definitely make time for your self and do something you like to do. Big Hugs And WELCOME Jules
