I don't know how to stop myself

I have been feeling so low for such a long time, things were made worse when I spoke to my boss on Thursday and now I am signed off, I know I hadn't been doing my best at work but now I just feel completely rubbish.

I don't know what to do with myself and I really truely feel like I just want to stop everything. The only thing keeping me going is that my dog would be left on her own as the rest of my family are on holiday. So now I am utterly lost, no idea what to do, completely agitated and can't stop crying.

I have spoken to the Samaritans who were not much help and I an loosing hope by the minute. I even saw a gp this morning who wasn't my normal doctor and was useless.

aww, poor jo, please don't feel rubbish about being signed off. You've been given time off to get better so please concentrate on the fact that you will get better with time. Be good to yourself and try to do things you enjow doing. Do you have an appointment with your own doc or psych coming up? I know its not much use but I'm sending you a big hug anyway:grouphug:

Thank you unlucky.

I have an assesment with my psychiatrist next tuesday and my own doc is away at the moment so don't have anything lined up with her right now. I am trying as much as I can to stay focused but it's not working all that well. I think at the moment my dog is saving me so I should be grateful to her for being here. If it wasn't for the fact she'd be left alone I dread to think of the outcome.

Thank you very much for the hug.

Well, thank god for your dog dolly xx As I said please try to be good to yourself, I know it sounds silly but try to think of your time of work as a holiday and pamper yourself. Hopefully things will get a bit more sorted on Tuesday.

What's your update? I hope you are feeling better. Do you have a regular talk therapist who can help you deal with these emotions? That'd be a great step to take for your recovery. And it's doubtful you have any motivation to, but exercising, even light walking, raises those endorphins and brings you out of your muck. You will get past this. Just remember above those clouds the sun is still shining. Also don't beat up on yourself for getting your best work done at work. Your sick with depression and I hope you can share that with your boss, you might be surprised what he says back.

Take care,

Clayton
