Hi everyone .
Although i excell in my workplace i struggle so hard with leaving my house when off shift . Ive had experienced both tragedy and joy in my life but i can never overcome the spectre of depression and anxiety . I have been on medication for it for many years and some days and weeks are better than others but my motivation to leave my house to take a walk , visit family etc has just got worse . Sorry for the moan. I love my family and my job and they are blessings in the dark days

Welcome Ruby

You can moan :) I see you have a kitty there too, i am sure she is a good listener.

Can you start small, like walking for one minute in one direction and then walking home.

Hi Tawny

Thank you for replying . My big boy in the photo has helped me alot with cuddles bless him . I think you're right small steps first then try and progress . Its just so frustrating that i can cope so well within my work place but seem so useless at home to motivate myself . I seem to hide away and have got so used to it. Ruby

Hi Jessisme
It feels like it but i carry on regardless . I need to readjust my thinking to motivate me to go outdoors when off work . It seems so daft that i dont go out to visit family whom i love dearly and its hard to put into works why i dont but i hope with positive thinking and support from groups such as this i can eventually achieve a balanced life and enjoy it in many more ways . Thank you for replying . Ruby
