Hello everyone,
I am in the process of moving away with my family, and this move being out the area . I am really struggling with the change. I have become isolated, loss of appetite and generally not wanting to leave my house on a daily basis . Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make myself feel a little more at ease and if anyone has any stories of when they moved especially out of area and how they dealt with the change and getting to know new people and that may help me a little .

Hello London,

I'm sorry you waited so long for any support.

Are you moving out of the city? Moving anywhere, a big change like that, can be difficult. It takes a bit of time to settle into a new routine, sleep well again and get to know our new area.

it is quite exciting though, new bus or train journeys and new leisure places to go. Due to covid, it is not as easy but finding where places are like the pool, supermarket, park, is a good start. For me, it is the nearest coffee place!

Eventually you might see notice boards in the library or supermarket, telling you what is going on in the area. You might have a free local mag coming through your letterbox telling you what is going on in the area too.

You can go on the website of the new place you live in a see what is going on. A visit x town sort of site. Tourism sites.

I might be facing similar thing and I'm so stressed and depressed. Who knows if it's because of the moving or just regular me though :redface: But seriously, how do I not have an emotional breakdown?

Yeah, I have had a few breakdowns because of it as I am not sure of how it will be moving to a completely new area. It’s such a big change and my anxiety seems to be heightened with big changes. I constantly wake up in the mornings feeling nauseous as my mind constantly thinks about the move

I'm not even going to a new area. To an old one that I know pretty well.. :( But I'll no longer will be living alone. If I cry I'll have to keep quiet. If I'm upset I have to pretend to be okay. If I go to the hospital I'll have to lie about where I stay..

You family will still be around and still support you. Growing up is daunting for somebody. Moving with family is good, my mum moved 5 times over 13 years. We moved with her, some areas were better than others, but it all worked out in the end of us. Well partially.

Music therapy helps me. I listen to good, uplifting and encouraging music on youtube. Listening to good music can make you think and feel better. Listen to it daily or as you need to.

Also, do what you love to do or do what you are good at. Is it cooking, baking, gardening, arts and crafts, writing and many others. It will make you happy and fulfilled.
