    From last few months I have been having health issues, my family who are overseas are unwell and I don't know if I really want to do the job I am doing. I don't feel like working but I can't leave my job as I need to pay bills n mortgage. My work is very supportive and I have reached out to EAP but still don't know why I am feeling sooo lost. Don't know what to do, don't want to go out of the house. All I want is to escape n hide somewhere. I have a husband and a kid so it is practically not possible.

    I just feel something wrong will happen any minute. I feel very emotional and cry very often. I don't know what to do.

    Hey Hope18

    Hope you're ok.

    I read your post and can relate on so many levels. I also live with the feeling of impending doom. I want to crawl under a rock and stay there for a while.

    It's tough, but what's helping me is just taking things hour by hour. Things seem more manageable that way.

    Hope you have an 'okay' day

    Hi and thanks for sharing, I hope in some small way you can find a moment of comfort. Maybe prayer maybe deep breathing. These feelings are horrible to have but they will change and reduce. It's most unlikely anything bad will happen, it is just a bad thought and it has no real power in your life. Please keep posting because there are others online who are so much better at helping than I am. You and your family are in my prayers tonight. Peace to you and yours.
