Thanks for your reply. It may be very beneficial having a chat to your Dr about how you are feeling. I am extremely fortunate to have a very supportive Dr. I don't know that I would be doing so well if I did not have his understanding and support.
This morning I was feeling so depressed and anxious I didn't want to get up. I kept telling myself how nice a lovely hot shower would be, then breakfast. I then made plans for how I would spend the day.
It helps me to have a rough plan for the day, or at least for the next thing I want to do or need to do.
Have you tried Cognitive Behaviour Therapy? You can Google it to see how it works if you haven't come across it.
There have been times where I have written over many pages thinking of all kinds of solutions and ideas that I might be able to out into practise, from the feasible to the down right stupid! Sometimes it helps.
Using CBT skills may help you to break down some of your fears. Think of one that is the least distressing and have a go at nutting out what it is that is really bothering you about it and how you could deal with it.
My depression and anxiety has been heightened lately so I am trying to accept that and cope when I am able to and try not to be too annoyed with myself when I am not coping so well.
Small steps is what it takes sometimes!
Wishing you well and hope you find your way around the forums okay.
Cheers from Dools
