I often wake up feeling down, the house is a tip again. Why can’t they all tidy up after themselves? But im so down I can’t motivate myself to do any tidying so I’m living in the mess. We are always skint, we work to pay the bills. What is the point in this life? Can I leave? Should we move to another country? Maybe my children would be better off without me.
What the hell am I thinking of course they wouldn’t, pull yourself together. And then the thoughts start all over again. I try talking to a few friends but what can they do to help? They all have their own lives and their own problems to face. Snap yourself out of it, you are so lucky – i have a husband and 3 children and a great family and great friends. But what is the point when life is this shit. wait you only live once – enjoy life, go out for the day. Where – were skint?
We go to the park – the children fallout, i feel shit again.
And round and round it goes!!
If you are feeling like this, there is help out there!
If you haven’t already been to the doctor then make an appointment and ask what they can do to help. Sertraline has been the biggest help for me and I have also had Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT).
But I still think the best thing to do is talk to your family and friends, don’t feel ashamed as you have nothing to be ashamed of. We are stronger together! There is so much support around now, as Mental Health has come to the forefront of society. But even with all the support I know how you can still feel isolated from the rest of the world.
I am always here to listen to anyone who needs it. Either comment on my blog or contact me through the contact page.
