Re: Mum

Step by step seems like a good start @j95. You're right, some of those things are beyond your ability to change. What are some of the ones you CAN change?

Re: Mum

hmmm...as to the meds, I'm thinking, like @ivory that it might be an idea to stay on them for a while, just because going off them might create a bunch of extra complications that wouldn't be ideal at the moment. Totally up to you, of course, though! Smiley Happy

Re: Mum

Yeah but what I meant was things are always going to be stressful, it's my life it's the way my life is, constant issues @letitgo if I decide to leave it because I have things going on then I never will do it.

Re: Mum

No that's ok @letitgo maybe things will never be ok for me, maybe that's just the way my life is supposed to be. Smiley Sad

Re: Mum

I'm not so sure about that @j95. You mentioned that you can change some of the things on that list. What are they, and how might you go about addressing them?

Re: Mum

@j95 while we can't change everything, we cannot control everything. We can make the most of of a situation, no matter how challenging and difficult it is. It's about taking baby steps, working on what you can.

Re: Mum

@j95 I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling right now, sounds really confronting having to deal with that news about your mum Smiley Sad I think taking things step by step is an awesome approach. Maybe somewhere in there you could include a bit of time to chill out and do something nice for yourself, even if it's just taking the dogs for a walk before bed.

Do you reckon that setting up that appointment with the psych might help you sort out some of the other stuff? Sometimes headspace centres also have other services, like financial advisors and things like that, if that could be helpful to you right now. 

Do you need support?
