    Okay, there's no easy fix. You have come to the end of your tether, nothings going right, however hard you try something else comes along to knock you back.

    I recognise this, I've faced this, then I had a breakdown.

    Life is getting harder, for most of us, your not alone. You have to try to control your fears, but first you Must get your pain under control. When we are in pain constantly battling it we have little energy to fight anything else.Go to your GP and explain in detail, or write down on paper and give to your GP. Once your pain has eased you then need to go to the CAB. They help hundreds of people a day and can help you to get your finances under control.

      Hi Donna you are going through the mill and I am sorry you are in such a state.  I think though that counselling is the way to go.  Ad's are only ever a stop gap treatment to help you to feel better until you can start therapy.

      Of course your depression is going to be worse when you are suffering such physical pain,  it's bad enough to have this let alone back problems on top of it.  You are feeling overwhelmed by it all which I totally get. 

      Counselling might never stop your depression,  but it can make it a lot easier to deal with.  And you never know with the right kind of therapy you might be able come out of it completely.  It's not a quick process and it might take you a long time to start feeling better,  but at least you will have the hope there and this is what you need - hope.  Such a small word but with huge connoctations.   Take care x

      Sandie make a plan of action.  Tomorrow ring up and put in a claim for JSA.  For the number look under the Gov UK site.  (if you are in the UK of course).  Make a decision that tomorrow you will work out a budget and that you will be looking in the papers etc. for a new job.

      If you are not feeling fit enough to work then go and see your doctor tomorrow. 

      You need to be fresh in the morning to start all this,  but the point of making a plan is that you stand more chance of being able to sleep knowing what you will be doing tomorrow. 

      This always helps me when I am feeling like this.  There is nothing you can do about it this evening so try and relax as much as possible.  x

      You have done enough for the first day and you can't do anything else now.  Do the rest tomorrow.  Go for a long walk or something or go and see a friend.   You can still job search online later on today if you want to,  x

    Donna, I really do understand, I have just been terminated on medical grounds (fractured spine, fibromyalgia, severe osteoporosis & osteonecrosis) and I also have developed depression and anxiety through all the above

    It's a scary position to be in but the way I have had to look at it is that I should not stress over something that I cannot personally change, you have to get through it the best you can and pick out people's advice where it fits/helps.

    Life is changing for you for sure and it may be that it's upsetting but your Heath is top priority.

    Take care
