To be honest I'm mostly having a bad day, the worst one for a while, and am just looking for support. I've had depression and low self esteem for a long time, and am having a rubbish day for no real reason.
I constantly have days (mostly moirnings) where I'm struggling to get anything done because I can't think clearly. And today I feel awful because for the last hour I haven't been able to do anything so am essentially being paid for nothing (I currently work from home). I don't have time to go to the doctors soon to get help as I have to attend events tomorrow and Friday, and am abroad for a work trip all next week which I can't get out of.
I quit a job of four years last November because I'd grown to hate it and it was making me miserable (I had enjoyed it before, loads). Then I made a crazy move to Germany for a new job in January - which was an exciting opportunity and a change was what I thought was needed. It didn't work out and I left at the end of April, and quickly found this new job. But now I feel like I can't really take the pressure anymore and everything is a struggle. Nothing's really panning out for me, even though the new job seems happy with me so far. I think I just hate myself really... which is frustrating to type.
I don't really know what to do. :-/ I just know that mentally, today is extremely tough and I've been sat here crying this morning. Does anyone had some advice on getting through work while depressed?
Sorry, just needed to air some stuff out.
