    I gather you have been to see your GP and been put on a treatment  pathway, if not you need to make your appointment and explain your problems and needs

    It is very important you are able to get out of the house, or find a hobby, a diversion to take your mind of your Depression and Anxiety. Your feelings of doom also needs addressing, you need help and encouragement.

    Today I am stuck in the house my condition is sign posting a new flare up for Christmas, lucky me. I will try my Relaxation Techniques later on at tea break.

    Try looking for diversions you enjoy, even if it is only for short periods of time. You are using the web, is there anything on there you could try. I ike going on You Tube and watching old films and Victorian Life and times, the site is vast and the subjects etc is really good and interesting. I used to like going sea fishing and walking sad to say that is not now possible, so I watch You Tube and people doing the activities I used to enjoy. Just a suggestion


    Try Mindfulness Relaxation Technique that may help you control all the negativity you feel

    Hi Jojo - sorry to read you are suffering. I can totally relate to what you have written. My remedy (if you can call it that - it's really a distraction) is going to the library 3 or 4 days a week. I'm arty and am good at writing. One of the most pleasurable escapes in my life was writing a book about 1948 Sydney. All that research and discovery (fascinating) kept me occupied and at night i would lay in bed writing the next paragraph in my head. Snoring away very quickly. The effort of all this took me away from my troubles and, yes, the doom swirling in my head. If you have some hobby or artistic bent you could utilize, it might help.
