when everything is too much to cope with..I just want to leave

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am so depressed now that I just want to leave and not look back..I can't though as my family wouldn't cope for many reasons. .I have 2 older boys with asd, adhd and learning disabilities and a grown up girl withh a serious medical condition,  a strained marriage, grand children living at home,  bad debt problems. .I no longer want to receive post, telephone calls, and not necessarily because of debt but because I just can't deal with it. ..another appointment,  another form to fill in..infact I just want to hide away from the world and things are just crumbling all the time im like this,  I know this but I don't know what to do

    Hi Nina, it's p a pretty daft question but are you receiving any help from anyone? I know things can sometimes seem too much and it's really hard to get up and face another day! I think you should speak to your GP, not only for your depression but to if there is any help that can be offered to lessen the stress on you, take care and remember that you are important too xx

    I can relate to wanting to switch off from the world and don't have half the problems you have. It makes me feel so guilty. I don't need to work, no financial problems, a supportive husband who accepts that from time to time I do absolutely nothing. I get up at lunchtime, don't bother getting dressed, don't answer the phone or door and just watch tv 24/7. The rest of the time I'm 'normal' and quite happy with my life. Like the others have said, you need to talk to your GP and explain all your difficulties and problems. Medication maybe the answer to get you into a better frame of mind, so you can see about help with kids and time out for you. He may suggest counselling, although at the moment that would be an added worry for you and yet another appointment. Start with you're GP and hopefully with meds you may be in a better position to see who some of your worries could be helped. Good luck.

    Our three sons have had severe mental health problems for the last 16 y all three live at home and ALWAYS will... they are lovely lads but at times

    The strain can be unimaginable, suicide watch... despair... anger... loss Of hope ect .... they can be heart breaking to think of... we take them everywhere with us all of the time... we are very lucky in that we have
