Thank you; ) today is espicialy hard my body hurts I have a ulcer and I have to go to work and I just want to lay in bed I have no motivation. its days like this I dont know if I can go on like this forever I have bills to pay and im in debt. so I have no choice but to push threw it for my family. im a care giver so I take care of people all day long and then have to come home and take care of my family by the end of the day i have no patients left and then my family suffers. I have no choice but to keep working the job I have because I live in a small town that is all plants and production work and I tried to work one of those jobs and there all grave yard which took its tole on me and sent me into a complete manic phase and i almost lost my family and at tha ttime i was not diagnosed so I just thought I was having a mid life crisis. We moved here from a big city and have no family so that means no support. im just so lost all the time and my family is suffering from my deppresion and extream anxiety. Im scared that they wont hold on long enough for me to find the right meds which my therapist says only can fix so much the rest i have to fix.
thanks for your advice and sorry for the long story of venting
