Re: September Blues

Re: What reasonable adjustments at work for mental health help you?

Hi, I think this is a great idea and needs to start being part of all workplaces. My thoughts and ideas probably cover most of what you have said already. Flexibility is a big one for me, having the opportunity to alter start and finish times especially if really struggling. Personal space in the wo...

Re: No services will help me, I need advice.

My heart goes out to you. Its just not acceptable when you are reaching out for help and getting nowhere. Imagine if it was a problem with your heart...the gp or consultant wouldnt say oh we cant treat you! I too have had to fight hard for help and support. Have you considered changing your GP, the ...

Re: this is unbearable, how do you all cope?

My anxiety has certainly ramped right back up...currently sat in car trying to psyche myself up to go and do the weekly shop. Im churning, panicking, scared stiff that these feelings are still controlling me....been on sick now for 2.5 years, taking full whack strength meds and yet still crippled by...

Re: please tell me this will end

Im desperate to come off my meds mainly coz Im one of the unlucky ones that suffers with excessive sweating and the only way to stop it is to come off my ant...

Re: please tell me this will end
