    To be honest between everything else going on i have about as much support as i can get..i have outreach workers, IDVAs, the lot and im still failing miserably. Things are pretty rock bottom right now so the HV is coming in the morning but my anxiety is so out of control i dont think i can admit anything to her
    Sounds like a hell of a lot to deal with. :hugs: Do talk to your HV - they are there to help you and concealing things won't be good in the long run. You're not failing - I don't know the details of your situation at the moment but it sounds like you've got some serious difficulties, and are handling it as best you can. It's ok to need support with that!

    I was coming on to whinge that work are being useless about planning my return, annual leave entitlement etc, but that's nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    If you don't feel that you can talk to your HV could you talk to your GP? If your anxiety is out of control then there are medications that can be started (or changed if you are already on something). There will be options. One thing that I sometimes advice my patients if they are struggling to put in to words how they are feeling is for them to write it down before they come, this way I can have a look and get somewhere towards understanding what they need help with. I know taking that first step to ask for help is a big thing

    You aren't. I hope the session with the HV is helpful, but if you don't get what you need out of it don't hesitate to say so. It's a horrid place to be in at the moment, but there will be a way out to the light again.

    Thank you. Managed to get it all out to the HV who luckily is bloody amazing so she has fot me an urgent gp appointment for the morning and she is going to be there too. She said shes sort of been expecting it because in 4 months max has been in hospital 3 times, i have left an horrendously violent relationship and my mum has spent the last two weeks on life support in ICU. Raising my two with literally no support because the whole of his family have cut me and them off. Will get there but sure as hell is tough.

    Well done for talking to your HV. PND/PNA really sucks but recognising it and asking for help is a really good step in getting better. (That's really not meant to have sounded as patronising as it does reading back through it!!! It sounds like you've had a horrendous time of it recently but really hope that life will start getting a bit easier for you!)

    I'm part way through counselling now and finally starting to see a happier future and gaining more control of my anxiety (bit of CBT, bit of EMDR for PTSD). Long way to go still but seeing a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel now.

    Well done for getting out of the relationship, it must have been really scary but you've done the right thing. Stay strong and keep believing in yourself - this is the right thing for you and Chelsea and Max. So sorry that your mum is so ill too, I hope that she improves soon. And very pleased that your HV and GP are supportive.

    Thank you.

    Think the biggest worry on my mind right now is that i have managed to avoid social services opening a case so far by doing literally everything they have asked and i dont want this to be the thing that makes them get involved as i have worked far too hard to avoid it. I know ordinarily this wouldnt be something theu need to get involved with but cant help but feel the combination of everythinf is just too much!
