I've just been placed into Tier 4 lockdown so I'm not able to go out and about and do the things i want to to keep my head in check. Mixed with being off of work for most of this month due to having to use holiday up at work has meant i've had far too much time to think about how rubbish life seems right now. im okay, nothing thats putting me in danger, its just tough

Well in the meantime (and going forward), do other things to help support your mental health. What usually helps you?

Doubtful you're exaggerating. It's worth speaking to your GP about it, see what they can offer in the way of help.

That sounds like anxiety to me. Providing you're over 16 your parents don't need to get involved if you're worried about that

Yep. Just phone up and ask for one. It'll likely be a phone appointment, not face to face.

Well, if you're having panic attacks that regularly that's not great. Avoiding dealing with your mental health by minimising things will only prolong dealing with this. There's a reason why there are treatments available because it can be a "big deal."

Spoiler for exercise and weight related ******** and put downs

Most surgeries have some form of online booking now due to covid.
I get very anxious on the phone as well but unfortunately it is a part of adult life you will need so its better to start practising sooner rather than later.

spending time with friends and just going for walks. doing sudoku generally helps keep me calm too.

I think going back to work on Monday will help as it'll get me out the house (my job cant be done from home so i can go to the office)
Im always forgotten 🙁

Make sure you keep in contact with your friends, video calls, online gaming, etc. and keep going on daily walks. It's hard, but keeping up with things you knoe have a positive impact on your mood, even if done a little differently, can still make a good bit of difference. Take care.
