The loss of a loved one and grieving can cause mild depression. Using a diary can help you recover quicker.
I live on my own and have many lovely and caring friends, but even so I often find myself feeling lonely and tearful.
I have problems sleeping and often lie awake thinking very dark and scary thoughts.
Sports have always helped me to cope, but I am struggling with recent injuries that are taking long to heal.
I have also lost my job on two occasions and because things are so quiet at work at the moment, I am worried that it will happen again.
I am a young mother of a baby under two years. I have a full-time job as well.
At home I have to prepare supper, and breakfast and lunch every evening for the next day. I also have to prepare my baby’s food. I have all the washing and cleaning to do as well.
At work I am overloaded because a colleague went on medical leave and I have to do her job as well as my own.
My husband expects a clean house but does not help me, even with the baby. I have talked to him about giving up my job, but he does not want me to. He just says I am not the first woman who is going through this phase and I must cope.
In the past few weeks I have had the most unbearable backache, and I am falling behind with everything. What can I do to get back on top of things again?
