I was bullied and harassed in the workplace and subsequently diagnosed with severe depression and anxiety.  I tried to fight through an employment tribunal, but was badly let down by the system.  I have never experienced not having hope... I have now and was about to do the unthinkable when my door bell rang... it was my son.  I am under a therapist and am being referred to psychiatric care after telling my GP what I had planned on doing... I am trying to get through the days but I feel completely worthless and still endure the nightmares of what happened to me.

Keep working with that therapist. Change rarely occurs overnight, especially when it involves the brain and its memories. A suggestion for you which has helped me: it is said that what we focus on becomes our reality. Nowhere is this more true than when dealing with our mental state. I, in the past, have had to literally force myself to smile into the mirror and think of something good. Scientific fact - if you smile and/or hug someone for twenty seconds, there is a profound change in the chemicals in your brain, the ones associated with feeling better. Please hang in there know we are thinking of you and hope for all the best for you

thank you for sharing - the key here is taking nibbles out of the situation. even though you probably dont feel like it, do try to incorporate small positive changes into your daily routine, whether that's phoning a friend for a chat, go ing for a walk in the beautiful autumn weather or whatever else you may feel like.

maybe even keep a diary of these little extra things you do so you can look back over your progress and know youre trying your best to change your situation. changing your current situation will give you the power to feel like youre making real progress and slowly but surely you'll be building a new you.

a few of your bricks have been knocked out of your wall, but we can definitely help to build them back up to be stronger than ever

dont feel alone either, as any time you fancy a chat, just email.

all the best.
