I have been waiting for Surgery which should have been done 2 years ago and has been cancelled 6 times.... it.s Vascular Surgery and until this is done I cannot even approach the Surgeon who has to operate on both hips. I’m in pain most if the time with OA in both hips. It’s getting to a point where I struggle to get up and down the steps (7) outside my flat... even to try a short walk which would improve my quality of life... I am 81. My children live in the North of England and I’m in the South. Obviously I can’t see them given the current situation although we do talk on the phone. I don’t want to worry them but it’s hard to to say anything. I get very down .....
I feel really anxious most of the time , cant switch off and relax .
So sad to hear of your anxiety. I am in a bad place and would be happy to receive email if you need to talk.
So sorry to hear that you're having a difficult time at the moment, this is an extremely stressful time and I know that a lot of people are dealing with anxiety at the moment. If you're not able to access your usual GP service at the moment, I would really recommend contacting the helpline for one of the following mental health charities, who may be able to help:
Anxiety UK: https://www.anxietyuk.org.uk/
There are also some online resources from SANE, sadly their telephone helpline isn’t currently operating: http://www.sane.org.uk/what_we_do/support/
And also online resources from Rethink: https://www.rethink.org/
I do hope this is helpful.
All the best,
hello. i am suffering with aniexy being self isolated and fear all time of the worse. i do my essentials like making something to eat and having a bath and even doing yoga in house but i get a depressing feeling even when i wake up. can anyone help me?
Hi, I have complex health issues from a brain tumour removal and am having issues with my care providers treating my physical health issues seriously (they mis diagnosed my brain tumour as a.stress band headache) as they put everything down to mental health as I have gad and depression. I have had deteriation of my arms and fatigue for 2 years and they will not send me to pain management or run any tests to help diagnose what I think is fibromyalgia or cronic fatigue. Working for a mental health charity I have had to be proactive and fight so hard and self diagnose but am still struggling for proper support. A person with physical issues with dementia would have BOTH their mh and ph supported but why people like me with both and probably neurological disabilities cannot get the services to work together to help me live some kind of purposeful life is beyond me.
