My difficulties are M.E., ADHD, Arthritis, Anxiety and depression.   Its an everyday uphill struggle being on my own.  Just working myself into a never ending spiral of cancelled commitments, untackled paperwork and keeping my head above water.  Can't keep all the plates spinning at once.  Not enough money to get the help I need.  HELP

    Welcome and you are not alone . I do empathise. Lists and realistic targets are helpful. I find breaking things down into small manageable steps really helps me to overcome anxiety. Like going to appointments. I get everything ready the night before so I am not rushing about or overwhelmed as much prior to the appointment. I set 3 alarms on my phone at half hour intervals to remind me to go through the steps of getting ready as I take ages to wake up. I always give myself extra time to get there as I cannot rush and I hate being late. I tend to use these things, depending on my mood and pain, as reasons to avoid or reschedule appointments. Being aware of this and putting steps into place really helps me feel more able to cope. It depends what your triggers are and what works for you. I hope this helps you. Talk more if you want.
