    Hello @mummyOB   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    Sorry to hear this. You have come to the right place for support.

    Please have a look at our information, advice and posts on Mental Health issues which may be of use to you.

    Please can I ask are you getting any support for your mental health and how can the community best advise. Offer guidance and support.

     I have anxiety and depression.  I would consider looking on line for support and advice. Sometimes contacting a local mental health charity can be beneficial to your well being.

    I know I have done this many times.

    Wish you the best we are a friendly, supportive community.  Care and share..

    Please ask if we help and advise on anything. Some one will know.

    Please take care
