    Hello @Jayrob   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.

    I am one of the team of community champions who guide, advise and help new members who join the forum.

    Sorry to hear your not too good. I have mental health issues my self. Mainly anxiety and depression.

    Please can I ask have you spoken about how you are to your Doctor.?

    I know also finding the right support and advice to cope and deal with any issues you have.  I know every day is difficult and not easy a struggle to deal with.

    Please may I ask do you have any one supporting you with your issues?

    Please if you do not may I suggest this mental health charity I used before.  Something to consider.
