    Hi @nadinetisor. I'm sorry you're finding things difficult at the moment but taking it one day at a time sounds like a wise thing to do. Have you got any plans for the week? :)

    I have mental health issues myself. I use mental health charities.

    By accessing mental health charities. They do offer a lot of help and support. Give you a lot of information and ways to deal with any issues.

    I use coping methods and strategies.  Which I am often putting on this forum for the benefits of those having problems.

    This is something you have in place to deal with any issues and have a plan a way to cope.

    It is a daily problem dealing with every thing. Especially depression or anxiety and thoughts you have.

    I am glad to hear you taking each day small steps every day. I know this myself.
