Over the last 10 weeks I have lost my mum to a lung infection and my dad few days ago to having a double stroke. I’m have no support at home as my middle brother has learning issues and had to move in with me and my older brother and his family are o ly interested in the bank account.
I am struggling to keep my mind straight. I have suffered with acute depression for years and I know I’m spiralling downwards I to the dark again . I am planning to make an appointment with Dr’s on Monday.
I just don’t know how I’m going to cope at the moment.
