Hi amber2612,

It sucks, it really does. Do you have some support in your immediate surrounding? Someone you can rely on to help you with the kids, as I've seen you wrote you're a single mom. Or even just to talk a bit? It means a lot to have people who know us and love us around when going through tough times.

Do not lose hope, things can and will get better. Focus on the things you can do for yourself, while waiting for those appointments. If they suggested to cut back on caffeine, do so. Try to do what you can, and do not feel bad about the things that you cannot do. You will be ok.

Wish you all the best,

A.

Sorry to hear that amber, that you lost that one person who cared for you and your kids. We are lucky, though, if we did have someone like that in our life, who gave us love and appreciation. When you feel completely overwhelmed by all this, try to think of that support you were given by your grandma. Even though you must feel a lot of sadness about that loss, think of all the good things that she did for you. You were loved for who you are, and that means a world, even though it hurts.

As for other things, such as panic attacks at work, perhaps you can try to take more small breaks during the working hours. You said that you do not eat well, so perhaps you can plan to eat at least five times a day, taking smaller portions. Keeping track of meal times will perhaps remind you to take more breaks. Taking care of your physical health rn is just as important as taking care of your mental health. Reach out for help where you can - it can be just talking to someone, saying out loud how you feel. Sometimes people may be more understanding than we initially think they would be.
