Tick - I am not over-reacting or looking for problems that aren't there
Tick - this is what I know those around me think
Tick- YOU should be proud of all you have been & continue to deal with
Tick- original post mentioned so many things that I have been 'struggling' with over the last few years and recognise,.
Tick- have been told by my GP that I am depressed
Tick- suffering from stress blah, blah, blah
Tick- ignoring or not listening to what I feel are my real issues
Tick- memory, language hesitation (verbal & written)
Tick- utter fatigue
lol- devoid of all fluffiness.
Tick- I feel nothing,
Tick- long conversations bore me,
Tick- little to no empathy
Tick- not simply an "attention seeker" (how I've been made to feel!?!)
Tick- found work more than challenging
Tick- ability to cope deteriorating
Tick- finally left
Tick- I am not the person I used to be
Tick- how do I explain this without sounding like a 'whining child looking for excuses?'
YAY! -Your post & this thread ... has helped at least one person.
Tick - I may just copy & take this with me
Well done for coming back, that's progress!
and took some effort I guess.
Hope you can find the energy to keep coming back.
NB - confrontation fear, social engagement incompetence - funnily enough this is better for me now than it was before! Go Figure!
