    Just one foot in front of the other when the days are dark. It will get better with time and help from your therapist. You deserve to be living, breathing and happy

    Thanks for your kind words I'm on my phone and have no idea how to do multiple quotes. I see my therapist next week. I had to collect some paperwork from him on Friday and really wanted to tell him how much I was falling apart I just couldn't bring myself to say anything.
    If dd has a nap I will have an afternoon nap too which helps but I still struggle to get through each day.
    I'm just so irritabble and angry at the minute and I don't know how to process it.

    How old is your DD? This is just a random thought, but if she's not in daycare yet, would it be an idea to start her maybe 1 day a week to get a break?
    As a sole parent, I have been struggling massively in the first year DS was born. I never got a break and the exhaustion made my depression and anxiety so much worse. I struggled with guilt when deciding to put DS in daycare for 1 day a week.
    Yet he liked it more than I thought he would, so the guilt disappeared and I finally got to catch up on some much needed sleep.
    When we changed carers, I decided to put him 1 extra day in care. Now I have 1 day to do the cleaning, shopping and run errands, and I have 1 day just for me to relax. I do still have a nap when DS has a nap as well.
    It has reduced my anxiety and depression, quite significantly. I am now seeing a counselor again and she has helped me to even further reduce my depression.

    I really suggest you try to create a little bit of "me" time. Have a relaxing bath, have lunch with a friend, go for a walk on the beach, etc.

    These are just simple suggestions and it is up to you to decide to take them on board or not.

    Goodluck. I hope things will get better in time
