When I was 17 I entered my first proper relationship. I was with the person for over a year but I didn’t realise the effect the person was having on me. They were angry and abusive and they lashed out at me several times physically whilst he and his family would emotionally abuse me. In 2013 I was diagnosed with depression and social anxiety. Over the past few years I have had crippling panic attacks which have lead me to having to leave work early to recover. However it’s recently that this has affected my mental health the most.
I have struggled with my bills because of missing work due to depression and anxiety after work has worked me to the bone and left me exhausted and expected me to go in a day later after working 9 days doing 12 hour shifts. I eventually left that job due to them not being willing to make a reasonable adjustment. This lead me to working at McDonald’s but after a recent bought of sickness I have been left with crippling anxiety and depression and often don’t leave the house or my bed.
Because of this I have fallen behind on bills and I am struggling to live. As you can imagine worrying about money only makes things worse.
Even a small donation would help.
