Caring for someone with severe debilitating depression for several years.
I became depressed, frustrated, crying alone- lockdown didn’t help!
Eventually went to GP, prescribed medication and contact Inclusion.
Inclusion contacted and provided counselling support.
As a result I spoke for the first time openly about my feelings about my situation.
While my caring situation hasn’t changed and recognise it won’t in the short term I can face it in a more positive way.
I am now in a period of reflection on what further support I may require going forward
