I feel a bit lost.

Today I accepted ill health retirement, for mental health reasons. Im only 23, well 24 tomorrow but yeah. I feel very relieved but also quite lost. The past 6-7 months have basically been me stressing about pip and work, and being extremely mentally unwell. And now pip and work have been sorted, Im just quite, well what do I do now. Theres not a whole lot I can do right now, still very ill. Im thinking focusing on the garden would be good (I bought two more acre trees today) but I really struggle to be outside. Doesnt help that today and yesterday havent been too bad. I think Im a bit worried Ill crash, and then everything will be much much worse again.

Sorry I just needed a moan.

Moan away. Are you seeing someone? Counsellor, mental health nurse, gp? I was on high dose anti depressants for a year. The gp then gradually reduced the dosage over the next 6 months. I feel for you but help is out there. I walked a lot in the fresh air and the exercise made me feel better. I had no particular worries but it hit me like a ton of bricks. I was always a "coper" but found even the most menial tasks were overwhelming. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Good luck in your recovery.

Try and focus on the positives.

You accepted that stopping work was the best thing for your health, that is a huge step. You have had a few good days, this might be the beginning of a great period for you.

Stopping work at a young age does leave you wondering how to fill your time. Gardening, even for short periods, is really good for you. Try to do something for yourself every day, even if it is just putting on lipstick.

I do understand you feeling a little lost. I retired at 28, rheumatoid arthritis, and it took me almost a year to accept I would not be working again. I helped one afternoon at our primary school. Volunteering, when you feel ready, can give you a purpose to leave the house, broaden your circle of friends and make you feel useful. As least, that is how it worked for me.

Please see this as the beginning of a great happy life. And as for moaning, consider it mandatory for good health!

Thank you. It feels so odd, meant to just be starting my working life, yet Im finished for the foreseeable future.

I dont own lipstick, so maybe Ill try a little bit of gardening each day. I think thats a good idea. Thank you
