Most of 2016 is a total blur to me. I spent most days in a foggy daze trying my best to just put one foot in-front of the other and make it through the day. I was completely exhausted and couldn’t manage anything more than work each day.
After suffering a breakdown in April 2016 and getting some great help from my doctors, I started getting treatment with medication. My GP also wanted me to see a psychiatrist she knew to be great with sleep issues but I just could not afford the costs and found the stress of trying to organise sessions and find money to be too overwhelming. Psychiatrist visits were put on the back-burner and I turned to some at-home methods.
