I've been struggling for a while now, I don't sleep well and I have panic attacks.
I found life difficult even when I had 3 hours respite once a fortnight.
There is no respite now and I lost my volunteering spot cooking for stroke club when it closed down.
The jumble sales have been cancelled so I don't help with those either.
I made an appointment to see a counsellor but it wasn't successful. We sat at opposite ends of a large room and I struggled to hear what she was saying.
She suggested I made 12 appointments to visit her so I could grieve for the life I have lost.
I shall not be doing this, I need help with my hearing aids so I can make phone calls and I need some form of regular social interaction. Neither of these are currently available but I don't think spending £50 a week to grieve will help me.
The counsellor did send me a link to some group walks that I might like to attend. Unfortunately like everything else they have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
