Tomorrow - well, today - I return to work after having been signed off for six weeks due to mental illness. I am positively vibrating with anxiety, I can't keep still and I can't quite fill my lungs. I'm in a state of total panic at the idea of returning. The depression is still a heavy weight on my chest, it feels like I'm carrying a rucksack full of rocks and woes with me everywhere.
The anxiety is horrendous, the depression heavy.
And yet, I am returning. Because, for me, it's now or never.
And I am determined to rise.🌞
