This week, we’d like to help a 28 year old woman who is struggling with mental health issues and feeling very scared and alone.
Meg's husband is in the army, and is away for long periods. She works part time and also has a young son.
Meg has suffered with anxiety for most of her life. But recently it has become more extreme. Last week, she had a severe panic attack at work and her mum had to come and take her to the doctor.
“She was stuttering, she couldn’t stop shaking, and she had been scratching at her skin until it bled. I hate seeing her like this. It’s heartbreaking,” her mum said.
Meg went to see a doctor, who believes she may be bi-polar, so he has referred her to see a mental health professional. But it has sent Meg into a spin.
“She went into panic mode. She thinks she’s a freak – she doesn’t want to feel like she’s weird or like there’s something wrong with her.”
Meg told me she has been feeling so low at times that she doesn’t think she even deserves to be here. With your help, we want to do something kind for Meg, and let her know that she is not alone.
