I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and have been given antidepressants and vallium. The anxiety isn't work related, but related to my very ill daughter. I've been off work with a doctor's certificate since the beginning of term. Friends say that I should try to go back to a bit of 'normaility' and return to work part time as a distraction. My husband says I'm in no fit state to return to work. My daughter completely fills my thoughts every moment of the day, so how can I focus on work even I return for a short time each week? My daughter is in school, but her illness means that I have to be on constant alert in case of any relapses in her condition. I'm haing counselling and have had suicidal thought - selfish I know, but I've been in so much pain worrying about my daughter, but know I have to be strong for her to support her through her illness. I don't know whether I can manage going back to school at all, but I loved my job and I do miss it, but will I be able to do it again, when I'm constantly worrying about my daughter. Thank you in advance.
