    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    There are people who who love you and would miss you so don't think like that. What about your daughter? Have you given any more thoughts about moving in with yo Mum. I completely get what you are saying but in your Mum's defence she is doing it because she cares. I am one of those mothers too...

    Discussion & help on depression & mental health related issues

    I'm so sorry. Two years ago I sat with my Dad and brother in the Royal for almost twenty seven hours watching my Mum breathe her last. She had been ill for many months. My dad held her hand and for both my brother and I, it was an honour for us to watch the gentleness and tenderness as their 57...

    I've just done a 2 day mental health first aid course over 2 days run by the TUC and Mental Health England. It was without doubt one of the best things I've ever done. I got so much out of it. It dealt with serious relevant issues. It was hard but not depressing. Keep trying to get on it if it...

    Get some independent advice - try citizens advice. £240 a month sounds like an awful lot for a £2000 loan. Speak to the lender - although if they have sold on the debt then this may be pointless. There's a lso a charity called Stepchange who may be able to help.

    I've just thought of something else. Your employer could be in breach of the working time regulations. Have you ever signed an opt out. If you haven't then you should not be working more than a 48 hour week averaged out over a 17 week period. I can't possibly agree with the advice given that...

    Sorry to hear this. Can't really say anything other than I'm rooting for you. Could you talk to somebody like McMillan or Marie Curie who might be able to tell you what's out there and available for you. Hugs x

    I don't know - depends on the union and sometimes even the branch within the union. I've represented members who have just joined before - our branch does not have a policy that prevents us doing so. HR were really arsey about it, querying if we were allowed to do it. Most places allow you to...

    Are you a Union member?If you are not join one. Usdaw are the retail workers union and are pretty good in my limited experience of meeting their reps at events like Regional TUC meetings. They seem to actually care about their members. Morrisons recognise Usdaw so it should not be a problem...
