I change bed sheets once a week. for my bed, I change twice a week because of application of cream due to eczema. pillows are brand new. I really can't think of anything else.
I will be seeing a skin specialist next month.

daughter is already busy with her daily workload & weekly tests. if I get her to plan revision schedule, I don't think she can finish her homework. I burst out in tears last night because I am very stressed.
although sec 3 is not a crucial year, failing will lead to her repeating. I don't want to push her so hard because hubby has a colleague whose son committed suicide due to stress.
Janet, dont think so much. Life in general is stressful and worrying too much makes it worse. Try going with the flow.
Perhaps you should try some mindfulness/ meditation/ practice. Because it is easy to say stop worrying but if only we could control our thoughts by a switch.

Constantly feeling tried after my teenager had a tonic clonic seizure when she was having a 1-to-1 consultation session with psychologist yesterday.

Yesterday afternoon, I had slept together with my girl (as she felt extremely tired and headache after an attack), and slept at 9pm at night.

This afternoon, took two 1 hour light nap, near where my girl is.

Now, I am still feeling restless, tired and sleepy. Am I mentally tired or depression?

Communicate – Take the time to communicate to your loved one. Reassure them that you understand that depression is a disorder and not a personal failing. Let them know you don’t think they are weak, and that you know they are not choosing to feel the way they do. If you’re having trouble reframing, imagine how you would react if your spouse had a broken leg. Healing takes time, and you can’t force it.
