A 48-year-old member asked:
Is it normal to feel that you don't know how to get back to work when you suffer under anxiety, depression and possible ptsd?

Not uncommon: Depression may lead to a drop in motivation, energy level & self- confidence.
Anxiety may lead one to question their work or decisions and make focus difficult. Ptsd can lead to sleep deprivation & sometimes discomfort being around others. So yes, this may make it difficult to get back to work. Take care.
