Do I Feel Down Anymore?

Hello Everyone!
So this is a post I didn’t know if I would actually ever make as I wasn’t 100% on how to talk about it but I’m going to give it a go and if this goes live on my blog then I’m happy with this post.
As you are all aware I took a break from my blog, YouTube and social media account this year for just over a month or longer I’m not 100% but it felt like a long time. I needed this break for many reasons one being I had done my blog well over 2 years and honestly never had a proper break apart from the odd week or so where I didn’t get any posts onto my blog but apart from that I had never taken a break for many reasons like I knew I would feel guilty or upset but I knew I needed it never the less. I got to the point where I was fed up most days with a lack of motivation for anything. I was dragging myself into work every day because I knew I needed to do something productive. I wasn’t interested in how I looked but still kept some kind of appearance by wearing make-up still. I was just losing myself in all honesty – The best way I can describe it. I was a completely different person and I knew I needed to do something. I started to suffer from panic attacks and my anxiety was a lot worse than usual – I had no idea why this was happening or what was causing it. One day I was having a very low day even week maybe and I decided I needed to do something about it. I spoke to my Mum and told her exactly how I had been feeling for the past couple of months and we decided to try Holland & Barrett before I went to the doctors as in all honesty the doctors was the last place I wanted to go. I went in and told one of the ladies who worked there exactly how I was feeling and asked her if she could help me with anything – She came back with these two and a rescue remedy spray which I forgot to take a photo of (Reoccurring issue when it comes to blog pictures) but we will start with the Starflower oil with vitamin B6 which these are pretty much evening primrose capsules which are to help hormones, acne etc which the lady in Holland & Barrett said it could be hormones causing me issues which these would help balance them out which I take one of these a day. I then got given the 5-THP- Hydroxytryptophan tablets which these are for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, migraines etc as I wasn’t sleeping too great either and these help your brain to relax which I take one of these on a morning and one on a night time and I’ve never slept better. The rescue remedy is a spray which is what you use when you feel anxious, you just spray under your tongue and it helps ease you – This works a dream! All these things have helped me overcome how I was feeling I mean I still get my odd days where I don’t feel myself but it’s better than before. These have honestly helped me so much and I know deep down I still don’t know the reason I felt like I did and still may feel the same way but these are helping me get back to myself.
Have you ever tried anything from Holland & Barrett?
