We all experience major changes in our lives but sometimes we may experience an event that impairs our ability to cope. Examples include a relationship breakdown, job loss or job stresses, changing careers, having a baby or moving cities or countries.

Changed appetite, eating patterns (including comfort eating)
Low or anxious mood
Struggling to make life decisions
Difficulty stopping self from thinking about the stressor
Development of negative thinking patterns
Being emotionally numb or excessively emotional
Having thoughts of wanting to run away from it all
