Changing so many things in your life at the same time can be overwhelming. Many people are experiencing the same challenges as you. Sometimes it is helpful to share your experience or hear how someone else dealt with it.  Support groups can help with that. Think about whether you want a local group where you can speak to people face-to-face or prefer something online and anonymous. Find the group that is right for you.
