I have been dealing with anxiety and depression for years now. Several years ago I was diagnosed with Chronic Depression due to difficult situations I was facing and was on medication for it for 3 years. Now my life seems to be going really well. I have a great job, live in a great area, and am starting to make close friendships, and I have been off the medication for over 6 months. Yet lately I find myself wanting to cry a lot and stay in bed all day. It usually happens late and night and then in the morning right before I leave for work. I get myself moving and force myself to not call out of work like I used to in the past. I just have this overwhelming fear that something is going to go wrong and I need to stay in bed. I find myself wanting to get lost in television or reading so I don't have to think.
There is not really anything wrong or difficult going on in my life, so I don't understand why I am feeling this way again. I feel like there is a bolder in front of me and I don't know why. Can someone recommend what to do?View Thread
