I alternate between anxiety and depression sometimes several times a day. I can relate to how you are feeling. I've been told that it's the fear of the anxiety that is what allows it to perpetuate. How you learn not to be afraid of feeling so bad I have no idea. I have a appointment with a new therapist tomorrow so I'm kind of nervous about that. I'm going to try and get some sleep now. Hopefully you can too. Take care.
I'm still here. Been feeling not very good lately. Depression still bad and anxiety is more of a problem right now. Dr. keeps changing my medication. Now I am taking paxil, seroquel, and klonopin. Extremely tired and just wonrdering when I'm ever going to feel better. Hope everyone else is ok.
The fact that you took the time to post in here shows you haven't given up completely. There must be some hope. Keep searching for more trials. Medical science is making new breakthroughs every day. Hang in there.
Is depression a big problem for you? If it is have you talked to anyone about it? I don't mean to dismiss you concerns but it sounds like you are going through the normal ups and downs of young adulthood. Be patient and don't be so hard on yourself. As far as your career choice do you have an older mentor type person you can talk to? Try contacting some of the journalists at you local newspaper. I'm sure they would be happy to talk to you. I'm not the best person to be giving advice, hopefully someone else here will have some insight. Good luck.
Hello. You have come to the right place if your looking for people that understand depression. You will find a lot of caring and supportive people here. Your story sounds a lot like mine. I am 45 and live with my parents. Made a lot of bad decisions in my life. Nothing real bad, like I've never been in jail or anything like that. Just a lot of bad career choices and a lot of fear holding me back. I am also going for therapy and taking meds. I am glad you have a therapist that you like. Hope things get better for you soon. Take care.
No big deal. The second one, fourth, and last one didn't work. I have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow to talk about making changes to my medication. I think I am going to put off therapy until I can get on the right combination of medications. JeffView Thread
