I was in an automobile accident 22 years ago. I was 26 and 8 months pregnant. I suffered an early delivery of my healthy daughter she has an older brother and sister. There are so many disturbing details of my depressive anxiety diagnosis! I do not have any issues with self medicating, NO ADDICTIONS! I have really been having a tough time lately as I am 49 and living with an 87 year old stranger (a man)! My mother, brother and (children) young adults, Son 32, Daughter 28 and Daughter 22, do not know HOW to help. They do not understand anxiety or depression! Unless one has experienced these disorders they haven't a clue. Up until about 5 years ago it was not as bad as it is now. I feel so helpless. I do not want to die but I do not know how to live.
I see a therapist and I am on anti- depressants and have been for all of these years! What else can I do? I am asking for any suggestions that can be useful to me in my circumstance.
My doctors say that this condition can be "managed" I am trying, hints would be GREATLY appreciated!
