Struggle with anxiety and depression

Hello. I have been struggling with depression anxiety for as long as I can remember. About 2 years ago, I started actively addressing my mental health and in September found an NP and a medication that really works for me. However, a handful of days out of most months, I still suffer from the severe urge to isolate, nonstop crying, and this feeling that the weight of my life is too much for me to handle. Does anyone experience something similar and, if so, how do you cope with it?

those urges you say you get yet indicators of depression and mean you need to do more work with your doctors to find the best dosage or medications that will help counter more of the symptoms of the depression you are suffering. your medications ought to work the same way every day you take em- not work only some days of the week or month.

sorrow and isolation are especially serious symptoms of depression so i would ask you run straight to your doctor for help, without delay.


Thank you for the reply. It's good to know that this isn't normal for me to experience. I will make an appt to talk with my doctor about it.


I agree with kobojunkie. Please report what you've said here about your symptoms to your doctor asap.
