I am new to this group ; However not to depression and anxiety .
I am a Mental Health Therapist , so I have to "wear a mask" alot of the time to be strong for others ..
Recently , my anxiety has gotten so bad that my panic attacks , have started in session with clients .
I see a doctor and take Xanax -as needed. However , I've been on it so long , it does not have the same effect anymore.
I am on anti -depressants. They don't work great .. However I've tried alot of them and these work the best.
I believe my friends are tired of hearing about my depression and anxiety .
I do see a therapist and it helps, just not enough .
So I wanted to join this group in hope of getting Some hope and comfort.
