Hi, I'm new to here. I've dealt with anxiety and depression for a while now but only recently coming to realize it and start to accept it. Over the last few months and even days it's gotten worse seemingly for no reason. It feels easier just to give up than go on.. One of the worst parts about it all is how unpredictable it is. Sometimes I feel totally fine and then it's like flipping a switch out of nowhere. I'm not on any medication and don't want to have to go down that route but am starting to wonder if that may help. I know friends who've been on antidepressants and it seems that that can sometimes make things much worse. I don't want to have to feel like i depend on medication to help me feel normal and can't get off it. I also don't want it to have adverse effects and make me feel worse than I already do.
