I'm Frankie. I'm new to this and I'm not quite sure how it works. I remember being depressed since I was 10 years old. With time, that turned into severe anxiety. I am now 49 and experiencing depression, anxiety, and panic. I am scared all the time. My mom passed away at the end of January, and I have not been able to recuperate from that. I've been seeing a therapist and I'm also medicated (Celexa & Xanax). I'm lethargic and lack energy and concentration most of the time. I needed to take a leave of absence because of all these overwhelming feelings. It is the dread and the paralyzing fear what affects me the most. And I cry non-stop. I wake up with palpitations.
I'm trying to find literature and strategies. Any suggestions?
