I am new here. I have had issues with anxiety and depression most of my life but the last year has been the worst ever. My best friend committed suicide two days after my birthday last year. Oct 2nd will be a year since she passed. I am feeling the anxiety winding up now and have a few other things contributing to it. My dad's health is not so good, and he is the caretaker for my mom who has MS. He is not dealing with it well and it has really scared me. I am pretty sure I had a mild panic attack after seeing him this past weekend. On top of that I am preparing for surgery in October to correct an issue I have with my legs due to having a form of muscular dystrophy. I am trying to cope with all of this piling up but really feel as if I am drowning in all of this at times.
