Trying to find me

Hi my name is Laura and I am new to this site. I am suffering from depression and anxiety. I am a newlywed. My husband has been extremely supportive of my journey towards trying to find myself again but my family has not really been receptive to my attempts towards trying to get them to understand what's going on in my head. I have nightmares or active dreams every night that make me feel like I ran a marathon in my sleep when I wake up in the morning. I have difficulty making simple decisions like what to eat for dinner which causes me more anxiety. My father was diagnosed with early onset dementia about 10 years ago. He was my rock the only person that i felt understood me the most in my family. I live in daily fear that one day I will end up the same way which makes it very difficult for me to be excited and positive for the future. I am hoping that I will be able to one day fill the hole that I feel is in my soul that maybe one day I will find my purpose find something inside myself that will drive me to continue to put one foot in front of the other. Thanks for reading...

I truly hope you find the happiness in life you are looking for. I’m glad you have a support system so close to you in your new spouse, having someone to talk to is very important. Just having someone to listen to you can make all the difference in a day🙂
