Hello

Hi, I am new to this site. I'm looking for some help on how to deal with my anxiety, panic, and depression disorders. About a year ago I got fired in front of my peers from a job I had since 1997. I did nothing wrong other than standing up for myself. I still don't have a job. I have been working to improve myself but these disorders have stopped me dead in my tracks.

I’ve been there. I’ve lost jobs due to anxiety and not being able to leave house. Sounds like a horrible situation but at least you are here for help. Keep your head up, work on yourself anyway you can.

I just don't know what to do? I have been doing everything everyone has of me. I'm going to the doctor, trying to find a new career, trying to figure what I am to do. I'm scared. Some weeks are good but then the last 3 days I just feel like I can't do anything right for anyone. I feel like the world wouldn't care if I was gone. I fight it so much! I don't understand why this is happening to me? I was never like this before. Did I do something wrong.?

Wow-I seriously could have written that word for word 20 years ago. Hell, some days I still feel like that. Some days, weeks and years are worse than others. In my case I can look back and say I closed myself off, I would tell my parents and family “I am trying”, you know what my trying was? Sitting in my apartment in front of TV or in bed. Long story short-forced myself to go outside and walk for 30 min a day. I at first went to a park that was empty, I would journal in my head, unfortunately it wasn’t all positive at first. I made a playlist of songs that were upbeat and mostly 80’s pop😂. Slowly it got better. Instead of thinking how crappy everything is at the moment, say positive things to yourself. (❤️this too shall pass). Remember- change is possible, not easy- but you CAN do it. Some one is going to need you one day.
