Anxiety and Depression Support

Need to talk, anxiety and depression taking over

I feel like I'm having a mid life crisis and my anxiety and depression are at the highest. I feel like a failure because I'm the breadwinner in my family of my husband and 16 year old son and now I'm losing it. I haven't gone to work in a week and feel like I'm going to lose my job I have worked so hard at for 10 years. My husband doesn't understand anxiety or depression so he doesn't understand why I can't just snap out of it. I just don't understand why I can't get it together and stop crying and being anxious.

I understand. Even when I think my anxiety is under control it is still there. Sometimes more powerful when silent. I feel that it has making me not want to do my work the way I should or do anything. I have 3 kids and I need to be available and active for them. Yet I have so much anxiety and feel it has gotten worse.

Hang in there I’ve been feeling the same way the past week and I’ve had to leave work early because of it

I feel you, it's so frustrating.

Others do not understand, even my kids have had enough of me.

I feel isolated, that's why I came on this site everyone understands what we're going through. I'm considering ending my relationship with my boyfriend of 16 years who keep pushing my buttons with his anxiety issues. I have enough of my own to deal with. He does not deal with his, he wants others to put up with it. Lots is on the line. Good Luck
