Anxiety and Depression Support

I’m exhausted

Woke up feeling okay, planned to go to church but then nothing I started to put some outfits on nothing satisfied me so I started feeling annoyed and angry and then my anxiety started to kick in so again I shut myself out again. I ended up staying home, feeling like I I given up on my self every day I ask myself what is there too look forward too? I have no motivation no excitement and I know the majority of this issue is because of myself and how my anxiety is standing in my way then i feel sad depressed because i have no life just hiding away. 😞

I can totally relate to this. I just want to stay in my room and no face the world, but once you go outside you can feel much better trust me.

Do you take any medication or receive help for your anxiety/depression?

No medications I went to my dr and they told me she wanted to put me on anti depressants but I don’t want the medications I do think 💭 I should go and see if support groups help me

Thank you for listening and supporting me yes the symptoms are sometimes are hard to cope with and at first I thought maybe I should get on medications but I’m just scared with all the side effects and how everyone now and days are getting addicted to medications I don’t want that for me as well. Thank you so much for the support

Yes me too! I hate side affects. Try looking at getting magnesium supplements or kalms tablets. They should help you out and dont really have side affects, or consult your doctor about it :) no problem, i wish you well

I have gone through what you are going through. I can say with help talking to people who care about you and prayer you are into praying really helps. I know how rough it is but I can tell you working through it there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Just make sure that you have someone to talk it's about what you're going through.

Another thing that helped me a lot go on YouTube look up TD Jakes dealing with anxiety man is it an eye opener and it helps a lot. There are a lot of his sermons or his motivational speeches just dealing with the mind and depression and trying to change your outlook on things that I listen to when I feel an anxiety attack about to come on or if I can't sleep I'll listen to one of his sermons and it helps me sleep.

I've also found through someone giving me advice on this site trying to do things that you love doing try to eat your favorite foods and just get out even when you don't feel like it. And like I said before talk to people. When you talk to people you will start to realize that you're not the only one going through issues. And it helps you feed off of one another. I understand where you're coming from with the prescriptions I don't take anyting. But I will tell you something that helps me calm down and just relax is marijuana. I've never used it until I started dealing with anxiety and I can tell you that it helps you just relax for that one or two hours and it really helps. Just a suggestion
