Outside; Stone Face, Inside; Screaming at the Top of my Lungs

I really, really, really want to scream. I just feel so overwhelmed even though all I've been doing is just sitting. I have no appetite to eat but I do have a nibble or two and at least one meal a day. Over the years I have learned to live with my anxiety but recently I have depression. It's new to me. Dealing with it. Learning to live with it. I'm on anti-depressants at the moment and I think that is a step forward. I also have a counsellor I talk to and I'm slowly progressing. But, I'm much slower at things before. Less productive... and I think this is getting to me. There are certain decisions to be made that I can't seem to make and the more I think about it, the worst I get.

I suppose I just wanted to tell someone. Get it off my chest.

Hello, I understand how you feel. I get overwhelmed too by little things and even when it seems to the outside world I have things in control. I go through times where I have to force myself to eat. I suffered depression my whole life but have developed some anxiety the past couple years. The anxiety is new to me. I couldn’t find anything to help for several years. No medicine was helping really. Finally got on a new med that is helping a little and hoping maybe increase in dosage will help more. I have a very hard time making even the smallest decisions and overwhelmed easily by bigger decisions. I’m here if you ever need someone to talk to.

Thank you so much for your reply! I’m sorry you’re going through it. I’m here as well and I’ve got quite a bit of experience with anxiety, and there are some things I’ve done that can help. Will message you, if that’s okay! X
