Hello all, I’m not even sure if I have depression or anxiety yet, but I’m open to new friendships :)

welcome auntiekk17...what brought you to this site? do you have questions...

Thank you....I don’t trust myself and I want to do that. And I think not trusting myself causes anxiety and depression sometimes

what do you mean when you say your not trusting yourself..do you mean you doubt yourself about things?...can you give an example of what you mean so we can all understand a bit better...I am a little slow sometimes, but get there eventually.

I always doubt...even if it’s about what I should eat. I doubt the ability to take care of myself

okay, I think I understand a bit more...it could be anxiety or depression, ...have you ever talked to a therapist about how your feeling?....

I went to a counselor this past Saturday. I go back in two weeks

that's really great to hear, cause being here is a great tool in the tool box, but you gotta know which tools to use for what job, and once you have a handle on what may be going on with you, the sooner you can have the options on how to deal with it. And if you read some of the other's posts and comments it could possibly help you a great deal with understanding terms and conditions and how some of us have dealt in different ways to cope with them.

If I were u I’d go to a doctor and explain to them your symptoms. They can give u advice. Also, if u can’t afford meds I suggest u drink a lot of water and don’t eat junk food at all. Junk food causes anxiety and depression, especially high amounts of sugar and bread.

I also take medication for ocd and major depressive disorder. Doctors didn’t diagnose me properly but I have all the symptoms of both disorders. I also exercise regularly.

I didn't know that either, some valuable information. Thanks!

How do I contact the administrators? I tend to worry a lot about almost everything so I think I may have some anxiety

Hi, nice to meet you. Hopefully your counselling can help get a start on things for you. It's funny, I often think it's weird how I don't fully know my own body and mind when it's mine, it's me! It's really frustrating when things start to happen like thoughts and worries.

Contact should be on the website for the group I think. Remember a certain amount of anxiety and worry is part of being human I believe.
