Is there any hope left?

I'm not supposed to be the one to worry. My family is financially stable, my parents are happily married and healthy. I have a boyfriend who loves me very much and friends who care about me to end.

I still feel like I'm drowning everyday. Whenever my family or friends tell me how much I mean to them, I'm convinced they're out to hurt me. There's a constant pain in my chest that spreads to my body and I have an anxiety attack all over again. Is this all in my head? I'm scared to go into therapy. Please give me your opinions.

agreed....some times we just need a professional to guide us and help us understand that which we just cannot do on our own.

Anxiety can do that to us - constant worry when logically you know there’s nothing to worry about. Try not to be afraid of therapy! I was afraid my first few times around because I didn’t want to be judged by anyone for needing help, but therapy helped me so much later when I really applied myself. Sometimes it takes a little while to find a therapist you work well with, and that’s ok too. I hope you’re feeling better soon.

Therapy is a huge help! It’s not uncommon for people to go at all

Why not go to therapy? Sounds like you have a great life!

Also, I hope you are not "drowning" in social media and cell phone use- the increase of that has been correlated to up to a sixty per cent rise in depression and anxiety!

Hi! That’s wonderful that you recognize you have all these good things in your life. I would recommend psychologist (ph.d) for thearapy and a psychiatrist for meds. Then you can learn to enjoy your reality. Best wishes

Hi PessiOpti,

I just wanted to let you know that it is an absolute fact that your fears are totally made up. Please try to believe in your family!

Be well, Hon.😙

My goodness how relatable this is. It's as if, just because we've got good lives we aren't allowed to be depressed, and people don't get it when we are! And when they tell us we're safe, how is that supposed to help if my brain goes to every possible situation and turns itself upside down with worry? hugs! we can do this!
