I am new to Anxiety and Depression Support. I am retired and I have lived outside of the U.S. for the last seven years. It is a fairly small town and medal attention as far as psychiatrists and psychologists is pretty much nonexistent. It is necessary to travel six hours to the capital city.
I have been in a downward spiral the the last three months. I have been on the same antdepression medication for the last five years and I do not know if it is the medication that needs to be changed or that I just have never been happy in this environment. There is not a lot to do and that feeds the depression. I have no motivation to exercise and that also feeds the thoughts of lack of self worth and hopelessness. Wherever I have lived, it is always the same story...depression follows me wherever I go.
