I kind of just wanted to share a little bit about my experience honestly and it helps to type out what I’m thinking.
So for the past three years I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and most recently depression.
I barely get out of my house because I have this strong fear something bad will happen to me, medically.
I don’t do the things I enjoyed like going to the movies, etc.
I also haven’t been able to drive on the highway for the past three years and most recently I haven’t been able to drive at all.
I just remember when things were so different. I use to be just an outgoing person. I could drive on the highway to and from college which was a 4 hour drive easily. I always partied and hung out with my friends, traveled the world without worry.
The difference in me is really effecting the people around me and also me mentally because I know I AM NOT THIS PERSON.
Does anyone else feel like that?
Does this last forever?
What helps besides medications?
