After a long battle with depression and anxiety.i finally feel like my old self again.alot of cbt bending my familys ears, writing down how i feel.letting my feelings out instead of holding them in.ie causing anger,frustation,sadness.fear of nearly everything.wondering if people liked me or not.I said to my self to hell with the anxiety and depression.i need to start loving my self again.i have learned that not all people will like me.and i ok with that.i love myself and others .starting to love life again,enjoy doing things more.sometimes the anxiety trys to come i just change my thoughts.a lot of self talking and cbt and it passes.from 3 diffrent types of anxiety to just a couple of thoughts,now and again.thank goodness.its just to let people know it can happen.i hope this gives people a bit of hope.or a smile.take care my friends always here if u need any support.😃

What was your greatest anxiety or fear and how were you able to overcome it like that?

My greatest fear was being out side in crouded.places.always checking my heart beat thinking i was going to pass away.i started to have a diary.a lot of cbt.i think if i didnt have my dogs i wouldnt have went any where i used to shake like mad when i used to take them out.i just used to force my self to take the out because no one else was in. I used to colour in.listened to listed to calming apps.the test just takes time

That is very helpful. Do you feel comfortable living alone, or do you find it easier if someone could be there?
