Overwhelmed

I’ve been doing an okay job of keeping together, but today, I just broke down. Im still suffering from anxiety, and I feel like it is never going to end. I haven’t left the house in months, and i’m anxious all the time about my health, job, and family. My mom went to the doctor today and her blood pressure was very high, which scared me as well, so i started being anxious about her. I feel so overwhelmed, like life seems to not get any better. Sometimes, I think, why do i even bother living?

I’m trying to have a better mind frame and keep God close to my mind and heart. But it’s hard sometimes. I just ask that anyone reading this will pray for me, and I will do the same for you

You welcome

I hope you are under medical treatment for your anxiety. This is too big to tackle by yourself.

I was prescribed some anti-anxiety and anti-depressants, but they made it worse. i’m sensitive to medication.

Have you looked into talk therapy? I think it would help you to not feel so overwhelmed.

I have. I’m not working right now, so I don’t have very good insurance. and my insurance doesn’t cover pre-existing medical. So i have to find another insurance or pay our of pocket. I am currently using a app called Better Health, and talking to a therapist on there, but my free trial is about to expire and I don’t have the money to pay.

But I know talk therapy would definitely help me

You might be able to find something free or low-cost by contacting your county health services, or something similar in your area. Your regular doctor might be able to suggest some alternatives, also.

In the meantime, go to psychcentral.com and read some short articles on how to deal with depression and anxiety.

You (and everyone else on this site) are in my prayers nightly.

omg this was so sweet. thank you so much. much needed

Don’t stop praying! This community is wonderful. Even on a bad day, coming here for support feels so good and brings a smile to my face. I want you to know I said a prayer for you. I know how you feel because I have been feeling the same. I don’t want to leave my house but I have to force myself to get out and when I do... for that short time I forget and it has helped. I pray it gets better for you. I hope you and your mom get better. Blessings to you and sweet dreams

Thank you so much. There are times when I feel like God isn’t listening but I know He is because He wakes me up every morning. I really appreciate the prayers. I’m taking one day at a time. Blessings to you as well

You’re welcome 💕🙏
