I'm sorry that you are going through this but this is definitely the best place to be. I too suffer from severe anxiety and major depressive disorder. It's now to the point where it's affecting my health. Anyone who does not suffer from these conditions will not fully understand what you are going through. Have you seen a doctor? Are you taking any medication? What is causing your anxiety/depression?

Yes no one understands how I feel, I started suffering with anxiety and depression after my nervous breakdown. It's also affecting my health and I'm so emotional and fragile right now. My family thinks it's nothing they do not realize how serious it is. I get told you better deal with it. I did see a doctor I am on mylan alprazolam

It does help but I still get horrible days

Trust me you are not alone. I feel the same way and I am also on medication and see a doctor. I always try to explain to my parents how much I am struggling and how it's taking over my life/health and they brush it off and minimize my anxiety as if its something that can be cured overnight by taking deep breaths and trying to "calm" myself down.

do you see a psychiatrist regularly? that's my next step to start therapy as well as the medication to see if it can at all make a difference.

I'm so sorry about you and your husband. I can't imagine how much more stress that is on you. My husband and myself had hit a little bit of a rough patch at the beginning but now he is my biggest supporter. When it's really bad he does the cooking, cleaning, and takes care of the baby and he never complains. He goes out of his way to make sure that I am comfortable. It's a blessing and a curse because now I feel completely dependent on him. My anxiety is particularly bad when I'm home alone. Try talking to your husband and be brutally honest about what is making you depressed/anxious. Let him know that you didn't plan for this to happen to you but you are making the appropriate changes to get better for yourself and for your family.

Thank you I am going to do that. These things put a lot of pressure on a marriage. He is going to start coming with me to my support group cause he wants to understand and help that's what he said now

Thank you so much I need to find recovery . I don't know where to start I'm so emotional and the anxiety and depression started after my nervous breakdown. My family does not understand and thinks I'm looking for attention cause they say I should be fine now

I just got done seeing a new psychiatrist and she recommended I make life style changes. She suggested that into gluten free. She told me to take probiotics, tumeric, vitamin b w/methylfolate, vitamin d, and ashwaganda. I am vitamin d deficiency and I have been for a couple years now. I never took the vitamins prescribed to me because I didn't realize vitamin d was so important. She did tell me that chronic vitamin d can lead to depression and anxiety. I'm going to give it all a try because at this point I have nothing to lose.

I am so sorry that you are going through this but I am so thankful that you have found us here! Talk to us and let us encourage you and pray for you. Big hugs!
