I am totally new to this, my first post. I am severely depressed with anxiety. I was a medical assistant for many years, and unfortunately following surgery was given opiates and within 2 weeks became addicted. I lost my job, ( my career), lost my father, and my only child passed away 2 years ago from a rare disease. I can barely make it through a day. I swear I have tried every antidepressant there is without significant results. I feel as if there is absolutely nothing to get up in the morning for. At about 4 AM I start panicking about getting through another day. Believe me, I know all the things I should be doing, but Brushing my teeth is a chore. My mother is supportive, but doesn't know what to do anymore. Nothing gives me pleasure. I used to be an avid reader, now can barely retain what I have read. I am not living, just existing. Honestly, I would rather have cancer then live like this. Maybe someone can tell me something that will turn the table. Thanking you all in advance for your words of wisdom
