Sorry to hear about symptoms coming back. Hopefully you can find some answers soon about the cat scan to help ease some of the stress.. I’m dealing with depression/ anxiety again too ( was doing good for a good while) sometimes I wonder why can’t the good times just last a little longer ? Lol

Really though, its terrible when you think you’ve got it for a minute and then just comes crashing back down.. I’ve been told a couple times that it’s inevitable, like a flare up of any other illness that would affect your body ( our illnesses are just like that but affecting the mind ) it’s kind of a hard realization to live with, but I’m working on it

When I feel like I am finally feeling better I start to wonder when the other shoe will drop and I trigger myself. It's a never ending battle....

It’s very sickening, I know we all are gonna go through things some worse than others, but sometimes I wonder why? It’s so many people out here that seriously don’t give a damn about life, abusing drugs/alcohol without a care in the world, then there’s us, trying to make it through the day

honestly i used to be that guy abusing drugs/ alcohol.. it was way to escape from my depression before i knew i had it and knew better.. i very much regret my wasted time, and how i treated myself and others then.. i was so very wrong in my ways. part of the reason i almost ended things a few year back.. i definitely know what you mean, it is sickening to see from the outside( like its a waste of good potential), but sometimes those people are more like us than you know.. trust me i agree with you, just sometimes things arent the way they seem

You are definitely right, I don’t disagree I’m just on the outside looking in really trying to make some sense of my own struggle, I literally don’t do anything but try to stay healthy & find some peace & happiness, but yet I’m always stuck in the dark scared, worried, lonely crying in a dark corner

everyone’s struggle is different and yours is no less difficult or confusing than mine. its very hard to make sense of it sometimes. i too am in search of peace and happiness and trying to be healthy. that feeling of being stuck, afraid and alone, worrying what the future holds( or doesn’t ) for us. is something i very much understand.. sometimes i’ll cry from the feeling and sometimes i want to cry from the feeling but cannot. i hope we both can find our way through these stuggles and loneliness that our minds seem to make worse than it is for others.. just know in the least you are not alone, even if it does feel like it
