I can’t stand this depression and anxiety! I feel like I’m barely hanging on. I’ve been depressed for years and I’m so exhausted and scared that I will never get better. Does anyone else feel this way or have some advice?

Anxiety and Depression Support
Hey. I’m also going through a very bad episode of what I believe is health anxiety. I’ve got scary neurological symptoms that have got me so terrified that I can now barely eat or sleep. It’s 7pm now and i’m starting to get anxious that night is coming.
All I can say is this will pass. Just ride with it and try and do something to take your mind off it.
For me I have been on this forum a lot and watching reruns of Glee on Netflix. I can’t concentrate on watching anything else.
I’m just so hopeless. I feel like I’m barely hanging on. These feelings are so strong and scary. This isn’t living. It’s just trying to get by. I’m so sick of it. Sorry I don’t want to be such a downer.
As far as I can tell depression never leaves but with the right meds life is liveable.
What if you’ve tried more than 20 different medications and nothing seemed to work...
I feel exactly the same. My anxiety was previously controlled by medication but not working now.
It feels hopeless
It gets better, You will find light soon 😊
I've been depressed for years and understand the terror of imagining a lifetime of this pain. I think the point is to know that things will change (nothing can stay the same forever), and have hope that they will improve in ways I can't currently imagine. I think depression and anxiety can be chronic illnesses, they'll be with us forever, we just have to hope that we will get better at coexisting with them (or medical/psych research will find more effective treatments! Life is long, who knows). I'm so sorry you're in so much pain though. It can be excruciating 💔 Hang in there, friend
I have no good advice as I am feeling the same way. Everyday is a struggle... but I once read that the toughest people are tried the hardest in life.
