Anxiety and Depression Experiences I Have Had

I've had anxiety my whole life but it become worse as I grew up. It was really hard having anxiety because I was not able to make the decisions that I wanted to make and there are always second thoughts. I am always anxious and have unnecessary worries. As a result, I cannot sleep at night and its so frustrating. My worries are not helping me with my sleep time at all. I just wished that it will go away somehow but I know that is not possible right now. I've been having depression for a while now. Now I have to deal with this as well. Having anxiety was already difficult but now depression is not making things any better. Having depression gives me depressing and negative thoughts that I do not even want to think of. Having depression makes me question life in general like what happens if I am not here anymore. Would anyone even care about me? How would the people who are close to me will feel if I am not there anymore? Is it better that I am not here anymore?

Worldofpastel, (I like your username) Let me tell you, I just met you and I care about you.

You are here for a reason as we all are. Your family and friends would be devastated if they

lost you. I think you know the answers to all the questions and doubts in your mind right now. This is depression making you think like this.

Unfortunately, there is no magic wand that could take all your worries away. However,

seeing your doctor should be the first step you take in helping yourself. When our mental

health illness starts to impact our daily life, we need to seek professional help. You deserve

to feel better and to live a full life. I wish you well in getting the help you need. :) xx

Thank you for what you said. Honestly, now I feel that I am not going through this alone and that there are other people as well. This makes me feel a little bit better.
