I just turned 37. I have had anxiety and depression since my early 20s. It has cost me jobs in the past because feeling anxious and depressed has always made me shy. I have a hard time keeping my emotions in check.
As a child, I was bullied a lot which means I never made friends and its something I still struggle to do.
I have been a preschool teacher for 7 years now and there are days that are a struggle to keep my emotions in check. I feel anxious a lot
2020 as taken a toll on me mentally and physically. I'm sure I'm not the only one. I take 100 mg of sertraline and my doctor just started me on gabapetin 100mg. It is making me so shaky and its hurting my stomach. I just started seeing a therapist and I hope he can help me to calm down. I have my parents whom I still live with but I don't always want to complain to them.
Sorry about the long post. I just wanted to vent.
