This is my first post here, so hello to everyone
I am 38, male and have been suffering anxiety / depression for about a year.
Symptoms include tiredness, demotivation, lots of tension particularly in the morning, worrying about everything, but particularly money. (or lack of it)
It seems to have been triggered by problems with my business which have got worse and worse. its very close to going under. i dont really have much debts, but i cant seem to make a decision on my future.
Luckily i have a partner who can help financially with the mortgage, but I seem unable to make a decision on whether to continue with it, and try and get new business (which is a big problem as I am very de-motivated, but which I am doing at the moment) or try and find another job - and go back to being employed, with a regular income coming in (again i find interviews stressful and feel out of my depth, as i work for myself and haven't brushed up on my skills) - I also dont know what job to apply for as I dont feel to be able to make clear decisions.
has anyone been in a similar situation?
I have seen the doc, and he has done bloodtests to check for the usual things, but nothing back yet.. I am reluctant to take meds, due to side effects.
