Hey everyone. I'm writing here again because ever since the New Year, my anxiety and depression has gotten worse.
Granted it's the not first time I've had a bit of nervousness at the New Year but after such a big and progressive year like 2016, going to 2017 seems not only surprising but also frightening. I know it seems like I should be positive, but I just keep getting the feeling this year won't live up to what last year offered or what I've accomplished. I suppose it's just the fear of the unknown but it's still very scary.
Because of that, not only has my anxiety still remained but I've gotten depressed to the point where I've become apathetic. I can't enjoy my interests, passions and the simple things in life now because of all this constant, constant thinking and it makes me panic a lot. I try to keep telling myself that "it's all in your head" but it helps very little. During this, I'm getting minor headaches and it also makes me worried I'm either going insane or I have something wrong with me. I really, REALLY hope I'm okay. I just want to enjoy what I use to now but I feel it's pointless because I'm constantly worried that the New Year isn't going to offer the same. Any advice? I'm very scared and concerned.
