Anxiety and depression

Hi, I'm new today. Not sure if this will make a difference but I'm really starting to give up 👎🏼. I'm 23, I suffer from anxiety & depression, it all started when I was 15 and my mum passed away. Now it's just me and my sister, however she's not really there for me, no one is, I just feel like I'm an inconvenience to everyone. Like when I speak to people about it, it seems like they're sick of hearing the same shit. I've had counselling, been to my GPS countless of times, I'm also on anti-depressants. I sound so pathetic! I just want to be normal :( :(

With anxiety there are always bad days . I have many bad days no meds have helped me. Many days I feel the same as you but just remember you are strong and you are not alone . Dealing with anxiety is tough but you are tougher

I understand. Normal takes baby steps but you will get there. My wife was diagnosed with cancer and I thought she was not gonna make it. That sent me into a spiral. She came through but damage was done to my confidence. I now have anxiety attacks randomly, but with time it's gotten better. Just speaking to people who've been through it helps. But I promise it can improve. We're all here for you.

Hey Amy! I can't relate 2 losing any loved one's, which sorry 2 hear that btw, but since my anxiety started up the last few months, I've felt like I was dying, I was annoying everyone and just really bad things like that. U can make it through this though! There's always somebody 2 talk 2. If not in your life, then always on here. That's what this community is 4!!

Hello

My mother passed away when I was ten and thats when mine started, although back then I didn't realise it was anxiety etc because I thought it was normal to feel how I felt back then. I was to young to understand.

Are you on any medication for this and are you doing any other things to help yourself?

You are normal. So many people have depression and anxiety you just can't see it. How many people do you pass in the street who are exactly the same? You may have anxiety and depression throughout your life but you need to find your coping strategies and fight back every time. Don't give up!!
