anxiety and depression

hi! i am new here, just joined infact. i have anxiety disorder and severe depression. anxiety disorder is genetic but it all increased 10 times after a very horrible breakup with the man i thought i will marry and then family pressure into joining a public servant career. lost friends and screwed up relationship with family so much that my mother called me her mistake. i am here to connect with people like me, who have been through this or are still going through anxiety and depression and to find the path to recovery.

So sorry to read that, you've been through the mill, I'm glad you found this group, as I am for myself, and I hope for improvement and recovery for all of us x

Thinking about what you wrote, and looking back at my long life it sounds as though there are several things in common with what you've been through. For me, coming towards the end of mine now, I can tell you without one doubt that it's an absolute waste to try to please others to the extent that it impacts your life in this way. You can't influence their behaviour towards you but you can seek support and help to distance yourself from such negativity. And gain the strength to go forward and live your life on your own terms. My gift to you, I wish you the best.

I'm also relatively new to this site but the thing that has comforted me the most has been understanding that I'm not the only one with these struggles. People from all over the world are talking about having the same sensations and symptoms as myself. This has helped me to normalize my mental health. I'm not a fan of applying labels to my mental health, all that matters is this is how I feel, this is what I'm experiencing, now how can I best live with it. I truly hope the site helps you. Good luck 🍀
