Since 8 Ptsd and depression and my teen years panic attacks and my adult years panic attacks and anxiety attacks and am 41 so I been struggling for a long time and am afraid I might go back to my old habits and that’s self medicating because when I was drinking I was going places and doing everything I wanted to do without fear and now I feel so struck in my life and that alone makes me hate myself I can remember a time when I was very happy and pleased with life but not no more and it scares me because people commit suicide every day because of mental illness

hello,it seems that you were only coping with life via self med,ie drinking,i can understand that as I too took a measure of alcohol to cope and even then I just got by. reverting back to old habits could possibly help to motivate you,though its questionable ,in the sense that its a stimulant and the initial problems still exist,my advice is get yourself into group-therapy(if you can) or find another way by joining in and sharing interest -and your goal being to find a passion in life.hope that helps.

Thank you

Hi @Tamka39 I'm really sorry you're having such a hard time coping. Please remain strong and don't feel you need to go back to self medicating with alcohol. Your life is valuable and you have been so brave to stop the drinking and I encourage you to keep taking little steps towards living life without fear. Don't feel you are alone. Consider some counseling and keep reading your bible. There is a wonderful resource here bit.ly/2mFxWoz, that I found very insightful and useful about coping with depression. Wish you all the best and strength for the future.

Keep up the struggle. You are not alone. "The Lord Himself will go before you and will be with you; he will never leave you or forsake you. "( Deut. 31:8) I will be praying for you. Say positive things to yourself each day and repeat them often. Remember you are a wonderful creation of God and He cares for you 1 Peter 5:7
