I have suffered with depression and anxiety for many years, I am 47 years old and am in recovery from alcohol addiction. But recently been diagnosed with copd, fibromyelgia and spondilolisis, these are all long term conditions which stop me from working, I stopped smoking 1 week ago and never felt so rubbish in my life, the anxiety I have had is so bad scared of going to sleep at night time as.my breathing is not the best, but in the last week my partners mum passed away, we sat at her bed side each day watching her struggle for breathe. This really frightened me, I have also had this constant feeling in my throat that there is something stuck. I have been to the doctors he said it is bad anxiety, I struggle to control all symptoms of pain, anxiety and depression, I find myself going for walks at silly times of the night to ease the anxiety, I just feel at present I am going mad but it is so hard to explain to other people how I am feeling,
