Crushing hopelessness

On the outside my life looks great. Lovely family, good job, healthy, no money problems but I have recently been hit with crushing depression and anxiety and the inability to sleep. I just want my old life back. I fear so much for the future and for my family. Just looking for some advice or encoragement. Is there anyone on here who has been through this and come out the other side feeling fine? Have gone from a normal happy guy to feeling suicidal in a few months.

I’ve been there and there again. My circumstances are Health related in the way how it came to be I have ptsd and CND. What I can say is you will recover you’re really burnt out and if you can take some time to yourself away from challenges for a bit you can heal. There will be panic attacks here in there back to back but you just recognize them for what they are and say no. Get lots of hugs and slow things down take time for you and love others safely. Fact you have a stable family environment is key and you will get through with that. I did recover before it took a lot of hugs and effort and self talk and physical effort too. If you gym that might help. You can recover
