I'm MNT_Bootlooper, I was (mis)diagnosed with Dysthymia a few years ago. It's a lot worse than I let on to my psychiatrist, out of fear of losing my job (mental health is an important thing in my line of work).

I get anxious out in public, particularly while driving a vehicle on a busy road or in crowded rooms/shopping centers which have set me into panic attacks. Suicide is a daily fantasy for me while I'm lying in bed taking forever to get to sleep. I don't have any friends and I can't afford to maintain any of the hobbies I enjoy...
