Hi everyone. I'm sure my story is similar to many others. I've suffered from anxiety since a child which has in turn brought on depression. I'm now 40 and seemed to have hit a brick wall. I stopped work a few years ago as I struggled with my confidence, panic attacks and a bout of depression that I just could not shake. I'm a two steps forward and two steps back kind of person as I can go from feeling ok, even stepping out of the house to locking myself away for weeks at a time. I've been on a waiting list now for about 20 months even though I was told I was a priority so it's hard at times not to feel like the invisible man. I'm hoping I can get some tips, pointers, help and guidance here. I'll take anything I can get.
