hey, everyone

i’ve struggled with anxiety my whole life, but these past months have been hell. i am having anxiety attacks, i can’t attend to my class or do exams. every time i go out i feel anxious and scared of having another panic attack or pass out, i can’t enjoy anything.

and this, i think it led me to depression. lately i’ve been having these thoughts that i am going to be stuck like this forever, i don’t see a way out, and if life is going to be like this, is it worth living?? i’m not able to think about my future, i see my friends and family evolving and i’m here, stuck, and i can’t imagine a future with me on it.

and these thoughts scare me so much that a lot of times send me into another anxiety attack, and the cycle begins again.

has anyone experienced this and is okay now?? is it posible to recover?

i don’t wanna die, but i don’t wanna live like this either

Have you talked to a doctor? Some medication might help.

they gave me some anxiety medication but they don’t want me to go on treatment because of my age (19) but i think that i really need it to keep going. i have an appointment tomorrow and i’ll ask him about depression as well, because i think that what is making me more depressed is the medication that he already gave me

Ever tried telling yourself "It will be alright. Don't worry." ? (in your own language, of course). Positive self-talk works.

I don't want to get big on giving advice, but try to find a good reason or "why?" rather than a "what?" as motivation.

I have suffered from depression most of my life, I’m 47 now, and most of the people I know do not understand or appreciate my condition. My friend recommended me Dr. Mitra at BH Acuhealth who treats depression with Acupuncture. I was happy that they motivated me.
