I think I have always had a mix of anxiety and depression with one frequently kicking the other off. I get anxious when I am depressed and depressed when I am anxious, very difficult to see the dividing line.

I don't think any of these things can be pinned down very precisely what just exacerbates the way patients are treated by the professionals.
worred what to do as i av lost faith in the pro s

I can easily tell that my problem is anxiety, but i have had depression in the past too. I could believe that many if not most people have the both at same time.

My anxiety is through the roof. I feel really unstable?? I need constant reassurance and contact with people. Can't be on my own without thinking depressing thoughts that in turn make me throw up!! Help!!

Welcome to the forum. We're here for you. :hug:
We've all done bad stuff on occasion and we won't judge you. You are clearly a woman of conscience and so I think not someone who would do something out of malice. It'll be ok. :hug:
