hi! i am new here. I had some really bad days lately with extremely high anxiety levels and depression and I am currently in a situation in which I feel I can't change much of my situation, so I feel I am stucked. its a long story, but mainly I took some bad decisions for myself considering my condition and now I am suffering of the consequences.

although I am dealing with anxiety disorder for 10 years, it was only out of my current despair that I googled for a forum to find others that are coping with similar things and situations today, so at least the loneliness that comes with all of this as a kind of side effect would be a bit more bearable. and it is a relief to read these threads!

I have finished a long term therapy about half a year ago and it feels like I am trying to deal with all of it on my own now, while I am still trying to figure out the whole complexity of triggers and all... feeling stupid with myself all and all over again. like I keep on forgetting I have an anxiety disorder, then I take decisions that are a bit to brave for me and so find myself tong to deal with it. and I understand, I want to be better than I am, its just that I am obviously not so much.

one of the things that make me feel stuck is constant self-censoring and doubting and being irritated by everything. I posted in some threads and got irritated that nobody answered which I guess is normal and maybe this is due to time differences, but there is this anxious loud voice in me that tries to convince me that I am all alone and I did something wrong and all is full of shame and and and... trying to keep opening up though, so there is the chance to find new voices

Hey. I also suffer from severe anxiety panic and depression. Dealing with it since 21 now 40. Had some really great years with meds and my med would stop working. My last med stopped working 8 months ago and I’ve been on a merry go round of meds just making me worse. It’s so hard dealing with anxiety. I know how it is. We all make rash decisions because of the way we feel. Don’t be to hard on yourself

I totally understand the anxiety around nobody commenting or replying to your posts. It took time for me to get less anxious about it as I came to realize why that might happen and most of it didn't have anything to do with me. I still have bad days, but for the most part, I feel ok. I'm also taking clonazepam for anxiety. Fyi.
Best wishes to you! If you ever need to talk, I'm here. :)
