Hello everybody,

Just signed up. I was diagnosed with mild/moderate anxiety & depression five years ago during uni but managed it without medication and some CBT with a change of location, circumstances and exercise, with the occasional rough spot.

I'm currently going through relationship issues, today has been the darkest day since I was first diagnosed and I think it has kicked off abit of a breakdown/crisis in worrying and feeling completely hopeless about the future and other issues in life. I've tried to eat but have no appetite, and any time I've tried to start thinking about the situation I just break down in tears, and with only a parent to speak to about things, I feel really alone.

I'm not really sure what to do from here but I'm looking forward to speaking to you all.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I am very sorry that you are struggling. Don’t let negative emotions and thinking get to you. Try to distract yourself and go out if you can.

Do you have a therapist? It will be a good choice to see one. Have you tried family therapy to save your relationship?

I hope things get better for you soon.

Thank you both :)

It's difficult to get out at the moment, I'm breaking down in tears whenever I do something, even as menial as showering or making a cup of tea. I called a friend this morning and the same thing happened several times.

Therapy isn't really an option, it's a long-term relationship that has become long distance over the past 10-11 months or so, but the situation and issues over the last few days have been a complete shock and I'm finding it hard to begin coping with it. I'm still not able to eat or gather my thoughts. I think a doctors visit might be worth trying when I'm able to leave the house again.

I hope you're both well :grouphug:
