36 year old male new to the board. I feel like I have always dealt with depression/anxiety/loneliness to some extent but that least year has been especially troublesome with these issues.

I lost my job and haven't been able to find a new full time job since then. I have had some minor health issues which have messed with my head as well. I have always been an introvert and haven't minded being alone, but the isolation of the past year has taken its toll and I am having issues re-connecting/socializing with people. I have recently been having flashbacks to a traumatic experience in my past and it is causing me sleep and concentration issues. I have been able to stay active and stay in shape, but my energy and motivation for most things has decreased. It feels like I am simply trying to get through each day as opposed to actually enjoying them. I know I have a lot to be grateful, but I constantly feel lost in life and feel like my life has been a regretful disappointment up to this point and wonder if it is too late to live a happy, fulfilling life. I do not have thoughts of hurting myself or others.

Not sure what to expect from this forum, but I figured I would join and introduce myself to see if there might be some resources on here which can help.

Thanks
