Hi

I'm new here so just thought I'd say hi. I have depression and anxiety although it is my anxiety that causes me the most problems. I don't seem to be able to cope with much without getting anxious. I am ok if there is no kind of pressure or expectation placed on my but can't cope when I'm expected to do anything. I just start panicking.

Have struggled for most of my life but it has got really bad again over the last 6 months or so. I'm taking citalopram to try and help.

Hi and welcome. Everyone here seems pretty friendly and offers advice when they can. I also suffer from depression and anxiety and its the anxiety that is the hardest. I did take citalopram i found that it worked for a couple of months then was inaffective. I am now on sertraline and have found this quite beneficial x

Hello. I'm new here too. I also have anxiety which mostly makes me depressed, which isn't a good feeling at all. Just wanted to say hi and let you know that you are not alone and I'm here to talk if you'd like!
