"What if i lose my locker key?" - this is the oldest anxious thought i can remember having, as a kid about 8 going swimming. While most at that age would be loving splashing around i was more worried about what would happen if i lost my key or locker was broken in to. And so begins a lifetime of worry - well i'm 38 year old male now. Along the years my worries grew and as they did so to did the grip of anxiety over me. This itself has developed in to depression which opened up a whole new can of warms and vicious circle of worry.
I guess i am a functiong depressive/anxy person in that i have a job, a great partner, and can live, to what most will see as a "normal" life, and for months i can be "normal", but that wee monster is always on my shoulder and can pounce at any time to drag me back to constant worry and depression.
I have been on varioius medications, and counselling (twice), seen psychologyst , hypnotherapy , read loads and now just started CBT.
Anyway, thats a very brief outline of me, can any you guys relate to this life or any words of wisdom?
