    I know how you feel. I've recently been diagnosed with anxiety and depression and just feel like i don't know what's going on with my life anymore. I have been taking citalopram for about a month now but i can't tell if its helping yet. I don't think anyone will understand what you go through no matter how supportive friends and family are. I personally feel that people think im making my illness up. I just hear 'be stronger', 'your so pathetic','whats wrong with you' or 'get over it'.

    Try counselling that might help. I'm not ready or feel confident in seeing a counsellor yet but see how you feel about it.
