Anxiety is ruling my life , help

Posted , 2 users are following.

My Anxiety and depression have always gone hand In hand . One day I might feel more anxious than others and the other days I might feel more depressed . I hate to say that I feel like my anxiety and depression are certainly ruling my life . I have a fear that nothing will work out in my favor, I start questioning my own sanity and everything around me. External factors also don't make things easier . I question life , I question my relationship , I question myself , basically everything is a "what if" scenario . Recently I've found it hard to think long term . My goals seem so far away I never believe when people call me "pretty" . I can never seem to take any compliments seriously . It's like I constantly have that inner voice calling me nasty names ??I feel like I'll always feel this grey cloud over my head . My depression makes me feel like I'm a bad person to the people I love and care about . I feel like my thoughts convince me easily of things that aren't true . But mostly it targets my relationship idk what to do anymore , I just don't want to feel alone anymore ...??Any input would really be appreciated ??

    Im am throwing you an huge air hug thru the internet. I can cery well hear your depression shining thru. Are you in therapy? You seriously need to be in therapy. Clinical depression can cast a huge cloudy shadow over everything making it rough to even tackle the whole anxiety range. Yes they can and do go together. I dont believe they always co exist some people have different reason for having anxiety in the first place. Your is evident here that they co exist. I do not feel you can fix all this by yourself nor should you have to. Are you being treated for this by a doctor? What is the plan here?

    I know exactly how you feel. I feel the same way. Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve happiness. I try to tell myself that life could be worse. Depression and anxiety are hard to deal with. Just know you are not alone.

      Exactly! Just because we think it, it doesn't mean it's true although our minds are powerful. I find myself comparing myself to other people. I am over weight so I struggle with self worth. I look at thin women and think they must be so happy and life must be so much easier.... Much more comfortable etc.... Then I get stressed which triggers my anxiety. Ugh! Life is tough.
