    Sorry you have been dealing with anxieties and depression. I myself have anxieties and depression and i found out when you have negative thinking it can cause your anxieties and depression

    You need to stop worring about your future and your familys future. 

    You need to learn to trust in God because nobody know the future you can only work on whats going on in the present and work on past mistakes. Nobody knows the future only God does and worring about it now will cause anxieties and depression. 

    Try to do the stuff you need to do for today and do not worry about tomorrow when it gets here than you can. Only worry about today and the present. 

    God will handle the rest

    Hang in there

    Hi Aaliyah,

    My daughter went through the exact same thing. She 18 when it started, and just a few weeks ago it disappeared. She's now 33, so that was 15 years of suffering for her, and 15 years for us, worrying about her. She tried some meds from the doctor but she had bad reactions to them. Our GP recommended therapy, but she was too scared to leave the house, so she couldn't go. What I think would be helpful, would be to tell you her story, to give you hope.

    I've busy at the moment but I'll send you a PM tomorrow, I promise. Love Tess

    my love you have everything to live for live is to precious and so are your family. what scares you about taking medication that you may get addicted, the fact you are on medication? of course it is your my lovely and if you can find alternatives to help I really admire your strength. I had been on and of anti depressants for years and when i felt ready I STOPPED them I always weaned my self off them so when I got hit last November with depression I was determined that no more would I rely on medication as I saw it as a failure once again, for three months i cried every single day I was so low and I just couldnt pick my self up, i was being dizzy, having palpatatons and all the common symptons of anxiety and stress. it was when I went to the doctor after four months of trying to cope with each day and having palpatations and chest pains for over two hours one night she did the routine tests pulse bp ect and I just broke down I was then adamant i didnt want meds but i went back again after four days seen another female doctor who said it was depression/stress/anxiety I knew I had to go on the medication again it took nearly four weeks to kick in I also had propanalol and im feeling a lot better, the diffence is i also use aromatherapy oils and use meditation and have agree to cbt. I am in my early fifties and have just found out that im going through the menapause too but I want to spend hopefully my next twenty years plus being free from anguish and torment because tht is what anxiety and stress cause. I do feel my daughter is going to suffer as I did but where as i didnt have the support years ago i know to look for the signs and i will make sure she will never go through what I have and god willing she never will. please dont suffer take what ever help you feel will suit you best. I know that when the time is right I will come off the tablets and like i said i will wean my self off them you will get through it my love it just takes a little time
