Do I have a problem?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello there!

I'm writing here to ask for some help.

I've been feeling depressed, irritated, angry, anxious, fearful, worried in the last couple of weeks. 

I moved to another city to study. I experienced severe anxiety for god knows what reason, that actually turned into depression, crying like crazy (rolling in bed, barely breathing etc). I gave up on the degree and that made me feel better. I didn't stay home though, I came back to find a job in this new city. I applied for several companies. I got only one interview. I was anxious again during the call, could barely talk. I blocked for a few seconds. 

I sleep ok. maybe too much. 9-10h/night.

maybe I should mention that my father was agressive verbally and physically all through my childhood and my adolescence. So my question is: do I need to see a therapist? or is this temporary and normal?

    Hi Dana, it does sound like depression with anxiety and yes I would suggest your anxiety is asa result of your up bringing and coming yo teams with it will help do councelling would be extremely useful.

    It is temporary and is normal for anxiety to feel depressed and visa versa, your certainly in good company here.

    I would red moment seeing your GP and discuss your symptoms and the options available to you and take it from there.

    I wish you well. Neil

      Hi Neil!

      Thank you very much for your reply! I hope I will find a good therapist. I'm a bit sceptical about them. I had a bad experience with one: I paid a lot of money to hear something that I had already known and she gave no solution. 

      But I know that I have never been more desperate to get help as I am now. 

      Have a nice evening!

    Hi Dana, It is common for individuals to have both depression and anxiety. I began with depression many years ago, which is mostly under control presently; then I developed panic attacks and anxiety. I was given cognitive behavioural therapy  on the NHS for anxiety a couple of years ago which was really helpful. but it can also be used for the treatment of depression. I still experience anxiety but  am in control. Perhaps CBT would be a place to start recovery for you. Hope this helps..
