Hello all, im a 26 year old male andI suffer from depression and anxiety and it has me to the point where I can't work, go to school, or even leave the house most days. I get anxiety from being in public, around people, knowing I have to work the next day, and when I try to sleep. I have bad panic attacks every day and night over the simplest things. I get extremely sad at night time and it seems to hit me out of nowhere. I have a girlfriend of a year and a half now and we are very much in love and she helps me alot, but I worry my problems and not working atm will get into the way eventually. I've held over 20 jobs in my life time and most don't last over a month. I went to college for 3 years but have no degree to show for. I find myself missing my elementary school days and reminiscing on the past and wishing I could go back. I also have suicidal thoughts, although I don't believe I could ever actually carry through with them as I don't have the courage to do so. All of my friends have moved away or have moved on with their lives and no longer communicate and new friends are hard to make. This makes things difficult as well. I have been on over 15 anxiety and depression meds since I was first diagnosed at age 16. I've had short therapy sessions but I never told them in depth of how I feel and about the suicidal thoughts. I have scheduled an appointment for next week however and plan to tell them everything I've mentioned in this text. I'm just looking to see if anyone can relate, offer advice, encouragement, success stories or anything else. It would all be greatly appreciated. God bless
