I'm Mark and am 29. Its been a while since I have posted anything on here and just looking for some advice or personal experinces from people have had with CBT. I have suffered with depression and anxiety for a number of years now and it has usually be controlled by take citalopram, I have been on and off the drug taking from 10-20mg.
I recently came back early from a trip abroad due to my anxiety and depression getting me so down. I was worried anywhere I travelled and kept thinking i was going to lose things and sometimes didnt want to leave my room or meet people. I had so many negative thoughts and just couldnt enjpy my trip and decided to return home to seek help. I have increased my meds to 20mg and my doctor has suggested cbt.
I can see the suggestion of cbt as usually my depression/anxiety always fits the same pattern. I usually get stressed with something at work, then i start doubting myself and then get to the point i dont want to see people, feel worthless and find it hard to cope with just general life. I have decided to try another job as i think it could be worth looking for something less stressful.
I know it probably sounds stupid but I worry about my future if i have a family, get a mortgage and been able to cope with hard times. I just want to get back to been my happy self when i look forward to the future and know i can cope with what it brings and not constantly worry.
Just wondered if other people have felt the same way any help or support would be greatly appreciated?
