Question Has anybody else ever dealt with a serious onset of depression and anxiety

I haven't been posting for a while because somehow I've been in a serious funk. There have been so many things on my mind as of late whether it be my school work, feeling a desire to change my lifestyle habits, and feeling anxious about the incoming year.

For one reason or another, by last Thursday, I was somewhat of a physical and emotional wreck. I had little desire to eat, I was tired and full of remorse, guilt, worry, and self-doubt. Not just about the past but my immediate future. I think that talking about it and going outside to take on new experiences has slowly helped me get better. I'm not completely "recovered" yet, but it won't happen over night.

Yes. For sure.

I am a woman of a certain age, facing menopause and I go through hormonal changes which at times have made me very depressed and self loathing. I am in a better place at the moment but I definitely understand the feeling of being in a mental funk. I worry about the future and being all alone. I think we all have those kind of feelings and it is important to talk about them and address them. I wish you well and enjoy reading the articles you post. I think exercise is very helpful with my anxiety and depression issues so inspired by your post I am going to hit the treadmill and eat more nutritiously. Sometimes I get so discouraged I don't even bother to take my own medicines which is just stupid and careless on my part. Sometimes I think I get in my own way if you know what I mean. I am glad you brought this issue up, a lot of us I am sure can relate to the issue of depression and you were brave enough to speak out about it. Thank you, TMC.

God Bless.

There are various tests online to consider if you're having a depressive episode. This is from the British National Health Service, but there are others that might be more detailed:

If you feel like you qualify, you can just go to a primary care physician who will ask questions about how you're feeling, and probably schedule a full physical. They can prescribe meds that have been around for many decades.

The thing about feeling depressed is that you suddenly just don't really care. You don't have much desire or motivation to eat or to be active. It's just that you're energy level is at an all time low. All that you really want to do and look at as a refuge of sorts is lay in the bed (even if you're so full of anxiety, that's is hard to fall asleep). And even then, that's really not healthy so you're kind of stuck.

What I've learned from this ordeal that I shouldn't think to much about whatever I did wrong or what I could've done in the past. I just have to move forward in hopes of improving myself as a person. I also learned to not rush into things to make up for lost time. Nor should I be so urgent to plan out my immediate future like getting a serious job. As of now, I should just focus on being the best student that I can be.

I had a bad depression twelve years ago, and I have been on mecication since early 2005. You will get better, even if you might have to wait some months for much improvement.
