I’m so sorry you’re feeling this way. No one hsould go through these feelings.

Are you currently taking any medications to help with your depression? Or any natural treatments? Are you seeing someone (therapist, etc) now?

No, sucking it up doesn’t help.  And breathing exercises aren’t enough for this.  You need a mix of supportive counseling –not the kind that claims to cure you–and a med that can at least reduce your symptoms. I doubt your docs have tried everything.  Have they tried Lamictal (lamotrigine) or Elavil (amitriptyline).  These meds work very differently from others on the market and ver differently from each other.  Most docs do not correctly understand them and so do not prescribe them.  Each is very good for med resistant anxiety /depression.

Aw, honey. Mental illness is so difficult and has such a stigma in society. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression my whole life, so I can sympathize with what you’re going through. Thank goodness you have a wonderful support system (family and FI) in place. I wish I could say something that would magically “fix” you, but of course it doesn’t work that way. I just want you to know that I read your post and I’m so sorry you’re struggling right now. 

When it hurts the most, please don’t be afraid to reach out to your loved ones and tell them how you’re feeling. Keep trying therapy. Maybe you haven’t found the right therapist yet. Keep fighting. You are loved and valued and no one in the world could ever replace you to the ones who love you. I know it’s hard, but the fact that you keep trying means you are BRAVE. I don’t know if you’re in the U.S., but if you’re ever struggling badly and don’t feel like you can talk to your Fiance or family, try the suicide prevention hotline: 18002738255.

I wish you the very best. You are not alone. So many people struggle with mental illness and never tell anyone what they’re going through. *hugs* Please take care of yourself and let others take care of you too.

I feel for you, bee.  My depression and anxiety has and will always be a struggle.  I have to really work at feeling “okay”… even with medication. 

All the regular things you hear, healthy diet, exercise, supplements… they all do help to an extent.  So try to commit to the healthy lifestyle as best you can.

Are you sure you tried EVERY medication?  Maybe it’s time for a doctor’s appointment.  I know one that works is hard to find, but I wouldn’t give up on meds.  Even if you just have something on hand for panic attacks.

If you’re a hypochondriac, stay the hell off of google.  Compulsive googling will only make you worse. Come to the Weddingbee instead.

There are lots of self help books that might be useful.  Even lighthearted reads like “Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff.”  

Find a new therapist.  All therapists are not created equal.

If you commit to your mental wellbeing, you can and will get to a better place.  It may always take work, but it is worth it.

Please go get professional help for all of this if you aren’t already– talk to a therapist, because they might be able to give you some strategies for dealing with all of your fears, emotions, and panic attacks. You’re not meant to feel like this all the time, but you do need help to get better. Stay strong!

My depression and anxiety isn’t as bad as yours, but I have been through some really tough times. What works for me is getting out into nature, and smoking weed (legal in my state). When I am having a really tough time, and I am sad and I don’t know why… I just take a few puffs to relax and put on a funny show, or I go on a hike and get rid of all the negative energy. 

Sorry you are going through this, I hope the best for you.

gingerbee88:  Have you tried exercising consistently? And also have you seen a therapist who specializes in anxiety? I’m sorry you are going through this. Just know that all those you fear to lose, feel the same way if you decide to take your life.
