Hi, I'm Brian. I'm new to the forum. Basically new to talking about my problems with anybody. I have been living with Clinical Depression and Chronic Anxiety Dissorder for as long as I can remember, trying to deal with it all myself, but I think it is time to reach out for help.
I think this will be easier to do with other people who have similar experiences. I get tired of people who don't understand just telling me I need to "cheer up" "just be strong, you can do it" "dont worry, your just feeling down" If it was that easy I wouldnt be they way I am.
Anyway, hope I can find someone to talk to here, I really need that.
Brian, okay, I was just thinking about maybe you were always an anxious kid and then you got depression later? If this occurred the anxiety could have caused the depression. Depression can be caused from strong unexpressed emotions (anxiety).
