I know exactly how you feel! I am so tired of hearing its anxiety or depression. I made it 46 years without any problems with depression or anxiety and I don't have any now. I went to the neuro opthamoligist yesterday and after a lot of pressure from me he finally said my optic nerve problem could be a sign of ms!
