Question is this just depression?

I know that I have been depressed on and off for the past 4 years. I also know that coming off medication is hard for me. I have however about a month ago, managed to come off medication all together [it took 1 1/2 months but I did it]. It was fine at the start but now I'm getting panicy and kind of paranoid.

I worry about terrorism, death, worrying my life is over, wanting to go back to my childhood, being afraid I'm not truly loved and things like this. It makes me upset and also quite frightened. In the past I've had a defect with fear in which I don't feel it. I just feel adrenaline... As in a kind of thing in my brain, a fight not flight response... So the fear frightens me on it's own.

What do I do guys?

Thanks so much

Re: is this just depression?


To me it sounds like your issues are more on an anxiety level then a depression level. Was there any reason why you stopped taking meds?

Yes there is depression with anxiety. The low self esteem is hard to deal with. Try to get on some meds. I wish I could find one that I can either tolerate or doesn't turn me into a zombie. Godbless
