depression/anxiety & understanding

Boy do I understand how it feels. Lost 2 jobs, many meds, and many hospitalizations. Now physical problems that no one seems to be able to solve plus excessive alcohol use. I am tired of drs. chalking every physical symptom up to mental illness that I could vomit. Can't find help anywhere and never seem to get better. Medicare is a huge impediment to getting help or getting better. I even had to live in my car awhile when I lost my apartment. Only 46 and many meds later only worse.

Now, I have to live with a family member that doesn't understand and just says to "get over it." I am so tired of fighting the system I could puke. Got 2 master's degrees and can't figure it out. Feel like a schlep!

Re: depression/anxiety & understanding

Maybe you need some form of councellor. Someone you can talk to and one that will be objective. Family members usually are not objective with personal issues.

As you say you have a lot of problems caused by circumstances, maybe you have suffered from clinical depression and prolonged anxiety during the years. Can you tell us the last time you were feeling fairly good about yourself and what made you feel good?
