Anxiety board

I used to be addicted to these boards.I started coming just before Christmas and I was on them every day. I tried to keep track of a lot of categories. Then life got busy and I was having a hard time keeping up. I was actually getting stressed about keeping up if you can believe it! Then things seemed to be getting better and I was making a lot of posts about that (mostly under the depression category). Then things started getting bad again and I felt stupid so I stopped coming here.

I kind of regret that because I found this place such a help. I suffer from depression and generalized anxiety, and I'm not sure which came first. I have low self esteem and I'm constantly worrying about things, mostly because I don't think I'm good enough. I think the low self esteem/depression is my original problem starting many years ago, and caused my worrying problems. Now I think that the anxiety is worse because I used to have serious troubles sleeping that I have under control right now with Remeron. But the main reason I think stress/anxiety has taken over as my main problem is because many times I feel like I'm starting to really get better, and I think that maybe you actually can totally recover from this kind of stuff, then something really stressful happens and it brings me right back down again. Does any of this make sense?

I was starting to feel really good about myself, but I have a very stressful job, and a series of things happened at work that made my life hell. Then all of a sudden I was depressed again and I was depressed about all areas of my life. My work was really affecting my life. So I feel there's definitely a pattern. How I feel about the rest of my life is definitely connected with how things go at work.

Anyway, I didn't mean to go on as long as I did. It just feels good to talk about it sometimes. Thanks for listening. :)
