I have been suffering with anxiety and depression for a few years now and it has only just hit me pretty hard this year and i'm finding it hard to cope with day to day activities and life in general.
The hardest part is loosing motivation to do the things you enjoy or just getting up and going to work. I feel lonely at times, i constantly compare myself to other peoples lives and always asking myself why?
With the advice of my mum she had told me to perhaps give beyond blue a call and sitting for a couple minutes looking at my phone i thought i have nothing to loose. It was the best decision i made to call Beyond Blue as i knew this is step in a forward direction for myself of getting better, the man on the other end of the phone was very understanding and let me speak my mind freely i am very greatful. He suggested I join the online forum, this is something i have never done before. So i'd love to know what anyone else on this forums coping strategies are and how you manage your anxiety or depression?
Look forward to hearing from you all soon.
