Hello. I have been really struggling the past few months with the quarantine and coronavirus scare. I have suffered from severe anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, and depression since I was a kid. In my twenties, I developed OCD and agoraphobia. I have done therapy and tried countless medications (which caused horrible side effects) but nothing helped. My lastest psychiatrist believed that my body has a resistance to antidepressants. Currently, I am seeing a therapist through televisits, but I am not taking medications. Anxiety medications are somewhat helpful, but my psychiatrist is not authorized to prescribe any of my states controlled substances, So anyway, things weren't good before the pandemic, but I was hanging on. Anxiety and depression were basically manageable. Then the quarantine started. I live by myself and have very few friends (social anxiety) and family. Both of my parents died fairly young and I am an only child and am single with no children. The little family I am in contact with has been mostly unhelpful, and at times, harmful. From the beginning of the quarantine, I had what most would consider an irrational fear of contracting the virus. As the quarantine continued, my fears worsened. Going outside for anything went from difficult to almost impossible. I haven't had human contact in over three months. I believe my anxiety is getting worse every day because of the isolation I have been in. When I'm not anxious, I'm in a deep depression from the loneliness and stress I feel. All of my issues have caused me to only have a couple of friends and family that I ever talk to. The one person who talks to me somewhat regularly has been more harmful than helpful, saying things that cause me to have panic attacks. I feel like my therapist is the only person I can open up to who actually listens to me and supports me. What I really need right now is some support and hopefully some new friends. I'm hoping I can find some here.
