Hello everyone. Anxiety has taken over my life again. I am now 40. I was first diagnosed with anxiety and depression at 28. Worked my way through it with medications, therapy, life style changes. It went away about 85%. And now it’s like WHAM! Back full throttle 1000%. As I’m typing this right now my heart is pounding, my face is tingling, my thoughts are racing. All I want to do is sleep because that’s the only time I am free of this crippling feeling.

Hello and welcome to the group! I can tell you right now, you are among friends. I haven't been here long but the support has been more than I could have asked for. It helps to know, we are not alone. I was where you are only a week ago. I'm still struggling but finding some hope and I can breathe a little better.. I hope you find some peace here.

Welcome to the board my fellow Generation X'er I was born in 1980 also. I can totally relate to all of these feelings you are having. You gotta get strong and battle thru it. Try to find the things that make you happy and take back life! Because you deserve to be happy.

I appreciate the kind words. I want to be happy so bad but I make sure other people are happy before me. It’s a fault of mine. I moved from my entire family and the only place I ever called home almost a year ago and I thought it would make me happy to get away from all the negative things and now I miss it more than ever. I wake up most days thinking why did you ever choose to move from the only thing you ever knew to a place where you have no one but your kids and it’s taking a toll on me.
