How do people deal with anxiety and depression?
I feel like my various traits make anxiety and depression worse and when I'm in a rut I don't look after myself properly.
I want to move out but I don't feel that I can because of how bad my mental health gets. I've never had much support from family but I'm not sure how I'd survive on my own and I'm scared.
I've had counselling several times but I'm sick of this cycle. I do meditation and mindfulness etc. & Currently avoiding the gym due to extreme anxiety.
I was diagnosed as an adult so never had any support after diagnosis. I contacted the team who diagnosed me but never got a response.
I don't have anyone to ring on my behalf or anything. I don't trust family due to the way they have treated me/others over the years
Im lucky enough to have a nice boyfriend but I'm scared he will leave me and then I'll be back to being alone.
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. For the first time in a while I'm asking for help but not getting anywhere and I'm just feeling like I've got no fight left.
