I'm going through severe depression and anxiety. I was diagnosed on 2010 after an intense 6 month flare endangering my life. I have to come to terms that my Life will never be the same. My primary referred me to a specialist for chronic health conditions. When I saw her yesterday, she said she could not help me, that I'm in severe crisis and would need intensive 3-4 days a week. Even though my co pays are 20 bucks each time and I can't afford it because I've been on short term disability 3 months now. Im going to make the sacrifice of going to therapy, I don't know how we'll manage. But we have to figure out a way.

some of the decissions we need to make are not easy.
i am almost constantly fighting depression.
just as i think i am getting a handle on things....... i fall back into a bad state.

now that you are aware of your issue..... you are already on the road to recovery.
i hope you can find a way to keep up the sessions.
now is the best time to fight this.
the longer you are in a bad state..... the harder it is to readjust.

i will be thinking of you, and waiting to hear of your progress.

Nearly every thing you listed I have dealt with or am dealing with. You are right dear, you take one day at a time. The depression and anxiety are horrible and difficult to control. It's nice to know we can come here and talk to others that are going through the same thing.
