I have been struggling with this for over ten years.when I get a spell I am unable to work, I get a feeling of hopelessness, I’m tired and sleep alot. Have feelings of fear that I will never get over this. worry about my bills  ,feel bad because I can’t help out with them thus feelings of worthlessness. I have been thru treatment twice and it helped . So I go about my life and everything is going fine then out of nowhere my anxiety acts up. I also have been diagnosed with major depression, so I get very depressed also. My anxiety has been so bad at times that I was unable to get a job. I would get hired and either back out or go and have my anxiety make it so I quit. So I gave up for two years looking for work. I even tried to get disability but was turned down.

I was a cook for work and worked at different places. I now work at a assisted living facility as a housekeeper. I have been doing this for 3 years. It isn’t to stressful but it gets a little boring doing the same thing over and over.At least my employer is under standing about my mental health. I am planning on retiring at 65  so I hope I don’t have to deal with the stress of working.

When I have a spell my mind seems to go in the negative direction and I seem to keep thinking about the same thing over and over. I think about my sexless marriage and feel bad for my wife. I had prostate cancer 11 years ago , they took my prostate out ,so now I have ED.

I don’t know how my wife puts up with this ,but i am lucky to have a wife that has supported me through all of this and continues to do so.

I have never done this  before so  thank you for  the chance to talk about my problems. I know that group therapy does help. I have been looking for a support group but haven’t had much luck so I hope this helps.
