    I have a broke up before almost 4 months and I had anxiety problem and was taking medicine for it.Now everything was calm. But today I have seen her mail ID again in my gmail chat. Then suddenly anxiety is shooting up and I no longer concentrate on work and all. I don't know what is happening to me. I think today is bad as I had some dreams about her in the morning. She is married agian and so there is no coming back. But still it is affecting me. I don't know what to do.
  • How do you overcome the difficulty of talking to someone about how you feel on a daily basis with anxiety and depression?

  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
  • possible SAD

    I've been having trouble with anxiety for a very long time and I have seem to mainly have it around the winter. My anxiety and insomnia gets bad around late fall-early winter, and then seems to get better but then I get in a very bad mood a lot of the time. I break down very easily and it has been like this since about last year at least. I expected it was a one time thing last year but now I'm afraid I might have Seasonal Affective Disorder. My brother, my mother and several other family members have depression so its definitely possible for me to have it as well. Is there anyone with similar problems who can tell me whats possibly going on with me? Thanks :)
  • Tomography or magnetic resonance? Can they help check /rule out other conditions o is it just my hipocondria talking?

    Hi, first post here. I am female, in my 20s. With GAD since I was 4 (diagnosed until late teenage years, after at least 10 years trying to convince psychologists and doctors I was not O.K. A year ago I got into the “why do you doctors do not run tests on me!? “ wave. I have been on benzos and antidepressants since 2013, every day or I become Hyde and get super aggresive. (i also take a hell of a lot of other stuff to relief the physical pain of moving all the time, as well as vitamins and all that stuff) The things is... I did X-rays because I remember hiting my head so hard when I was 9 that it literally hurt for years... touching it was like a baby soft spot. But the X rays showed nothing wrong with my skull. (Only unrelated sinuses problems) I got an Electro Encephalogram. Which showed prefrontal cortex activity way below standards. Besides all the GAD and MDD usual symptoms, -I sometimes stutter, or forget the name of regular things -I get OCD episodes (i ocd about certain things for a couple of weeks). -I get memory loss -I do not remember faces... specially of people i met the last year, i see them again and the only reason why i know they know me is because they talk to me. I also have some other things that I dont know if are “normal” for GAD or MDD, but are things I do. -I always wear the same clothes. (Same leather jacket , have at least 3 pairs of the very same shoes. And my other pairs have also duplicates and the different model are all similar with one another. Only 100% cotton shirts) - I can only write on 90% whiteness paper, anything else bothers me. It has to be at least 65grams/m^2. As tou can see I have a bad time trying to explain myself because all my thoughts are running at the same time. The thing is : If my prefrontal cortex does not work as it should. Why doctors dont even bother to order/check a TAC ? Why do they assume it has to be my anxiety? Has anyone here had their brain scanned? I have been reading thing in PubMed, there is a paper on Neuroimaging for Anxiety Dissorders. Anyway, I just want to rule out a tumor or Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
