If you are reading this and you are feeling anxious or depressed there is support out there. You are not the only one feeling like this, millions of people suffer from short term or long term anxiety or depression. Talking is best thing you can do, do not feel ashamed as you have nothing to be ashamed of. You are just struggling and need support. Ask family and friends for support. Make a doctors appointment and ask for help, if you are not happy with the help they offer ask for more.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) helps you work through your problems and although it may not take it away it will give you tools to support you. Also medication is nothing to be ashamed of. My Sertraline has really helped me.
