I'm trying to cover up my anxiety so that I can "function no


I'm trying to cover up my anxiety so that I can "function normally" and not be judged/misunderstood. It's so exhausting to stay composed when I'm falling apart inside. When I get home from work, I go straight to bed. I spend my weekends inside recovering from the week & preparing for the next. I don't want to lose my source of income, but I'm struggling every moment of the day and suffering in silence. I do whatever I can to numb myself from the anxious thoughts. I feel hopeless about the future. I'm losing myself. I feel trapped in my own body. I've only been on meds for 2 weeks for my depression and anxiety, but I feel even more hopeless and don't know what to believe in anymore.

meds may not be the only answer. talking it out can help. the use of cognitive behavior therapy could also be a massive help. give it a shot if you want. i obviously recommend it. take care fella.

Gosh, I am so sorry! I would definitely suggest seeing a doctor about your symptoms. I would also suggest talking to friends and family about what is going on. It is always a good idea to have people that love you to support you. Good luck. Praying for you.

Sometimes, meds take time to work. I taught school for years with depression. I know it can be tough. Stay strong.
