Hello! My name is Katie and I'm new to the forums. I've been battling depression since I was 14 (now I'm 24) and I've been anxious since childhood. I see a therapist and have taken medication (Lexapro) since 2008. I had been feeling a little better, but lately, I've been having a hard time. I've been dealing with stress at my job and with my family (my dad has his own issues, and his moods can be very unpredictable). I've also made a new friend at work, but I'm really shy and insecure. Whenever I see her interacting with other people, I feel like she likes them better than me/doesn't like me, which I know isn't true. I haven't been able to shake this terrible sadness. I cry or feel like crying every day. Everything seems like it takes too much effort. I took a nap the other day and told my mom, "Those 2 hours where I didn't feel or think anything were the best part of my day." The sadness and anxiety actually hurt - I get this feeling of heaviness in my chest. I honestly can't remember the last full day where I didn't feel that pain. I'm just so tired of everything.
