Working thru anxiety and depression is not easy, and takes some work on our part. I hope you will continue with your therapy group, I think within time you will become stronger. Are you taking any type of medication? It sounds like it might be beneficial in your case. If you already are on meds, did you just start them recently, as they do take about 4-6 weeks to kick in. Remember to take one day at a time.
