Okay.. This is my first time ever doing anything like this..  I'm have been feeling depressed, sad, worried and terriablly sick.  Latley i have been having these recurring thoughts about my so "called friends" and all the messed up things they have done in the past to me and  vise versa.. And when i  have these thoughts I feel angry, sad, resentful, anxity-pretty much revengeful.  I dont like this one bit I wanna get over everything in the past but cant come to terms of why I get these hurtful rememberences.. I'm 24 now and all this has happend when i was 16yrs old??  I feel like im going insane whats wrong with me...Why cant i just let go and forget/forgive??  ALSO my relationship of 7years... okay we've been on and off-it seems like we should pretty much forget it and move on but we both just hang on to each other cause it seems like the right thing to do.. I love him alot I do but with all these emotions running through my head I really dnt know if I can  stand to losing everything I have...  School-work-friends-boyfrind... I need help shakehead

Welcome to Healing Well!
I'm not sure any of us could say whether it is anxiety or depression causing your symptoms. They are so similar that you really need a professional to make that determination after a through interview, taking your history & asking specific questions and such. I would encourage you to try to find a therapist in your area so you could find out what's causing you to feel this way & to start to work on healing your past so you can look forward to your future.

I can understand why you would be nervous about leaving your past behind you. It is hard to choose the unknown future over a known past -- even when our past was horrible. Based on what you've written, it sounds like you're not really benefiting in any way from staying connected with your old friends or your on-again-off-again boyfriend. I imagine you would be much happier trying to find friends who share your current goals & values. Maybe you could try going to some new places to start to meet new kinds of people -- volunteering, park district activities, local intramural sports teams, crafting groups, toastmasters clubs, religious groups, civic groups, etc. Just start trying new things & see what you like. The upside is that even if you don't like the activity, you might meet some new & wonderful friends. :)

Please keep posting here. The members are wonderful & very supportive. I'm sure others will be along to welcome you shortly.

There is a fine line between depression and anxiety. They both go hand in hand. If you haven't as of yet, you might want to post this in the anxiety/panic forum as well. You might get more responses that way from persons who have had similar issues like you. Welcome to healingwell.com. You have come to the right place for support and help. Hope you get to feeling better and keep posting to let us know how
you are doing.

Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am Kitt and I have had Anxiety and Depression for over 26 years.  I agree that depression and anxiety frequently go hand in hand. 

With medication, therapy and a lot of support from so many over the years I have learned to accept my dx and to keep moving forward with my life.  You cannot go back and change the past so learning to let go is your best choice.

I agree with the others, the best place for you to start would be with your physician and from there perhaps therapy. 

Coming here and talking with us was a wise thing for you to do as sharing our problems helps lighten our load.

Gentle Hugs
