I have had anxiety for about a year and a half now and I have had off and non differing depression since my first year of high school, (I am an upperclassman in college now). All of my depression differs but recently it has been centered around the same thing.. That I am not what i should be. My anxiety has lost me my position of an officer candidate in the United States Marine Corps. This is something that has been my number one dream since i was 7 years old. And since it has happened I just have the feeling that this will be a regret that will stay with me to my grave. My depression hit the worst when that happened, and some time before that, my friend was murdered. I have also been having some trouble with my friends and the girls I date. I like to show people that nice guys still exist, and i will stop what I am doing to help any of my friends. On dates I try to be the perfect gentleman, but no matter how things go, in the end I get completely screwed over and that has been hitting me hard.
I talk to a therapist regularly for my anxiety but I only sometimes bring up the depression. But does anyone on here have any advice on how to deal with this type of thing? I try to stay away from perscription drugs for both of these conditions.
