I do know how you feel. I too suffer from a mix of symptoms. I'm 46 and have only just begun to address my depression, social anxiety, and other conditions. What I've noticed is that now that I,m actively dealing with my feelings, rather than stuffing them, I feel them more intensely.
So at least know that you are not alone. Do your best on a day to day basis. The past is gone, try to forget it. The future doesn't exist, try not to worry about
it. Live in the here and now as much as you can. Another thing I've found really helpfull is journaling.
Oh, by the way, please forgive my style of communicating, I certainly don't mean to try to tell you what to do. I simply want to validate your feelings and offer some insight. I wish you well.
