Hi.   I am new to this site and hope very much that I can find some peace and help with handling my panic / anxiety attacks.  I have been diagnosed with depression/anxiety and am taking Wellbutrin and Zoloft.  Sometimes I wish I could take something which would just shut the emotions off so I could just get through the day without tears or panic.  I am approaching 50 yrs old and find myself wishing my life would have taken a different turn.  I think I am just burned out at my current job which I have had for the past 26 yrs.  I am very good at my job, just have no interest in it anymore, not to mention it has become a very negative and toxic workplace.  However, I cannot leave there until I can find something else.  Since I am not big with change, I want to find something I can enjoy and love going to work.  I think I am a postive person, although it is difficult to keep that up when your environment is not.  Anyway, thanks for listening.  Kai

Hi Kai!

Welcome to the A/P Forum. If you want peace then you came to the right place with lots of great people and resources :) I'm sorry that things are becoming stagnant with you. Life can feel that way sometimes especially dealing with both anxiety and depression. It also does not help when working in a less than desirable work environment after spending so much of you life their. Stay with us and you will have the peer support that you need right now. Also check out our Depression forum. . . Many more great folks over there too :)

Hope things start looking up!
Take care and have a wonderful day! . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Hi Kai!

I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you on your first visit to Healing Well! To help you get the most out of the Anxiety and Panic Forum please take the time to browse our threads.

Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. People with health conditions, as well as their friends and families find support groups to be a valuable resource and get confirmation that their feelings are "normal", educate others, or just let off steam. IMHO joining a support group is joining a family.

Welcome to the family
