Hi all hope all is well with everyone. I'm doing ok went to my group on wedsnesday it went ok a little nerve racking going out to a restaurant but it went ok. The restaurant started getting busy so my nerves got worse but we got out of there thank goodness. The next day during my session with my therapist she said they all had noticed I was getting nervous so they were all worried about me which felt nice. But im under a huge amount of stress right now due to my mom and her pulling her stunts and my mother in law pulling hers. My therapist says I have to get to a point where I say no simply but I get a lot of guilt with that so it's something I really have to work on. So due to the stress of these situations my depression is coming back on really strong which worries me cause I feel trapped like there is no way out. And I hate that feeling hoplessness is creeping back in i'm trying to be strong it's just hard sometimes. Anyway take care til next time...April

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.
