It seems like in one of your posts you mentioned an illness that made you tired. But it also said depression can make you tired. One of your posts said you were diagnosed with major depression with panic disorder, and agoraphobia which net says is fear of
open spaces, crowds and leaving home.
You said, “I am not on any med consistently. I was taking Klonapin....and i have Ativan...thats it! I have a Psychiatrist but ive been a bit wishy washy about
what the actual problem is.” Klonapin net said is used for panic attacks and agoraphobia."
What do you think you are? What does the psy. think you are?
You said your functioning level is low and “I also think that Ive been leaning on alcohol a little too much to cope...I was never an overdrinker but with all the anxiety etc ...and just not enough things to fill the time. I always feel like I cant keep up.
You said, “My father in law is from a different generation..where the women must be in the kitchen...and even if Im doing smg productive I get to come home to his battering and bantering.” And “I watched my niece for 5 hrs yet I come home to emotional abuse” and “Im about
to tell my husband..”
I know it must be difficult for you to be in there with your father in law. How much longer is he going to stay?

Mayoclinic.org says: See your doctor if:
• You feel like you're worrying too much and it's interfering with your work, relationships or other parts of your life:
• Your fear, worry or anxiety is upsetting to you and difficult to control
• You feel depressed, have trouble with alcohol or drug use, or have other mental health concerns along with anxiety
• You think your anxiety could be linked to a physical health problem
• You have suicidal thoughts or behaviors — if this is the case, seek emergency treatment immediately.
Medications: Several types of medications are used to help relieve symptoms, depending on the type of anxiety disorder you have and whether you also have other mental or physical health issues. For example:
• Certain antidepressants are also used to treat anxiety disorders.
• An anti-anxiety medication called buspirone may be prescribed.
• In limited circumstances, your doctor may prescribe other types of medications, such as sedatives, also called benzodiazepines, or beta blockers. These medications are for short-term relief of anxiety symptoms and are not intended to be used long term.
