I struggle with depression and I think anxiety. It has to do with my job. I am 48 and I make $13.50 an hour and I don't get a lot of positive feed back from my boss. I feel trapped and my chest feels tight with anxiety. I am on effexor for depression and it helps but I am still struggle. I feel incompetent. I have a lot of good in my life but my emotions feel depressed and anxious. I am interested in any coping tips or ideas any of you may have. I never was clinically depressed until age 40. I have been battling ever since. The anxiety is current and job related. I don't know where to go or what to do except keep working to provide for my family. I don't have the money, the motivation, or the drive right now to go to college...I do have an Associates degree....I could list all the good things about my life right now....and I keep a thankful journal.....but I still struggle with these mental issues....it helps to hear your input...thanks everybody.
