I have a really long list of issues in my life: obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, 2 major phobias (one for needles, blood and stuff like that, and the other one for being sick in public) and also depression with some suicidal thoughts.
I'm married, but my husband does not know how bad is my depression, because we have a huge fight one time when he said to me that he prefer not to know about it. He changed is mind after some days, but I still can't speak about it with him.
I don't work, so I'm home all day everyday. The only time I get out is to go at the grocery store and to walk my dog.
I feel useless most of the time. I don't want to get up in the morning, because I have no goals in my life. I'm also really alone, I don't have any friends at all.
I was thinking of trying hypnotherapy, but I don't know if it will work for me. Also I'm really afraid of find myself in an uncomfortable situation (my anxiety rise up just thinking about it).
Thank you to anyone who will respond to me.
For years I had anxiety. After a major heart attack i learned that it can be a symptom of heart issues. (even at your age). You need to get out and do something. Sitting around the house all day is not a a good remedy for depression. Set some goals decide on something that you want to accomplish and jump in. It's hard but a lot of what I hear you saying is tied to your life style. I too am afraid of needles. Hypnotherapy is like pills it is a temporary fix you still have to work on the issues you have. I think if you get out and find something that means something to you and you pursue it - I am willing to bet the anxiety, panic attacks, depression, etc... will improve.
I assure you you have value. There are people in this world that care about you even though we do not know you simply because you are a unique creature in this universe. There is only one you. Please let me know if you are feeling better.
