I feel like there are days where I have control on my anxiety and then other days it just takes over. I’m trying my best to not let it get to me…idk if it’s because of my BC but I’ve been trying to meditate, journal and practice breathing exercises but it’s been tough.

I’m in the same boat. I’ve made tons of progress, I’m in a better place than ever in my overall mental health, but still just getting those random episodes.

Anxiety is not always predictable in its presentation. Talking to a professional can help you figure out the connections.

How do you know if/when it's time to switch careers?
My current job has a solid progression to make more money, but it takes years to get there. I make about $70k right now. As a data engineer/analyst. Primarily work on the engineering side, but I went to school for analytics. I never saw myself doing the engineering role, but when I first took it, it was a great start to my career.

I was offered a new position mainly in management in a completely different industry for $100k and bonuses.

Has anyone tried EMDR to deal with childhood traumatic experiences? I'm not talking about things like physical abuse etc. but due to separation from parents at a young age which was driven by circumstances and decisions parents made.

Appreciate any EMDR experiences.

Has anyone dealt with bad agoraphobia and depersonalization? A few weeks ago, I had a massive panic attack in public after a night of heavy drinking + a nitro cold brew.

I think I’m having a mental breakdown. I really have tried hard to deal with my depression (therapist/meds/exercise/etc.) but I’m at the end of my rope. I’ve only been at my job for a little under a year, so I don’t feel like I can tell anyone or try and take leave.

I’m literally just crying at my computer for several hours a day and responding to emails without generating any work product. This isn’t who I am.

Has anyone dealt with this before? What did you do?

I have really been working on myself to start dating and I met someone who seemed pretty cool, but within two dates dropped some massive baggage. His ex was pregnant and it turned out after it was born he found out it wasn’t his. I feel like he hasn’t really dealt with it, and he’s made some really uncomfortable comments about women that are slowly waving red flags, even though he doesn’t say anything directly about me. Would you have a conversation or run?

Stuck in one of my bad cycles the past few weeks, have been getting progressively worse. I just completely shut out everyone in my life and become isolated in my own mind, which is a scary place for me to be, truly terrifying what my mind comes up with.

What makes me more depressed is not understanding why I am like this. What on earth do I have to be depressed about? I’m extremely successful, house, beautiful wife, all going well for me. I know this a rhetorical question but it just eats me.
