I’m sorry you’re having a difficult time. It sounds like you recognise you’re suffering with anxiety and depression. Please, PLEASE don’t feel as if you’ve ‘lost the battle’ by taking medication. Would you think the same way if you had to take tablets for diabetes??? Just because your condition isn’t physical it doesn’t make it any less real.
If you start on medication you may well find you can actually think a bit clearer to be able to resolve any problems you have within your life. Depression is often described as a grey fog on the brain, so no wonder you’re not able to think straight! I think you should make an appointment with your gp and have a chat with them. Things can only get better, and I’m sure with the right help they will.
