Lately I've gotten so anxious about everything to the point where I can hardly function. Does anyone have any tips on how to lower anxiety and depression when they get bad?

draw breath for 4 seconds
hold it for 4 seconds
exhale for 4 seconds

learned it from my therapist and it's the quickest and easiest way to manage anxiety. sounds simple and stupid but it works.

anyways yeah i'm right there with you brother.

i'm thinking now that medication is the only real way out of this.

PS why doesn't the built in extension work on this board.

I appreciate it, but honestly I'm not falling into the whole medication thing bc that'd just make it worse I think. But I'll try the breathing thing.

Sorry about that man, but I know that I can't do it myself. But whatever helps helps I suppose.

Firstly ask yourself why are you depressed. Focus on the why. Is it solvable? Can you face it? Can you get closure? Once you face the reason head on, it easier to be at rest with the reason.
