So anxious

This is an anxiety and depression update, if you can’t tell by the title.

No real show notes or exposition for this one. I’m just talking about house-buying, anxiety, and depression here. I do touch on the fact that I have no idea where to start when it comes to seeing a doctor for it, so feel free to leave suggestions.

  1. Moving is difficult enough. Buying a house is SUPER stressful. Especially when you need a home that can accommodate a family but also (ostensibly) two business uses. Experiencing anxiety over that situation, even if you’re not prone to it, would be expected.

    Seeking professional help is a great idea. If you have health insurance, use their directory to find a general practitioner. Get established as a patient. (You’re not a bad person if you don’t have a GP; I didn’t have one for many years.) The GP may be able to prescribe your meds or the may refer you to a specialist.

    It’s normal to be apprehensive about anti-depressants or any other type of medication. If you start with one and find it’s hitting you wrong, switch to a different one. There’s lots of them and it’s likely one will help you with minimal (if any) side effects. Maybe meds aren’t the answer and therapy is. I’ve had several different therapists at different times in my life. It’s always been helpful.

    And while I’m not a professional therapist (or professional anything, really), I’m always around to talk. You know where to find me. 🙂 Good luck and DO take care of yourself.
