I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right section but I just wanted to see if anyone else has been through a similar situation to me?- long story short I suffered from severe depression and anxiety a couple of years ago and was planning on killing myself. now 2 years later I am free of depression for over a year (yay!) and don't have too much anxiety anymore either. The last 2 years though since finishing education I've just stayed at home, too scared to get a job in fear I'll relapse. I needed to spend the first year recovering from that severe depression and the second year (the past year) I've been applying for jobs. Sometimes the reality of actually having a job hits me and I get so nervous worrying about how a job could trigger relapse. I know logically I can't know whether a job will be good or bad but going off past experience (lacking in confidence, bad experiences with friends, getting stressed or down easily) I worry it will be, and therefore make me have a depression relapse. What happened a couple of years ago was so horrible it's scared me for life I guess. Anyone else have this worry? How did you get over it/transition back into "the real world" after a huge break from it?
