Depression is awful. I reckon I spent about half the time depressed, not severely but enough to interfere significantly with my life?

May I ask why you were doing a sleep study? I've done two for my sleep apnoea.

Someone said :
I experience generalised anxiety pretty regularly which despite the physical reactions and the mental reflections - still puzzle me on a level.

Like I started a job 15 months ago, which is based in the educational and job activation system - since them I have increased FETAC/QQI qualification achievement by 512% and employment progression by 92% - have reduced overall costs by 55.7% - Which I think is pretty decent.

I have a financial and educational inspection on Tuesday and Thursday and to be honest I have the pure horror of panic and worry of having not signed and stamped some form somewhere. In all good and fair reason I should feel pretty solid in my employment but nope, I’ve lost hours of sleep and will most likely pop in on Sunday (as the other half is away) to go through files to make sure they are well rounded.

Anxiety utterly sucks - usually when it arises I can just refocus, but when it comes to something that corresponds with income and the options that brings - its hard to side track.

What do you do to rechannel it?

Worry is just preparation for what lies ahead and when its starts to loop try and break it by concentrating on something you like doing, which works for me

Worry is very different to anxiety, worry is rational (sometimes), anxiety is not.

I never saw my self as an anxious person until last year when I was constantly and subconsciously worried about something going wrong at work and the accompanying feeling of being in adequate and valueless. It was horrendous.

Anxiety can be an extremely debilitating form of mental illness.
Doctors usually prescribe short term or long term meds to help the suffer deal with the problem.
Many people prefer to use the meds short term as they can become addictive, and easily relied on.
I used the meds until I felt able to cope, then stopped and now use headspace plus meditation.
Other people I know use the meds long term, life with extreme anxiety is horrendous and those awful panic attacks are mentally draining.

It is awful and worse still its insidious. This won't be popular to say but its my experience so fack it. I think for some people at least depression can grab a hold subtly because it is insidiously attractive to the sufferer (again only in certain circumstances). The misery arrives and it seems, at least initially to offer answers to a lot of things and it comforts you in a weird damaging way. And it is above all else in my experience subtle. Even after I attempted suicide the first few times I didn't consider myself depressed, in fact I was still looking down on those who said they were depressed. I hadn't the capacity at that point to admit that it was depression that both drove me to that horrible act and to look down on those who had realised they were depressed.

Sleep apnea is one of the reasons.
