PLEASE listen to everyone here. Go to your doctor and get some medicine. You don't have to feel so bad and suffer so much. It's your brain chemicals and if you get them balanced out, life won't seem so hopeless. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you and it CAN be a good one.

You've come to a good place, good people, best advice.

You are not alone. It seems to me young people have a harder time than ever. The job market for one, expectations triggered by all that technology, as I see it. There is no time or ***** to develop an inner self. Do try to see a therapist because there is help and hope. Wishing you all the best.

I have these unbearable physical symptoms that no one can identify on a daily basis I've been through so many tests, this too me is a physical problem, not only a mental one. Everyone says it's anxiety but I have social anxiety, so when I'm home and relaxed there's no need for these problems. They plague me everyday and I don't understand.

The physical symptoms are real enough, no doubt, on one level. But the origins seem to be elsewhere, as the tests indicate. That powerful mind-body connection is what you want to explore.

Try to see a therapist who may prescribe some meds. and help you gain some insight into less obvious issues. We feel for you and hope for the best for you.

You do have a physical problem.  You have a brain problem.  The problem isn't about your mental ability to think, if that were the case, you could think loving and peaceful thoughts, and then life would be fun and normal again.  Although it is important to manage how you think, since negative thinking tends
to draw negative experiences, your brain will not repair itself due to a new set of positive thoughts.  People who are chronically  depressed or anxious have distorted brain sizes around the hippocampus. For you, when you were younger, you proabably experienced what you thought was a traumatic experience at the time as a child, and that experience stressed you out.  Although you eventually grew out of that fearful experience, your brain didn't.  Meaning the emotional stress from your childhood more than likely affected how your brain formed by the time you became an adult.

When you started  Effexor, which I guess was after high school, you were assisted by the medication to manage the distorted brain sizes. Once you got off, the Effexor, after five years, your brain returned to its dysfunctional state prior to the medication.  It was distorted from the earlier emotional trauma that occurred, during your growing up years.

If you really need to convince yoursef your brain is the culprit, and that your brain hasn't been responding like a  normal brain should, I suggest you get a brain scan or a brain MRI.  If done by the right doctor, the scan will show you where your brain is weak in size, and how distorted sections of the brain affect the brain's response rate.

Your bio states you live in New York.  You may want to goggle Amen clinic, since there is a center in that jurisdiction.  A competent brain doctor can do a MRI on your brain, and provide important information on the status of your brain, and the needed recommendatons to manage its distorted state.

So what do you intend to do about this?

NOTE: I'm not a doctor, and particularly not yours, so there may be factors I'm unaware of. Therefore all advice is of a general nature and you should consult your doctor before following any of it, especially before changing med doses.

Why do you choose not to take a benzodiazepine daily, like Valium, because you're afraid of dependency, but by not taking it, then you may choose to feel hopelessness , even suicidal?

Much as we might want to check out, we'd never do that to those we leave behind. So that is a given.

If the dark, heavy clouds never lift for you, there is the help with therapists, with meds as suggested. Do let us know how you are doing.

There is help out there!   Therapists can do a world of good, and your doctor can help you immediately.  Please call or go in to the ER and talk to someone.  There are medicines that can help you feel better fairly quickly, and therapy will help you stay feeling better.  Please.  Please get some help because you are a valuable person and your family and friends need you and love you- even if you can't see that right now.  What you are feeling is very typical of severe depression and anxiety- and there is help for you that is proven safe and effective.  Please update us on your condition.
