I am 60 years old, and have been suffering from depression and anxiety for my entire life. Until not so long ago I would have never admitted it, and even now it is really hard for me to talk about it.I am taking 40 mg of Prozac daily for the depression, but take nothing for the anxiety. I go for my first counseling appointment on Monday, I am hoping that helps. And, I don't even know why I am typing this, just for some support I guess

I am new here, too. I have only recently been fighting depression, so I am not sure how to cope.

I would be here if you need to talk or vent.
