Dealing with Anxiety and Depression
What is wrong with me? I am suddenly anxious and depressed. Why am I feeling this way? Am I out of my mind? Am I dying? What is going on?
Hi. This is Dr. Michael Bogart. Maybe you have felt this way. Maybe you have asked these very questions…
I am making a series of videos on anxiety (you can watch the first three videos below on this page), because it seems to me that more people than ever before are experiencing anxiety, depression, and emotional struggles. I am a fellow anxiety sufferer —since July of 2020 (you can read about my experience by clicking here). But, I am happy to say, that I have recently begun to recover. So I want to offer my experiences and insights for any who might be helped.
Anxiety can be a lonely experience, but it doesnt have to be.
If you or someone you know has these struggles with anxiety, panic attacks, or depression, I want to help. Join my journey of surviving anxiety and depression, and learn how we can cope, survive, and even thrive.
If you would like to watch the remaining four videos in this series, or would like to talk, please complete the contact form and you’ll have instant access to the videos. Please note, this is not intended to be taken as medical advice.
My Experience with Anxiety and Panic Attacks
It started with me feeling like I was in hell. I can tell you exactly when it started: July 3, 2020 at around 3:00 am. I had gotten up to do my usual bathroom trip and, as I was falling back asleep, my mind was drifting onto various thoughts and past events. Suddenly I was fully awake in utter terror, feeling like I was alone, unloved and completely unable to make personal contact with anyone.
