My intentions are to be cheerful and uplifting and I do have a extroverted personality hiding behind this crap, but when you feel these gloomy clouds most of the day and basically feel like crying you almost lose control of your personality.
Now at this very moment I have some really important things to arrange but instead I'm avoiding them like a plague, lurking there feeling miserable and drinking vodka cocktail as clonazepam alone even in higher dosages doesn't seem to be cutting it.

But the most frustrating part is that despite all of my progress and developing coping techniques during the years dealing with anxiety and depression currently it seems that it's at its worst.
I tried phenibut like 6 years ago. It only worked once... I was completely dishinibited for a few hours. Than it stopped working. Withdrawal was awful. Never touched it again.

I know how you feel. Some time ago I could sit down, read a book, play a pc game and at least enjoy life a little. Now I am a total mess. I can't keep calm. I can't keep my mind off my problems.
