Find a trustworthy therapist, one who's not calling every authority to red flag you. A peer support group for your occupation or veteran status is a good place to start.

"It's every freedom-loving individual's duty to lie to the government."

Tell me about it. Been dealing with it for most of my life.
Meds don't work, therapy doesn't work. I've basically accepted that, for me, it's to be endured, not treated.
I hate offended people. They come in two flavours - huffy and whiny - and it's hard to know which is worst. The huffy ones are self-important, narcissistic authoritarians in love with the sound of their own booming disapproval, while the whiny, sparrowlike ones are so annoying and sickly and ill-equipped for life on Earth you just want to smack them round the head until they stop crying and grow up.

Anxiety was a thing for me while I was dealing with the death and estate of my mother. It was by far worse in the morning. I could deal with it but it wasn't pleasant. If it was a permanent situation for the rest of my life I'd already have seen a doctor. But, it wasn't things returned to normal after her estate was closed. Knock on wood. Hopefully, I'll never have to deal with it again.
OH, Bonnie McMurray!

A great story about depression involving a local FB. Great read. You should also watch the linked video.

Last year at this time, my father was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He is now on hospice. Earlier this year, one of my kids was diagnosed with Epilepsy. Late June, I got diagnosed with a life-altering disease that will slowly take me. It's been a crappy year. I've learned you can't ignore depression as it won't go away.

I echo others recommendations to make an appointment with a psychologist or psychiatrist. I recently heard a great quote that is applicable for this thread:
Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity

I appreciate and am grateful for all of the feedback and stories offered in this thread.
Thank you, all.

Sorry to be a little late to this post and to your struggles. I agree with others who have said that there is a stigma with men being able to talk about things like this and where they can get help.
I myself have been working with a therapist for a few years on anxiety and confidence issues, while I still have some ways to go, it has definitely helped.
I know from past posts that you and I are in the same area. My therapist is a bit specialized given my profession, but they are very in tune with other providers in our area especially those who work with veterans like yourself. Please feel free to reach out to me at the email address in my profile if I can be of any assistance to you.
Thanks and God bless.
Just checking in to see how you’re holding up.
