Tips for Managing Anxiety/Depression?

I hope you are well. 

I am looking for advice on how to manage mental health, specifically anxiety and depression.

I've suffered from these illnesses on and off over the past few years, but I've entered into a particularly dark mood over the past few weeks. This weekend pretty much all I did was lie on the couch and cry. I feel hollowed out, I have no drive within me, I don't feel like doing anything, I feel hopeless about the future. 

I think that one of the causes of my despondency is the frightening future we're facing in the wake of Covid. Biden's mandate on Thursday really shook me to the core. All weekend I was fretting about being shutout from society, unable to access my bank accounts and support a future family because vaccine passports seem inevitable to me. 

I've been praying but God just feels so far away right now. 

Are you guys feeling similarly? How are you coping? Is it just me? Any thoughts are appreciated. 

St. Dymphna, pray for us!

God bless,


P.S. I have contacted professionals who can help me, so that's taken care of. I guess what I'm interested in is if anyone else is feeling similarly and how they are coping and planning for the future.
