Major Depression Disorder

When I turned 40 I experienced what I call a “mini breakdown” defined that way because I could not function … I couldn’t work or parenting was hard but again I attributed much of this to the fact that for almost a year I was experiencing terrible anxiety and panic attacks whereby I was treated for the same and would try one anxiety med after another.  Thankfully I ended up with a great Psychiatrist who immediately realized that I had just blown a lid to a major depression, masked completely as anxiety.  I got on Effexor and did almost 3-1/2 weeks in an intensive outpatient program but then, again, returned to be what I considered to be a normal, highly functioning adult.  Although I was trying to bring some balance into my life.
