Does it ever get better?

I’ve been suffering from unbearable anxiety and mild depression since January of this year and it just seems to be getting worse. I’ve been going to therapy and I’ve been 50 mg of Zoloft for 5 weeks now but I still feel unmotivated and anxious. I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. I’m just so tired. I’m exhausted.

I could some words of encouragement. It’s getting so hard to stay positive and see the light at the end of the tunnel …

Whatever the merits of these writers – and Handke is certainly a controversial …

Apple iPhone SE 2 pricing, specs, colors revealed by top analyst

Mixer co-founders Matt Salsamendi and James J. Boehm both left the live streaming company over the past two weeks, at a time when the service is undergoing some of its biggest changes to date.
