Hi all , I've been suffering anxiety / depression for a long time now. Mainly anxiety . I do take medication , so it's under control . As I'm deaf in both ears , I believe life is more stressful for me as I m having to conform to a hearing world . I can speak well and hear on the phone with he help of a hearing aide . I would love some advice on how to get my family to understand the best way to support me while I'm having anxiety . My daughter thinks that I bring it on with negative thinking and has a go at me while I'm having an attack of anxiety .
