I was forced into early retirement about 7 months ago after a 33 year stressful career in trading. My finances are sound but I have been overwelmed with anxiety and depression daily with no relief. My doctor in May said I have an adjustment disorder and I should go for counciling. My family is forbidding me because they know I will be put on meds and they don't want to deal with the long term effects. They want me to just fix myself. My symptoms are worse upon waking and don't reduce till 6 pm. Horrible thoughts, crying, upset stomach, racing heart, sweating, fear of the fear, you name the symptom I have it. No relief. Can I fight this myself over time? I am also dealing with the loss of self confidence, boredom, not knowing what to do with my time. I was extremely successful in my career and major power broker so to speak. Now I am a nobody. I surf the net constantly looking for answers. I am 58 years old. Any words of wisdom? Please Help
