hi i also have a  anxiety disorder and stomach problems pain in my body also you should see a doctor about this to be on the safe side of things but i know that  anxiety can make you feel like your haveing a heart attack when you are haveing a anxiety attack remember that on a scale from 1 to 10 it can only reach 10 and it will go back down  when    haveing a anxiety attack  it  will make it worse if your afraid of it dont be afraid of it please let me know if you understand what i mean ok

There's only one thing I can suggest -- you're thinking of this all wrong.  Your job and your family are not the reason for your anxiety and depression.  Your way of thinking is.  I don't know why we think this way, but if we didn't, we would be able to handle these outside things.  Therapy can help you see this, though I don't know it will help you overcome it.  That's harder.  As for your stomach problems, this is an area doctors are often ill equipped to handle long-term.  Drugs often create permanent problems.  Sometimes you have to go that route, but you should at least try natural plant products that don't suppress acid by help to heal the system.  Some examples are DGL, aloe vera juice, but there are others.  Might help at least with that part of it, and it might not.

Hello....be encouraged. ...you can get through this....it may take time but know that by talking about it alone you will get better....I have experienced similar pains in my body as well and am considering accupuncture.   If it works I will let the forum know. Full disclosure I am a Christian so my faith in God knowing that he doesn't want me to stay like this helps me when I am really going through some rough days. I also have a wonderful wife and two children that want to make me get better also....hope this helps you...Godbless and keep pressing on!
