Hi, I'm having a really bad few days. I am unable to take most antidepressants as I seem to suffer such severe side effects and the two that I did get on with gave me heart problems! I have had some therapy which helped to a point but then it stopped as I could only get 6 weeks on the NHS. I have applied for some more but now its a waiting game. My GP feels he can't really do any more for me with regards to medication. Now I am having to go private to see a psychiatrist which is going to cost me £380 for the first consultation, Im at my wits end because my anxiety has sky rocketed, It come over me in waves throughout the day which is making me feel like I am going mad along with all the usual symptoms of anxiety attacks, the only thing I don't get is the heart racing as I try to breath through it. But I feel shaky, cold, sick, clammy and feel I need someone to help me as I feel like I am losing it. I have been crying a lot too, not sure if it the depression or anxiety making me cry. I feel that I am at my wits end. I lost my job at the beginning of this year because of the anxiety and depression. Has anyone managed to get there anxiety and depression under control and living a normal life again without the aid of antidepressants? If so please tell me how you have managed it. Thanks in advance. x
