I'm a 24 years old mother. Who's been dealing with anxiety and depression for a little over a year now. I have good days but on my bad days they can get pretty bad. It's like I lose all sense of reality and control of myself. I feel my body start getting hot and my heart is about come out. As soon as I stand up it feels like i just might drop dead. I feel like staying at home being in room would just be best for me. It's hard to focus at work sometomes when you feel like everyone is staring at you or talking about you. I've lost count on how many times I've take myself to the er to make sure I'm not dying. I'm just tired of living this way. I feel like getting up and just running. I don't know who's the real me anymore. It makes me feel like every one looks at me of crying wolf and being crazy. I just wanna feel normal again.

I know how you feel as well, are you on any meds?

It's been about 3 weeks since I've started them again m. There was time where I stop them completely. But that only made things worse. So my docto told me I need to be Consistent with them until they can start taking me off. So I only take them once everyone morning as soon as I get to work. My anxiety is still there but I'm able To handle to better. plzmybabies

if you don't mind me asking, what are you on. I've been having a hard time finding something to actually work.

Right now I'm taking Zoloft for depression and anxiety and diazepam for my panic attacks. It's only been a few weeks that I've been on them. But the diazepam does help me calm down. Made me drowsy at first but now I'm able to take it in morning before work and be fine the rest of the day. plzmybabies

never tried diazepam before

plzmybabies you should look it up , it helps me. N ask you're doctor about it

plzmybabies what are you taking right now ?

right now I am taking bupropion sr 150 and 1 mg kolonopin, both at night. It's been 7 weeks and he wants to change me to 20 paxil and 3 zyprexa and I want to see if WB is going to work. It is the 1st one listed on my genesight test.

Chazzyc how do you find yourself dealing with it?

Chazzyc in reply to Julieann420

Herbs and hot baths work most of the time to calm my anxiety id say 8 out of 10 times. But sometimes I just try to sleep it off, which doesn't work well and is not productive.
