Sick and tired

I'm 48 and I've struggled with depression,anxiety,OCD,and panic all of my life. I can remember being in preschool having a panic attack (even though I didn't know what it was at the time). I'm finally on meds that help with it a bit with it but I'm nowhere near where I need to be. I worry about my health constantly. I think some of the things I worry about are so stupid and I wonder if anybody else feels the way I do. I am struggling financially and I am raising my grandchildren and it's so hard sometimes. I constantly worry about me getting sick or that I can't pay my bills and won't be able to take care of them. What can I do? I'm so tired of fighting this. Any suggestions on a good med for this?

Hey Billesue,

Sorry you are having such a rough time. Life is tough dealing with depression plus the struggles you are going through also. I commend you for raising your grandchildren. I am wondering if you can check and see if you can get financial help to raise your grandchildren or maybe you already are Billiesue. I will pray for you.

I am fighting my way back after a few weeks of a very low period. I just shut myself off from everyone, it wears me out trying to deal with people, putting on a happy face and pretending to be happy. I have to fight this depression everyday and have since being a child and I get so sick of fighting also but we have to keep trying.

Billiesue hang in there hopefully things will work out for you and I am here and others will be sending you encouragement also through this site.

I take Cymbalta 60 mg twice a day and it helps but I still have to work at this everyday, even wit meds but this med has been the best so far.

Please keep in touch and let me know how you are doing.



Thx for making me feel better. Ive been trying to feel better but its hard. I take prozac and risperdal. They help more than any other meds have.
