New Day

Good morning all I've recently posted about my anxiety issues. Well today is my 6th day actually on my medication. I am feeling hopeful about this med as I am able to eat again and sleep without waking every other hour. I am able to get out of bed again and do things with little anxiety. The only anxiety I get is when I'm thinking that this is too good to be true. It's going to come back and smack me in the face. I'm trying to work on more positive thinking though. I hope we all will be able to have a better more productive day. Blessing , peace and love.

If I may ask what medication are you taking. I'm fighting a hard battle against anxiety and panic right now and any advice would be helpful

I am taking 10 mg of elivil it's an old medication but at this point I am just going with my doctor . I was in bed on and off for a month. Since then I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. My battle was taking medication. But I have a two year old son and I have to push everyday for him. I wish you the best of luck. Anxiety sucks. For sure. And I never knew the torment until I went through it.

Good, enjoy the day, and don't look over your shoulder too much to see if you are going to get worse.

Well, I'm taking a low dose of plain old generic Xanax (and low dose of generic Cymbalta to balance and prevent the depression from sneaking in) up rising and about an hour before bed. One morning after one of my PTSD nightmares changed, I woke up got dressed slowly, because the 24/7 heavy anxiety on my chest was gone. I didn't trust it and for a few days kept expecting Anxiety to be back, but it hasn't. Not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.

LET'S CELEBRATE TOGETHER !

I was prescribed Lexapro. I tried it twice once for 3 days another for 4. Each time I tried it it made me feel worse. My thoughts were racing I would get in my car to drive and I couldn't drive faster than 50 mph on highway. I'm not looking for a cure all. I know taking a pill won't fix all of my depression and anxiety. Sleep, good diet, exercise will also help but I'm so depressed those simple are difficult. Anyone been here?.

Don't get me wrong. I know a pill won't fix the underlying problems. Like I said I never know what the next day may be like. So I just take it one day at a time. I am all new to this anxiety thing . Believe me it's not a walk in the park. I wish we all could be cured at the drop of a dime but it's not the case. All I know is I take advantage of good days because I don't know what the next day will be like. I'm also seeing a therapist once a week now. I don't have things all figured out lol I wish. But all I can do if offer HOPE. sometimes it seems like there is none. But just keep holding on. Please . You got this

So glad that your feeling better. I'm going through medication changes right now and hate fearing if I will have side effects.
