I had a situation a few months ago that triggered some pretty sever anxiety in my life. I have been dealing with it ever since. I have always had a low level of anxiety, but have always been able to deal with it pretty well. I am curious what helps others? I went to my Dr. and he gave me Ativan to sleep and Celexa. Was scared to start the Celexa after reading all the side effects but after a month I decided to try it. The first week was so awful with side effects I couldn't continue. Nausea, awful headaches, feeling completely off, dry mouth, blurred vision. I am under the care with an acupuncturist with treatment and herbs, which does help some. Taking Ativan occasionally to sleep. I am currently researching into therapy with a psychiatrist. Would love to connect with others to just chat and encourage each other during our bad times. Any advice on things that helped you would be greatly appreciated.
