Reaching out for support!

My name is Mo. I’ve had anxiety for about ten years. I also have had emetophobia, or an extreme fear of vomiting, for about ten years as well. I was on 20mg Celexa for a year-ish and it worked wonders. Unfortunately I had a breakdown around Christmas after missing a month of medication and getting copper toxicity poisoning from a medical implant. Since then I have been experiencing weekly if not daily panic attacks lasting between half an hour and two hours. I took a semester off of college to recuperate. I’ve had many ups and downs but the last few weeks have been better as I’m going to a wonderful therapist and my Celexa dose has been doubled. Anxiety is still a very big part of my life and I’m still experiencing panic attacks, so I’m looking for support and also for people that I may be able to support myself!

I do see a psychologist specialized in anxiety, but I haven’t even thought about self hypnosis CD’s! Thank you for the ideas and the support❤️

Your welcome try ebay or amazon for the cds ! Do you find that when it gets dark early at night in the wintertime that it affects your mood. Alot of people find this happens ! Take care all the best david😀

Oh yes. It’s worst at night when it gets dark. I can’t wait for summer.
