Hard time

Hi everyone,

Wrote for the first time a couple of weeks ago and have been up and down since. Yesterday was probably my worst day of anxiety since this all started for me about six weeks ago. Tomorrow will mark 3 weeks on Wellbutrin. I don't know if I'm getting any better. I'll have some really good days, but then some really bad days. Is that normal? I'm trying to be patient but I'm starting to give up hope that this will get any better. I spent most of my afternoon and evening on the couch in anxious despair. Though I'm having some good days, the days that I'm having anxiety seem to be maybe getting worse? I'm really scared.

Things are always up and down. But that means the worst times can only get better. It's so hard, but you will find balance soon, keep pushing through x

I know how you are feeling. I have been like that before. All I wanted to do is sit on the couch and cry for days. I could not figure out what was going on. Be encouraged my friend, it does get better. It took me about a good 8 weeks or so to get adjusted to my medication. Have you thought about calling Dr. about your medication? It could be that it needs some adjusting.

Have you thought about seeing a counselor? or maybe even talk to a mentor or a friend willing to listen when you are feeling at your worst? To get me through I just had to focus on all the good days I did have and reflect on what made them good. Be proud of yourself for those good days and enjoy those good days. In time this will get better.

Thank you! I started seeing a counselor about a month ago.

That is awesome. I know that you will be ok. I know through pain, you find a significant amount of growth within yourself. You are enough just as you are. You are strong and courageous for reaching out for help. Remember, it's not how much you win in life, its the way you pick yourself back up after a fall and recover that matters. Proud of you.
