Thank you and Merry Christmas to you too. I love reading your posts, and your replies to people are always positive, you inspire me to stay strong. x

Your kind words mean so much, thank you! I’m afraid that my strength is slipping from me now as it gets dark. I miss my kids, I miss my Mom and family who all live so very far away. I need to stay strong and be thankful for my many blessings. I’ll be counting them soon!

We used to walk the ridges and scree run down on the scree, (Loose Stones) That all ended in my mid twenties

Struggling here too, Mama. Just trying to be as positive as I can. Dr's appointment tomorrow to start new meds for anxiety.

in reply to HappyThinkin

Oh Happy! I hope that things go well for you at the docs! Please be hopeful that the 2 of u will get it right with the meds. I know how frightening it is when its trial by error. If you like and trust your doc, then feel encouraged that you will strike that balance! I’m pullin for you and I’ll be sending positive thoughts your way! I wish for you peace and relief from your anxiety! You certainly aren’t alone! I hate anxiety! good luck friend!

Thank you! I don't know if I like my doctor. She's kind of rough and pushy but I trust her. Last time I told her that Lexapro was making it worse for me. Increased anxiety and depression, insomnia, dark thoughts etc. She gave me more meds and told me to stick with it. Then went on vacation. The on call doctor took me off of Lexapro after hearing how I felt. So I am not sure how today will go. She might yell at me for discontinuing the med. I dont know. Im a little scared. Any advice?

in reply to HappyThinkin

Yes! There was a reason the on-call doc took you off of Lexapro... ask her what she thinks that reason was?? Dear, if ANY doc is rough, pushy, and would potentially yell at you for following her replacement’s instructions, well... bs on that. I would be outta that office so fast it would spin heads! There are so many smart, compassionate docs out there that I hate to see u fret about this one. Clearly she’s not listening to you , or ignoring which is much worse. You’ve tried this drug and feel strongly that its hurting, not helping you. She needs to hear those words. Maybe you two can work things out, but I already don’t like her. I’m sorry that you’re going through this.... its gotta be so tough. I wish you didn’t have to deal with trusting/or doubting ur doc. Its scary because you are seeking professional help and kinda being jerked around. You’re not alone friend. I am dealing right now with totally messed up meds. My doc just keeps piling them on me.... I’m switching docs myself right now, so i know how these meds/docs can really affect our lives. Stick up for your concerns! If she ignores them, well i would say adios!! ( and dang it, YOU’RE paying her salary). I wish you healing and peace in your ♥️ heart. I’m sorry that this is worrying you. I’m right next to you walking the same walk! Please let me know.. pm or however, how things go! I do care! a lot! you go girl!!

What meds are you trying out?

Lexapro worked on the first try for a couple of years so that's why the doc wanted me to stick with it. Second try, disastrous. I couldn't take it. She gave me Seroquel for sleep and Ativan and Proponalol for anxiety. Seroquel did not work just made me drowsy (5 hours to fall asleep). Ativan works bit Im afraid to take it all the time. So I am mess. I hope she has a different plan for me today. Praying!

Happy!

Been thinking about you today and hoping that your appointment went well! It’s none of my business, but I just wanted to make sure that you’re ok!! Hoping it was!! Be well!! ❤️

Hello Friend,

Appointment went well. Dr put me temporarily on Lithium to treat my acute anxiety and depression. Then she'll add on antidepressants as things get stabilized. I was terrified of taking it but last night went fine. I can't believe it got to this point. Im praying it will kick in and I can get on something more sustainable. Thanks for checking in. How r you doing?

in reply to HappyThinkin

I’m glad things went well for you! Give the med a try right? Whatta you got to lose?? I made an appointment with a new doc! been with this one way too long! all he does is throw another pill at me! 😡... so I’m hopeful, as you should be! 🤞🏻🤞🏻2019 is gonna be a great year for u... believe it!

Wow... it's majestic.

Thank you for sharing x
