This is my first time talking about my anxiety publicly, although it's still behind a computer screen I do feel a lot better speaking. But I stumbled across this website whilst researching and figured it could be of some help.
I've been suffering from anxiety for the past few years, struggled on but it got that bad I had to go to the doctors and have been subscribed Citalopram (20mg) and counselling.
Today was my first day on the tablets and the side effects where horrible, I've had no appetite all day, been dizzy, sweating, headache and nearly passed out when I went out earlier, it was so scary.
I guess I'm just using this as somewhere to post, my boyfriend doesn't really seem to understand, and I don't want to badger him or worry him with what I'm going through. As I live away from home too I don't want to worry my mum.
