Hiya all, I'm completly new to this page, and this site. I suffer with Anxiety and depression, since I gave birth in 2008. I have been hospitlised while my son was a baby, but I have had full custody since he was 18months old - he is now nealy 8!! I take Venaflaxine 175mg nightly. When I have a bad anxiety day, I can function to the point where I get my son to school but then I come home, head down, and lock myself indoors until I have to pick him up. I avoid all contact with the outside world. I still provide everything my son needs, but deprive myself of everything I need. I dont get many bad days now, but when I do, they last upto 5 days at any one time. I struggle to talk to my friends bout how im feeling as I dont want to be a burden (they have their own issues - tho I do jump if they are struggling regardless of how im feeling) So thats me, im hoping to lose weight and to feel better so I hopefully dont get to anxious whilst out and about x
