Sounds like a panic attack to me. I suffer from them and your symptoms are similar to mine.

Yes, that's how anxiety/panic can work. Unfortunately, for me the last week or so my thoughts are not my own. I just can't seem to get back to me.

I start thinking it's getting better than the next minute I'm questioning myself. I get so frustrated because two weeks ago this wasn't even a problem for me. Now, I feel like a totally different person.

Hi Beth,  have you made any decision on switching over to Paxil?  Just wondering.

Hi, today is day two with no medications. I feel better today than I have in over a week but I still don't feel normal. I basically feel "numb" does that make sense?

Hi Beth,  does your doctor know you stopped?  I'm glad  you feel better today, I'm just hoping that feeling will continue. Antidepressants tend to stay longer in your system than a tranquilizer.  See how you feel in the next several days.  Maybe you can do without the meds and work on your symptoms using other therapies. I wish you well.  This is the hardest time, trying to find what works best for you.  x

He knows I stopped the Lexapro but doesn't know that I didn't start the Paxil. Honestly, he seems just as lost as me. He's a pcp and I can't get in with a psychiatrist until 5-10. I've never been on meds. I feel lost but at least today I feel more hopeful than I have. Knowing what to do seems to be the biggest obstacle.

Definitely, you are in that lost period where  you don't know which way to turn. It will all fall into place.  Just hang on.  Seeing the psychiatrist on the 10th of May will give  you some direction.  Meanwhile, use the breathing techniques to calm yourself down as well as the meditation on YouTube.  The ones with audio and not just music.  Tune into what they are saying to you.  It can't hurt and it's free  :)

Continue feeling better   x

I've never used YouTube. Can you help me with that?

Beth, I'm not that computer literate but what I do is type in at the top of the page, YouTube/Audio Relaxation.  It should then come up with many selections that you can preview and pick out the one best for  you.  I hope someone else sees this and can help you out in case this doesn't work for you.   They are really great...
