Is there anyone on here that is battling through anxiety and depression without any medication? I have now been medication free for the past 2 months, I go to CBT and private counselling which yes does help time to time, but I can be so impatient I just want to be me again. I feel like there's a part of me missing and majority of the times I don't know who I am. I have just found out that a very close friend of mine as just had a nervous break down and is now suffering from anxiety and depression, he is on citalopram and he said first two weeks was the worse weeks of his life, even my best friend who is his wife said it was scarey seeing him go so bad from the medication but the docter said to stick with it. Anyway by the fourth week he started to notice difference, he is now so much better and is laughing and can feel his old self again. I went to the doctors on Friday and I have still got my prescription as I am in 2 minds on what to do, I was really bad for 2 days as I panicked on avin this prescription in my bag, I was really depressed for 2 days and anxious, as I've had this medication before and I was really bad,but if my friend was really bad then it must be normal, but iam scared as I don't handle things like this well so iam trying to see if I can try and deal with my anxiety and depression medication free. Is there any one on here that is on there way to recovery or recovered from anxiety without medication...is it actually possible? Xx
