Well firstly try and remember that we're all in the same boat here and we understand, so don't feel alone, if I were you I'd most definitely go back to doctors and tell him about how your symptoms have become, it sounds like you need to be on the medication perhaps a while longer? tell him you need help with this, its not easy and it can be completely overwhelming, make an appointment, x

Yes counselling/therapy can work wonders for some people, a friend once recommended I read stuff written by "dr claire weekes" you can find things on youtube by her, she was an amazing pioneer in anxiety/panic related illnesses, its worth checking out her stuff, its a case of finding things that suit your individual needs, but this forum is also a great comfort too,especially when your feeling alone with your thoughts, it is possible to recover from this you know, try and keep that in mind :-)

Jjb30, this is serious. I hope you have seen your doctor today.

I've never heard of putting someone on a medication for 4 weeks

and then stop abruptly. No wonder you are having these psychotic episodes. This is not your fault. Do not do anything rash. Please let your doctor know your suicidal thoughts. I wish you well. Stay safe.

Hi, see, you got through the day :-) I'd say that being sick at work is quite a normal reaction because of your over sensitized and very anxious mind/body, just hang fire, see how you get on with the increase in meds doses, you've had bloods done too now so thats another step forward, don't forget, we're all here, we're all behind you 100%, talk here whenever you need too, you need to try and allow alittle time to pass and hopefully the increased meds will kick in, big hugs, :-)
