Hi everyone I'm new to this site. I'm 25 years old ,a wife ,and mother of a wonderful 2 yr old son. I've recently have been crippled by anxiety attacks that last mostly ALL DAY. The little energy that I have I make myself useful for my baby. I have a therapist and psychiatrist who are strongly suggestioning that I get on anti depressants and kolonopin .05 for now. Because this is so bad I've literally spent 30 plus days out of bed for only about 4-6 hours a day. I'm so overwhelmed that I don't like taking medication at all . Not even for a headache as I have a fear of being addicted to anything. That's a huge part of my anxiety. My support system is small because people just don't understand. This is a battle. One of the hardest yet. I don't know if I'll ever be able to be free again.
