That’s great! It’s one step at a time. When you see yourself making improvements...then stop and commend your hard work. Keep pushing forward and don’t look back. I’m proud of you! Have a wonderful weekend friend! 🙏✌️

Tamka it's not your fault. Dealing with anxiety is a full time job in itself. One week on Prozac is not enough time for it to reach it's full efficacy levels. Give it a chance to work usually 4-6 weeks. Work closely with your doctor/therapist in your struggles. You will reach your goals, one day at a time, one step at a time. You have your future in front of you, don't obscure your dreams by tearing yourself down. Be positive, believe in your dreams, they will happen for you when the time is right. :) xx

Hi Tamka, I often feel like that, ending it. Mainly because of anxiety. It keeps kicking you. But then I remind myself that it would be very hard for the people who care about me. There are still 1 or 2 left lol.

I dont know what to say to you, other than if you are young, give yourself time to get better. Dont be hard on yourself. I really hope life gets better for you. Best wishes, Anthony

Is it really bad including my first name? I am not very familiar with posting on here. I included my first name because a pseudonym doesnt sound as sincere. Sorry if its inappropriate.

Tamka, Anxiety no matter how difficult is never a reason for ending it. Not only would it wipe out anxiety but everyone else who loves you and needs you in their lives. It would erase all your hopes and dreams for your son and your future. It would leave an emptiness in his life that could never be fulfilled.

I'm not saying to live in emotional pain for others, what I'm saying is there is help

to overcome anxiety. It's a learning experience in changing our thought habits that

tend to control us. Anxiety is nothing but a misguided thought that comes from our subconscious mind. The key is in accepting this as a lie and stop it in it's tracks.

When we don't, it continues to grow until we are overwhelmed with bodily symptoms. It can be helped with medication/therapy and eventually with you believing that you have the power to overcome these negative thoughts thought other tools and methods.

One day you will look back at these times as the most difficult time of your life. And in return you will be grateful that you didn't give up. :) xx

Tamka, I understand your loneliness and pain. I might not have had the trauma you've experienced in your life but I have lost 5 years of my life to agoraphobia that

I will never get back. Never stepped out of the house during those years, cried everyday from being scared and lonely. The one thing that I believed in was myself and that I was going to conquer this absurd way of thinking. I knew that the fearful thoughts were coming from my own mind. There was nothing outside or in a store that could hurt me. My own fears were making this "what if" thoughts come to reality.

I don't know if you stopped drinking on your own or are having any support since doing this. You've lost your crutch right now with alcohol and it may take time until you find another method in giving you strength.

I so understand people leaving in my life because they just didn't understand.

Using this site for encouragement and support will be helpful. I can only tell you by my own experience in that one day, when you are ready, you will get out to the store once again. That will be the beginning of your new life.

Next time we chat, I'll tell you more about the tools I used to get me out of the house and into the stores. What a day that was. :) xx
