Light at the end of the tunnel

Hi, I'm new to this site and just wanted to write something positive. I'm suffering with a bad case of anxiety at the moment but the one thing that keeps me going is that tomorrow is a new day and I try and keep positive though it is hard.

I can relate to a lot of the stories on here and it's good to know that I'm not the only one suffering.

However, I always try and make a joke of the anxiety and truly believe that there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

Then again, that might have something to do with the effects of the tablets that the doctor gave me! Lol

  • Hi and welcome to the site,and its lovely to hear a positive story.I lol at the effects of the tablets bit XX

  • Hi what tablets are you on , maybe i could get some from my doctor ,they might help me get though the days ... x

  • I'm currently on pregablin though I don't know if that has kicked in yet or what it is supposed to do but I'm also taking Fluoxetine.

    Noticed my panic attacks aren't as severe with the Fluoxetine but still can't go shopping by myself, drive on the motorway or be around loads of people. However, I don't spend all day thinking about anxiety or worrying about it too much.

  • Hi

    I can understand you.on my bad days I ;-)always hope that tomorrow is gona be better.I m on pregabalin too.And I think is wicked!sorry but I just wonder if you get the pregabalin through nhs or privately.cause my gp is refusing to prescribe it to me on nhs prescription.i have to pay for it privately with my psychiatrist prescription.;-)

  • I get it through the NHS. I did an anxiety course, counselling, propranolol and then fluoxetine so I think I ran out of options.

  • Hi Davjon,

    It so nice to hear someone who thinks of Anxiety the same as i do, i always say to myself, tomorrow is a new day and i wont feel like this :) Although yes it is sometimes hard, when you feel so frightened, and it is all you CAN think about.

  • Hi Davjon, i've been suffering anxiety and depression just about a month now the doc put me on Propranolol that has helped the heart racing and citalpram for depression it will be 2 weeks this week and i'm feeling much better but i must admit we will have good days and bad days hope you feel better soon x

  • hi am i normal, i have sent all day in bed as i could not handle the thought of being up and alone in my flat with the anxiety and depression all day this is the 2nd time i have done this ,this week im scared i not coping well does anyone esle do this or do i need to see my doctor about it ..its not nice for me i am so alone have noone here ..paula.

  • Hi Paula, I didn't want to get out of bed today or yesterday but I had to really push myself. Once up though got better throughout the day. You're as normal as the rest of us, anxiety and depression affects us in different ways. First thing, go and see the doctor and see what help he can give you. Try and find out if there is a help/support group in your area, I find talking to people with similar problems helps me.

  • Yes, good days and bad but on the bad days I think that if I can just get through it then I'll be better tomorrow.

    I need to get out more, at the moment I'm trying to get myself calm in the house (no anxious moments) then build from there.
