Things can get better

Hi guys im new to this site but have suffered with anxiety for 5 yrs since my first child was born i now have 2 children and over the years have found it not to be intense as it was i have learnt to cope and manage it in different ways. When my son was born (very traumatic labour ended up emergency c section under general :-( ) i wouldnt take medication for my depression and anxiety and after a while managed to overcome this by just telling myself i could do it and my son needed me. When i fell pregnant with my daughter i was soooo bad couldnt eat sleep or make sense of anything and was in my mind considering ending the pregnancy (selfish i know) i would never have thought about anything like that ever but at the time i did so glad i didnt though i got through that on my own no meds and when she was born after a couple of weeks i had some more anxiety and decided i needed help and started on citalopram helped for a while then didnt really see the point in taking them came off them and felt alive again i have recently had little bouts of anxiety especially when startung a new job which i lasted 2 days. It is hard but if you try and sray positive try and look forward to something it can get better i am nowhere as bad as i was and its purely fromppsitive thinking and thinking of my children thanx for reading guys xxxxx

Nice post Titch, it does get better eventually I agree!

With, without meds or other treatments, people have to choose what suits them, and we all have choice, it is just so hard to make one when we are ill. Steve


Couldnt agree more it is so hard to make decisions on which way route to go down ive had that dilemma many times, i think the worst thing about this horrible illness is not understanding why you feel like that. Im so glad it has eased for me i know im going to have bad days but i look forward to the good :-D thanx steve xx
