Re: should i swap???

That's so heart warming to read Lauz, well done and with such a positive attitude you might be able to kick this bad habit for good.

Re: should i swap???

Thanks TJ. I decided to come off the meds made me feel so much worse, and not just for the short term "adjustment" period, but for months. I wasn't depressed before taking them and I certainly hadn't had any thoughts of not wanting to be alive anymore either, I really did give them plenty of time to work, and I know from previously recoving well with meds that when they work, they work really well, and relatively quickly (for me anyway), but not this time. It was a really hard decision to stop taking the meds, and I too feared that I would never be back to normal (mentally), but touch wood, I'm almost there.

My GP is convinced that there is something "organically" wrong (i.e. something is out of whack that is cause the anxiety, such as my hormones) because it wasn't/isn't a perminent state, but comes in waves and cycles but I honestly don't know if we'll ever get to the bottom of it.

Thanks Mr W, it's good to feel good. I'd forgotten who I was for such a long time, it feels like I'm finally getting me back - onwards and backwards
For every day we suffer, there's a day of joy coming our way so tally up your bad days and see how much joy is yet to come.

Re: should i swap???

Morning, How are you Laura and Nicola today?glad you had a nice day ww and are feeling better, Wow lauz what agood brave post. Also how are you Pink, Angel and Sam.
I cant wait for these relaxation classes to start as I defo need something to stop the early morning screaming eebie jeebies. trouble is they last all day sometime. No point in ringing the duty officer as she wont let me speak to the shrink and suggests stupid things that any one with bad anxiety couldnt possibly do

Re: should i swap???

Hi Joy - yes I am here! sorry your anxiety is still there - don't even think of ringing those stupid duty workers - more change of winning the lottery than seeing a shrink through them! I have nothing more about my complaint. We'll see!

My anxiety is bad but it's the depression I feel is holiding be back with being on no meds - just glad when I see him next week! but crying all the time and don't want to go anywhere - am still at my mums - go back and see husband when he is not at work - but just want to be at work and normal again! suppose we all want that!

Lauz really pleased for you - you have done very well and success stories are what we need to keep us motivated. Once I get on the correct meds - and I do need them - will try and go back to work - they did say pick and choose your hours - do what you want to do - open door! and my boss did phone me the other night saying we want you back. So that was nice. See what happens.

Nicola hope you are feeling a bit better this am.

Laura x
