    I know it's really hard, but since I upped my dose I've had a few blips where my anxiety has gone back up and I've felt totally crap again.

    I found that going back to doing all the things that I did in the early days of my dose increase to help manage my anxiety helped. It did feel like I was starting from scratch again. But once I got my head round the fact that I could do something to help myself it got easier.

    So don't give up, what techniques have you used previously that helped? 54321, guided meditation and yoga have really helped me. The most important thing I found was to keep doing what I normally do, some nights I would only get 5/6 hours sleep but I still got ready and went to work and survived. Even though I felt like shit if a friend wanted to meet for coffee I would go.

    The worst thing I did was sit and be anxious about being anxious. Overthink how I was feeling and search for ways to make myself better.

    There's no quick fix and there are times when things are tough but they should become less frequent and less awful.

    I've also had some CBT sessions, am having counselling and currently doing a Mindful Self Compassion workbook. I'm not out of the woods yet and I know I've got to continue doing what I'm doing but life is a hell of a lot better than 5 months ago.

    Don't lose hope.

    Today Iíve felt so good. Yesterday it felt like I had electrical shocks in my brain. Hoping and praying that this is the Seroxat kicking in

    Six and a half week now, and the last week has been much better. Today I feel frustrated and depressed again, I just had a fight with my teenage daughter. Now Iím worried that paxil wonít work after all
