"This too shall pass"

Posted , 5 users are following.

First off I can not thank you all enough for everything everyone who has responded to me or reached out to me for everthing you have done for me. I wish I could thank each one of you in person. 

Please go look back at my old post. You will see what rough shape I was in. I had gone cold turkey off my meds and honestly thought it was the end of my life. 8 weeks back on and I am almost to 100%. Though I don't know if I will ever get there it has been a huge improvement. Though I know meds are not for everyone I would say please give them a chance. I went through hell for about 7 weeks before seeing any improvement. Though you don't think it will ever pass it will. The title of my posting is my saying I always say when I am having anxiety. I even got it tattooed in Hebrew on my collar bone and rub it when I feel anxiety. Maybe my OCD😃. My anxiety was 24/7 non stop so I know what most of you are going through. 

Though i I don't check the website now 24/7 I hope I can help anyone the same as you all have helped me. Please please please please PM me with any questions or about anything even if you want to chat. 

I wish everyone a blessed holidays.

    I'm 20 years old and going through 24/7 anxiety for the first time in my life. I can't even go shopping without having a cloud of unease hovering over me. I get chest pains everyday that of course scare the crap out of me and I just don't know how to live life to the fullest anymore. It sucks because I'm in college right now but luckily on my winter break. I don't know what I'm going to do when I have to go back...

      Yes....I had situational anxiety and was put on a ssri. I gave it 8 weeks and they sent my anxiety through the roof. Now having to sort out the mess they made. 

      I have used them successfully in the past but do feel that they where not the answer this time. If I'd if been given something like a sedative or beta blocker to get me through the weeks until the crisis had past,I think I'd of been ok.

      20 weeks on...12 on a different antidepressant and I'm feeling a bit of hope xx

      Walter - Though they can make things worse at first in the long run they have shown to improve the lifes of many. Me being one of those. I wouldnt say doctors presribe these to get rid of patients.
