Hi I have been unwell for over 2 years, with symptoms that could well be ME and my GP told me in December that she thought it could be.
Although I have been quite unwell for over 2 years with 24/7 flu like symptoms plus other symptoms, things have got massively worse since I had Campylobacter in November. It is true to say that as the 2 years have passed I have become more and more anxious and stressed. I am now extremely anxious and stressed and do not know whether the deteriation in my condition is due to the anxiety or in fact visa versa - the extreme anxiety is due to the deteriation.
I hate the thought of anti -depressants and have always found anxiety meds, sleeping pills etc knock me out completely. Although I have recently started taking St Johns Wort with no adverse effects.
What are peoples thoughts on these meds. I am finding it hard to think possitive thoughts as my condition is always on my mind as the symptoms are severe and 24/7 at the moment, I wondered if it was worth taking anti-depressants to help.
