Anxiety ridden for 4 and a half months need help

Posted , 3 users are following.

Not everyday is the same, good and bad but recently the attacks seem to be elevating to the point were they are a struggle to cope with. Struggling with the physical symptons more than anything. The sore legs, arms, head and especially the back spasms.Im on quetiapine 25mg twice a day though i dont like taking medication i will say that they habe at least kept my mind from wondering.

Trying to find the motivation to keep plugging away at this is a test of durability. 4 years ago the same thing happened and i hit the drink and drugs which at the time i believe now masked all my current problems. Though this time round i ended in hospital with suspected alcohol withdrawl symptons. So ive been alcohol and drug free now since this recent setback. Trying to get people to understand how i feel at times is really hard to do as they are old school responses just snap out of it style. I know that given time and alot of dedication to the meds and cbt therapy there will be a silver lining. Though it would be nice to actually talk to people that know exactly how im feeling for a change. Reading most discussions and i really do now understand that i am not alone out here. So if i can help anyone in anyway shape or form i will.

      Hi William. ....

      I agree with steph in seeking medical attention.

      It's great to see you're going for CBT, I myself done CBT for 6 months and found it to be really helpful with not only my anxiety but also panic.

      I like yourself and many others have good and bad days and it is a struggle.

      But that's what I love about these pages, we can all struggle together.

      Best of luck William, keep us posted.

      John
