Hi All

not been on for a week.... my gosh what an awful week you have all had!

What with Rubbish doctors ,bad inlaws, falling out with partners,may be loosing jobs, not looking forward to easter,false sence of security, new experiences, I do not know wher to start.

I too have not had a too good week... feel awful for admitting this as I am usually a very strong person. I have had allot of awful thoughts I reread the side effects and it is all there, not sure to stay with this medication!!! Allot of sufferers say stuff like this gets better. But I am thinking I did not have these thoughts before. So would I be better to go back to doctors and say although i have an \"inner calm\" is that wotrh the way I feel now? or find another drug Not sure what to do ?

Appreciate you all have your Easter Weekend to face or enjoy but would like advice/support before I go back to doctors as it was very hard in the first instance that I even had a problem xxxx

    Hi Andy,

    I'm not sure you can tell what are side effects of tablets and what is part of the illness as they seem the same to me. I think if you have taken them for about 5 to 6 weeks and you are still getting these thoughts or if the thoughts are too much to cope with go back to your Gp and tell him.

    The Gp is there to help you and support you, so let him do that.

    Enjoy your weekend hope the weather improves.

    Hi Andrea

    Hope you are feeling better today? :lol:

    I'm having a bad day and then on top everything else the in-laws arrived and all the crockery was packed in boxes by the front door ready to be picked up. The kids were brilliant they stayed with me all the time and so did hubby. I even managed to say no to some small pierex bowls. :roll:

    My fears/phobias are returning 2 nights this week I have woken panicking and today I just had to return to bed as things just got on top of me. I think I have been completely off cit for about 5/6weeks I wish I had written it down. Still no sign of the CBT assessment :? :?

    I've still got 2 weeks before i see my consultant and tell her i want to see a speicialist because i'm not happy with the way my treatment is going. I just wish my GP had done it like i asked him to. Now i'm getting worked up about that too.

    Hope you had a good Easter Break.

    Take care

    Hi Lizzy

    Oh dear your in laws keep appearing at the most awful times for you, never mind at least tour hubby and children were supportive.

    It is not good when you start to feel un well again, when you have been feeling a bit better. When you are getting yourself a bit worked up about various things two weeks seems like a life time to wait to see your consultant.

    Is there any way you can bring your appointment forward or chase your CBT assesment to see what is happening?

    Hang on in there and look after yourself

    Andrea xx
