I have noticed that come the afternoons I start getting real panicked especially if I know my husband has to go to work that evening. I don't like feeling like this.

    That's how I used to be.  Hated being on my own and felt scared when I was.  I used get anxious when Monday came round and I had to go back to work, though enjoyed it when I was there, then got anxious when Friday came round as had to face the weekend!!  I used to panic about going on holiday and panic when I came back.  Couldn't win 🙄

    As as these meds start working for you, you'll begin to feel calmer, happier and will find being on your own not full of anxiety anymore.

    These meds take an awful long time to work for most, so count progress in months not weeks.  As each month passes you'll begin to notice little changes.  It took me about 3-4 months.  Some people recovery quicker.  It's not all bad during that time either as it gets better.  Remember, you can't hurry a good thing 😊❤️

    Just keep going, through all the strange experiences, and you'll find recovery will begin to happen for you too.  There may be setbacks along the way where you'll feel like you're going backwards, but they're normal.  

    Youll get there.

      I feel that way to at times. I have high points and low points. Its like it comes in spurts. I'm sure that's what the medicine is supposed to do but I wish it didnt I want to feel good all the time and not feel so low some times. Its aggravating.

      That's how I am I worry about my worry. It seems kind of funny but its really not. I hate it. I want my normal back. I know it takes time and I just have to learn patients. Which for me is very hard.

      Ur preaching to the converted here! Waiting for these to kick in is torture! I keep thinking i'll never feel better which is crazy as ive only felt this way for a few months which means ive had yrs of feeling like me but this anxiety bout has really knocked my confidence! Which i know is all part of anxiety have u ever read the citralopram survial guide? Worth a read!
