Does this ever end???

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm on meds and actually thinking about going up. I just want to know when the constant angst is going to go away, when the lump in my throat will disappear, when will the digestive issues stop... oh and when will I stop thinking I'm dying of the Big C. Will the weight loss stop? Will my appetite return?

I just want my life back and just really need someone to tell me this will get better. This isn't my first bout with anxiety and depression but this seems to be the worst bout. I'm really getting frustrated with all of this.

Please help...

    Anxiety isnt best dealt with by meds, and certainly not meds alone. Ask for therapy instead of or alongside. Meds are only meant to offer a short term assistantance, they aren't a cure

    I'm just over 6 weeks in on medication and 3 months with anxiety and I like you am scared to death of the big c or anything life threatening, but still it's hard. The medicine helps a lot even though I have a set back here and there but I started gaining weight back after about week 3 of meds and the stomach is still here every once in a while it just takes time, right now I have a small headache and a tingle almost like my head took a chill and it has been here for like 3 days not super bad just annoying and it raises questions whether or not I have a brain issue going on which is prolly the anxiety creeping in I'm sure but I feel like if that passes I'll be back to normal the rest of the way so I guess what I'm saying is once you get meds the 4 to 6 weeks is a pretty accurate description of feeling some postive effects and side effects going away
