Does anyone else feel uncomfortable being at home by themselves? I’ve been on citalopram for about 8 weeks now for depression and anxiety, and whilst my depression is better, the anxiety is taking longer to subside. I just find it hard to ‘switch off’ and relax when I’m at home and there’s no one there. If I’m home alone I end up trying to find things to keep me busy and my phone is never far from my reach. I don’t even like staying up past 9pm on my own, I end up taking myself off to bed. I’m fine if there’s others with me, but I feel like I’m always trying to ‘step out of my head’ when there’s no one else there and the ‘what if’s’ and scary thoughts keep trying to creep in. I understand that all of my feelings are heightened and more sensitive due to the anxiety, but it’s hard not being able to feel and be at peace in my own home. Does anyone have any tips that they use to help?
