I am a 31 year old mother of 3, ages 11, 8, & 2. Around 2 months ago my anxiety skyrocketed out of control. I have lost 20 pounds and have become so depressed from it. I have been on celexa 40mg for 3 years and my doc recently added buspar and ativan. The tension in my neck is unreal as I usually always find a disease that correlates with even tho I'm pretty sure it's anxiety. I have been to 3 different ERs in the past 2 months for numerous problems. (Heart attack, blood clot, stomach pain that I was convinced was pancreatitis or cancer). It is extremely embarassing but it is a real thing to me. My family doesn't understand and neither does my husband. He tries but I can tell my constant worrying and needing reassurance is getting to him. I have started seeing a psychologist but I'm not sure she is helping so much. I'm thinking of switching to a psychiatrist so that they can control my anxiety and my meds. I have been diagnosed with GAD, panic disorder, ocd, and depression. Any help or ideas anyone has to help me through this rough patch would be greatly appreciated.
