Hi anyone

    Hi Joyce

    Try your hardest this weekend to stay as busy as you can. Go to the mall, the movies, treat yourself to dinner. Think of it as a well deserved treat!

    I don't particularly have a lot of family and my friends are mostly work friends so I don't spend much free time with them. It helps my anxiety quite a bit to stay busy as possible. Try not to let anxiety live constantly rent free in your mind. I understand how difficult it can be to make yourself do things but I know you can do it!

    Best of luck to you

    hi, Joyce, I agree with Teresa. Keep yourself occupied, if, the meds are not helping then got back to your gp. Good luck

    Hi Joyce

    these are the side effects of the drugs.  I too had nights like that and with anxiety.  They do abate.  I promise.  Just awful having to go through them.

    Also you are not going mad.  Remember these are side effects.
