    I swear to god I been the same way scared to take my med my first time taking Zoloft yesterday I'm pretty sensitive to prescription meds so this mightn't not be your case but I been nauseous since yesterday and this morning I can feel it trying to go away. I'm told it's a side effect but I can't do this no more I been having bad anxiety a good while now and decided I need to do something about this. Good to know I'm not the only one feeling like this I'm so tired of going through crying spells and feeling weird.

      It is part of the anxiety rules and disorder not to want to use medicines. To many what if..involved. Some have too to function. If you are functioning then you do need to finds what skills and tools work for you. Try yoga. Its free, can do it at home or in a group and should help a little. A lot of stuff is out there to try in your own it is just time consuming and requires consistency. By now you know so much if what it can do so that part is good.
