    NO I SLEEP RIGHT THROUGH UNTIL ABOUT 10 AM I DONT HAVE DEPRESSION AS SUCH, ONLY WHEN THE ANXIETY STOPS ME FROM DOING SOMETHING I WANT TOO, LIKE I AM DESPERATELY NEED TO GO TO THE HAIRDRESSERS, BUT THE THOUGHT OF SITTING IN THERE AND NOT BEEN ABLE TO RUN WHEN I WANT TO SCARES THE HELL OUT OF ME. EATING OUT IS ANOTHER SCARY PLACE THAT I DONT DO.

    tHANKS FOR YOUR REPLY

    WISHING YOU WELL

    miNE APPARANTLY HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED TO ME AS A CHILD. BUT I HAD A REALLY BAD PANIC ATTACK AT A PLACE I USED TO WORK, AND I CAN STILL REMEMBER IT TO THIS DAY, AND THATS WHERE I THINK MINE STARTED.

    DID THEY TELL YOU WHY THEY HAD ADDED THE MIRT ?? MY PSYCH DIDNT JUST TAKE THIS AS WELL AND YOU WILL FEEL A LOT CALMER!!

    I CANNOT WORK BECAUSE OF IT, SO I HAVE TO ADMIRE YOU WORKING, SOMETIMES I WISH I HAD A LITTLE JOB WITH NO PRESSURE JUST TO GET ME OUT OF THE HOUSE.

    TAKE CARE

    KYM.

    Hey Hows it going, I tried cbt and it did nothing, I have been on seroxat in the past 40mg and it gave me my life back, I came off it very slowly with no problems. I know its had bad press in the past, but it took me 12 mnths trying to convince my gp that it had worked and all that he was prescribing was,t and believe me I have tried them all even venlofaxine, prozac was the worst citalopram felt like i had drunk a bottle of vodka 2 hours after taking it.

    So off I went to the mental health hospital to see a psych, he gave me seroxat, its actually paroxetine, and my usual pharmacy said they couldnt give me seroxat because it was to expensive, so I tried Boots and they are more than happy to order it in for me,\"GENERICS\"hey and they say theres no difference, but for some reason it didnt work as well as last time so they added mirt. Sorry to ramble I went 10 mnths with no medication and BAM my brother in law died of cancer that was 2 years ago. it took 3 overdoses it was really a cry for help as i didnt want to die but i didnt want to live like i was, seroxat decided it wasnt working and i got refered to a really great psyc who added mirt first 15mg then after 6 weeks all the anxiety came back i phoned my cpn and she said its just your body telling you that 15mg is not enough and she upped the dose to 30mg i am 5 days in and feel all calm again as the psych said this is what mirt will do.

    Hope this helps BY the way i noticed you live in norwich I have relations who live in NORTH WALSHAM, LOVELY PLACE.

    Anyway ive rambled on enough now take care

    Speak again soon

    Kym

    p.s WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK ,IS THERE A LOT OF PRESSURE ON YOU??????
