I have struggled with Anxiety for as long as I can remember. It has never been this bad before, I'm so concerned something is wrong with me. It wasn't until a few months ago I started noticing a change in the way I felt. I got out of a very bad abusive relationship & started self medicating (smoking cannabis) on a daily basis, mainly to numb my mind from the stuff that happened to me.
Here I am today and I honestly feel like I'm falling apart/going crazy. I had my first actual panic attack which left me hospitalized about a week ago. It was the scariest five minutes of my life, and the effects of it lasted a while after that. The doctor at the ER prescribed me 15 .05 mg Ativan... it did help a lot with my anxiety, but once I used it all the anxiety came back FULL force. I feel off, and I feel even more depressed and anxious then I did before. My psychiatrist prescribed me 10mg prozac but that's not helping at the moment, as it takes about a month to actually kick in. I'm exhuasted mentally... I just want to live a normal life again. I'm always scared something is wrong with my health or that I'm dying.
