Need some positive support

Posted , 7 users are following.

I've been posting frequently to get positive support, thank you to those of you who are so positive about CIT.

CAN you please tell me know how long until you recovered? was it days, weeks, months, that anxious feelings diminished?

I'm on my 15th week and still have anxious feelings in the morning, and sometimes it sneaks up on me just when I FEEL I'm getting a break from the anxiety.

I'm on 25 mg, I'm sleeping better, eating better, and the side effects are gone, it's just the lingering anxiety that's still hanging on! WILL these anxious feelings ever go away?

thank you

    About 14 weeks in now. The anxiety can still come but soon goes as I no longer fight it & I generally notice triggers now. Lack of sleep, what I've eaten over a couple days, period, these all set it off for me....I just allow it to run its course. I reckon a lot at this point is mind over matter. It's so hard but it will get easier. Have you tried mindfulness?! I feel it helps though its not for everyone.

    sounds really silly but the anxiety in the morning is what still holds me back but the last couple of mornings i have decided , to be stronger than the anxiety . i have been waking up anxious and tellong myself "get up get ready and start your day " ive been busying my mind and it does soon wear off!!! everyone is different but my positive mental attitude has made a heck of a difference . and we r the winners not this horrible disease!!!!! set backs will always happen but if u know how to deal with it u can take back control

    Couldn't agree more with this.

    Have had a week off this week and been ill, thus not getting up and getting moving and boy, anxiety has bitten me on the bum.

    It really is a lot to do with just deciding to get up and continue anyway. Once you can do that, even when you're panicking, you have mastered the anxiety.

    This is not to say its easy, but it does really help.
