    Hi

    Deep breaths! Take your medication. Diazepam is amazing and within 30 mins you'll feel much calmer. If it's got to such a bad stage you need to be taking the advice from your doc about taking the meds.

    Have you been referred for counselling etc

    Try things that help you relax. Even if it's standing in a hot shower and the water helps relax your shoulders for a few moments

    Hi chloendaisy,

    Just want to say you are not alone on here we have all been there and some still there.have you thought of ringing Samaratains to talk to they will just listen to you,I know how you feel about meds. But perhaps it might help just take the first dose as prescribed one day at a time,I know that's not easy I have just had to result to meds, and have stuck out so long but I think as soon as we swallow one every ache or pain it's the meds and it probably is not.the mind is a most powerful thing.Is there not anybody else that can get your child to school.

    Just do a little thing and then rest,put the telly on or radio or have you a garden you can ho into with your little one anything to try and distract you from your thoughts if only for a little while.

    Just keep coming on here always somebody that will answer you.

    Take Care

    Why don't you try and call the Samaritans and talk it through? Even if it's just to talk about what you're going through so you know you're not on your own x

    Could you take the tablets for the sake of your daughter because they will make you feel better and then that's better for her?

    Hi,

    I'm so distressed to hear how you are feeling. As I've been afflicted with this for years and I truly sympathise.

    For what it's worth; TAKE YOUR TABLETS. You clearly need them to help cope. Suffering needlessly won't help with the situation with your daughter. The sooner you get this Demon under control the better for you both.

    These episodes are a nightmare especially dealing with them on your own. BUT they DO PASS. Take the meds and hang on in there girl.

    I don't do this very often, but, I'm sending you some love!

    Be strong, be you'

    Hi,

    Shall we try and get this into perspective,can the tablet make you feel any worse than you are that's what I said last night with my first one,you say you need help but at the end of the day the GP can only give you tablets or some counselling,if you went into hospital you would have to take them (well of course upto you) but they would discharge you if not.I am sorry if this sounds harsh but that is what I have told myself.or if things are that bad and sound like they are as your GP got a crises team to come out to you. think of your little one you don't want to loose her.

    Sorry for being blunt

    Love and lots of it

    Joan xxxx

    Hello there.

    I really feel for you. My thoughts are coming your way. You are definitely not alone.

    I totally understand your fear of meds. If you don't want to take the ssri you could just take the diazepam. 2mg is a very low dose. 2mg of diazepam didn't touch it for me. Neither did 4mg. But when I was given lorazepam it was amazing!

    Take care and hang in there.

    First take a deep breathe and take your medicine. You were prescribed these meds for a reason. Your anxiety is effecting your child by not sending her off to school. That is not good especially if child protection services get involved by not sending her to school. You must tend to your medical health and not halt it all of sudden. That makes it worse. Drs. try to help, but if you don't follow thier orders it is useless. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and dont take 10 steps backward. Do it for your child.

    hi chloen, please take the diazepam. i know how you feel about meds. i was the same and i will tell you why i was so scared to take them. because i thought that they would make me even more helpless and i wouldnt be able to function.i thought i'd loose control, but they have the opposite effect. they give you control. thats what they are for to control your symptoms. and also if i was you i would phone the school. there will be a nurse there for the children that you could talk to. no one is going to take your child away. you sound like a good mother who loves their child. we are all in the same boat here. and have had to take meds to help us so we know what we are talking about. i was on 40mg of prozac and they stopped me crying. i started on 20mg so they cant be that bad if i took another 20mg. the diazepam are to relax you and when you take it you will wonder what all the fuss is about. you must break this mental block and take the tablets. dont let a mental block rule your life. as thats all it is. face the fear and have courage and believe us. look how many of us have posted to you. because we all know what its like. you are in my prayers. love xxx
