Crying is getting silly too it's like my whole head shudders .. I have been on citalapram for about 3 weeks now and feels like it's not working .... I'm really worried about going to my councling as I have to get myself there and I don't feel comfortable driving and there is no 1 that can take me as everyone is working ....posting on something like this is pretty new to me but you all seem to give great advice .. I have no motivation and am so scared all the time !!!

    You're not alone I'm 23 & I feel the same way. Just today I felt my heart race so much I thought I might be having a heart attack. I hope we can all find our cure soon.

      Bless u its so hard I haven't really had that much heart racing that I've noticed unless I'm having a panic attack it's just like a numb aching all over my body all the time I feel sick can't eat sleep and people keep trying to get me out but I just can't do it I feel I have no fight !!! I'm diabetic too so the not eating is not doing me good ...

    Hi I've been on Citalopram, it didn't make me feel like that. Maybe get a bus to see your GP & have a chat about changing drugs. Compete pain in the neck I know, having been there & going through it still. I started Mirtazipine last night but chopped the pills in half out of fear from being too drowsy. I have to drive my kids to school tomorrow on hardly any sleep....You will get better, keep telling yourself that. I use youtube as a valuable resource, lots of life coaches on there with great advise.

      Ah thanks. i hope you feel better too & you will eventually.

      Yes it's a minefield isnt it, so disheartening just thinking about trying all the different ones. I've been on 5 anti depressants over the years. Had beta blockers too for when I was learning to drive. They do take the edge off.

    Hi, Citalopram takes a few weeks to start working give it time. In the mean time try to relax, i know you like to write things down and write poetry which helps others. So do something for yourself, reading, going for a walk or listening to music etc.

    You sound so so anxious. Please try relax. Anxiety does come in waves and I am sure yours will pass soon....your not alone so try remember that. Try some simple breathing exercises to calm you through out the day.....All the best

      It mite sound blunt, but I do this often. Try think to yourself if all I have to worry about is going back to work then I have cracked it. Try remind yourself there is a lot of people in the world worse off than me...I have had health anxiety for 7 years and know it's awful, but I can still do the majority of things and live life to the fullest unlike some people.... Stay positive and u will get through..
