Have been waking up really anxious still until early afternoon,feel that underneath Im getting better its just really hard to start evry day so negatively.Am making a massive effort to keep up with the house work etc but its not easy.I think if I could get on top of the anxiety Id be nearly there.I have put on loads of weight so most of my clothes are too tight which is really getting me down too,Olanzapine causes weight gain too so Ive got no chance have I?

Hope to get back to work in the middle of August,I hope its not going to be too soon.

    Hi Jo I understand about the crippling anxiety. I have suffered with this too. It's difficult to do anything and concentration is zero. I know when I'm feeling like this I just feel fired up and nowhere to go. You are making an extreme effort to keep up with the house but please find some 'me' time too. As I dont see you everyday I dont know if you are ready to go back to work or not. Your doctors do however. Trust their decisions if there is an opportunity to go back one or two days a week at first then do. Best wishes Jo.

    Talk about feeling anxious. Worry just about everything at the moment, but at least I am a bit happier, though getting sick fed up with my tummy complaints.

    Jo, I totally understand where you are coming from, crippling is a very good word to describe it. Sometimes it just hits you ( :lol: like something else I could mention) but I really hope you will manage to get better soon.

    I am more upbeat as going away, and I cant wait. But my OCD behaviour takes over , at these times. Everything has to neat , and prestine for my return. Also keep hiding things, just in case, Then make sure things are switched off over and over. I thought thisnoramla behaviour, but my own father watched me do this and ( :lol: had his own wee anxiety attack about my behaviour). anyway, hope you all let the sun shine thro and try some relaxing ?????

    Just got back from a few days in Wales and not feeling good. I also find the mornings are the worst with my anxiety, Buspirone not doing a thing am now taking diazapine as well, just to get through the day. I look forward to nightime because I know when I take the mirtazapine I will sleep, and thats the only time I get some relief from this horrible thing that seems to of robbed me of my life. Cannot speak to the psych, hes away on a course, so going back to see gp on monday to see if its safe for me to stay on mirtazapine, as i took it upon myself to go back on them, and its took a week for someone to get back to me from the hospital just to tell me to go see your own gp.

    Is anyone feeling any better,

    Danielle.

    Hi Jo, I am going to phone to see if I can see the psych again, my next appointment will not be for another 7 weeks, its to long for me to wait, I need my meds reviewd.

    Have you stopped the venlafaxine? what meds are you on now, its so dibilitating this anxiety just trying to function daily is an ordeal.

    How often do you see your psych.

    Take Care

    I see my psych every 2-4 weeks but I think its only so often because she cant get my anxiety under control so that makes 2 of us!

    I take olanzapine and venlafaxine still with the depakote,have actually stopped mirtazapine now but still need my on line support!

    I feel Ok now but tommorow morning wil be the same as all the others and that is suicide inducing

    Take care,hope you get some peace soon
