Am posting as I am still crippled with consuming anxiety since coming off lithium and reboxetine and back onto venlafaxine.Every single task seems too enormous to accomplish,I just want to sleep I am so afraid I cant say.I am unable to function anymore,I fret over evry decision,even getting up takes hours of panic before I can do it and then all I want to do is lie down with my eyes shut to block it all out.Im not getting better its worse,Im told to be patient but its so hard,I want out

    Hi Jo, I know the feeling. I used to chant this to myself, and still do

    \"Every little helps\", but even that gets bloddy depressing as you start to ask yourself, why am I chanting this??????

    Mirtazipine seems to be good for me so far, maybe you should go back and see your doctor, Its better than being a bear with a sore head and like a cow with only one stomach...you need something to make your day less painful. Tell him /her whats happening to you. Pleases!!! For me!!!!

    Hi Jo,

    So sorry you are still not feeling any better, I think one of the most frustrating things about this illness, is the fact that with all the meds, its all about the length of time thease things take to have any effect. I know theres no quick fix, but its the last thing an anxuios mind wants to hear, plus the side effects from some of them.

    Have you no family, a sister or close friend that could pop around to see you,and maybe help you out with household chores each day, I always feel a bit better when Ive been out, if only for a walk as it takes my mind of things, still feel the same when I get home though.

    Thinking of you, and wishing you a well

    Danielle.

    \"Where is my mind?\" I was swimming the CarribeAN, ENEMIES BEHINDING behind a box, except a little fish and hes trying to talk to me,where is my mind?\"

    Way out in the water see it swimmining, where is my mind? Way out in the water, see it swimminig.

    dear Jo I think Danielle is right that you need to go out each day even if it is just up the road to buy a paper. I would ask your doctor to review your meds although I guess the venlafaxine hasn't had time to work yet. Anxiety is a terrible thing I thought I had to see it out. Not so. Maybe if your anxiety levels were less you would feel like doing more. Big hugs as I dont feel that brilliant myself at the moment. You have come so far I'm sure things will improve. Pooh.

    I feel a bit gutted. i dramk due to anxiety, which in turn enhances/enhanced my anxiety. But even as a child I was very anxious, I used to pure jump out my skin when a loud lorry /van ran passed. I was never able to walk past a digger without crying. Now, I am afraid I am being misunderstood. i dont know, I am anxious and always have been,,,, I am used to that though, but I am not used to my depressive episodes. Off late this year. I swing form being a trembling wreck, to ft, a happy person, to trembling and to states which Id rather not go outside. i think life time affairs have caught up with me, ive forgotten \"the good life\" yet know it exiists. then think, blody hell, maybe I am living it and cant recognise it. I just do not know.
