  1. Oh I can relate, I worry about everything. I think it's my way of trying to prepare myself, if something bad happens. By worrying so much, mentally I'm actually going through a horrible event that my never happen. The mind and body can't stay in this state 24/7, without having a negative effect. This is the main reason I suffer from severe panic/anxiety attacks. I find it very difficult to clear my mind and not worry.
  2. Yes, he can be telling you the truth. Why are you agonizing over his past relationship? Has he done anything to make you feel so insecure? IMO if you keep interrogating him, you will eventually lose him. Believe what he's telling you, unless he gives you a reason not to.
  3. I was recently told by a professional..... Depression is causes by a individual's predisosition to it (genetics) and the enviornment they live in. If you take 2 people and put them in the same enviornment, their reaction will be different. The person who is predisposed to depression, will have more difficulties then the person who is not predisposed.
  4. It's the name of a horse I loved to ride as a child.
  5. In order to get better, you have to face your feelings head on, no matter how painful it may be. I'm at the same point in therapy and will cry for hours after. By bringing your feelings to the forefront, you are able face and accept them. This is the road to recovery. recognising what feelings are causing your turmoil and dealing with them. It's a very difficult process and very tough to deal with. For me,I'll do anything to feel better and if I have to feel worse for awhile, then so be it.
  6. Hi Barefoot, I get where you're coming from. I've must of tried about 8-10 medications and hate weening off of one, to start another. But what choice do you really have? I currently added a new med and along with CBT, I'm feeling much better. You can't give up, no matter how fed up you are. There is a treatment plan that will work for you, unfortunately it's trial and error. This disease sucks, but we have to continue to fight, until we feel better.
  7. This was my second session with my new therapist and I have been doing well. I had a good session today and touched on some underlying feelings. After leaving I started having sad thoughts. Not depression sad, just sad. It feels like I'm grieving, but I'm not sure what about. I'm exhausted, very weepy and feel like I lost something close to me. Even as I type this, I can't stop crying. Has anyone gone through this during therapy? I'm very confused about what I'm feeling right now and would like to know if it's a good or bad thing? Thank you.
  8. Are you depressed over the breakup? If soit was you who ended it. Maybe you cared for this woman, more then you thought. Or maybe it's the emptiness you feel of being alone. I would try to figure out, if you miss her, or you miss having someone around. Ending a relationship is difficult, there's a grieving process that you go through due to a loss of a loved one. Search within your heart, make sure you made the right decision. Seems there maybe more to it, then you may think.
  9. I just started with a new therapist and have been feeling good. I have an appt. today and is causing me severe panic, feels like my head is going to explode. This is the first therapist, who "gets me" and I think she can really help me. I'm guessing my panic is from the anticipation of feeling better. It's amazing how I can panic over good things, as well a the bad ones!
  10. Hi Emmi, I also struggle with severe panic attacks and they can make you ill. Your body is under stress from your constant fearful thinking. The first is to find a doctor who can give you something for the anxiety/panic. Second, find a therapist to figure out why you have all this fear. Unfortunately, there's no magic cure for panic attacks. You have to continue to search for the reason, why you're feeling this way.
  11. I've been on Paxil for years and find it works well for my depression. Relief of symptoms, gives me the ability to focus and function on what I'm doing. Although I do experience some emotional "numbness", it's not bad enough to stop it.
  12. Yes, I use to be married to one and they can mess with your head. Luckily, I left seven months into the marriage! I don't take kindly to being manipulated.
  13. There's always hope Amy, you didn't cause what happened to you. You had no one to protect you from the predators in this world. I can see from your writing, you are far from stupid. What country do you love in? Is there anyway to get assistance for mental healthcare?
  14. Hello Steph, I'm in a similar situation, but have been suffering from anxiety for years. I think hormone levels have a big effect on anxiety and depression. Have you tried any of the Benzos? I take Klonopin for my anxiety and it helps a lot, it allows me to calm down and think rationally. It's not a cure, but helps stop my cycle of anxiety to panic. This relief starts a new cycle of calmness and relaxation, which will continue throughout the day.
  15. Sooo........... For the last few days, I've been feeling good! I've had a bit of anxiety, but my new med (Risperdal), is really working for me. I have an appt. with my new therapist tomorrow and I'm actually looking forward to it. This will be my second session and I already see improvement in myself.

  17. Yesterday was also a great day for me. Although, here in NY we had a blizzard, my husband and I spent a nice day together.
