  1. For the past few days, I've been having anxiety again. Don't like that.
  2. Hi Trace!! Hope you're doing well. I"m doing a bit better, next week I see my doc i think she needs to up my cymbalta and xanax.

  3. I hope you had a fantastic day :)

  4. Good morning everyone! I hope everyone feels at least 50% better than yesterday! I started walking with my daughter, and that's helping ALOT. I feel good, haven't been able to sleep well, but I feel good. Thank God!
  5. Yesterday was an awesome day!! Wanna know why? Cause i wasn't home!! hahaha. And I didn't take the cymbalta, so today I didn't wake up anxious. But i know I have to today. I wish I felt calm everyday like i did yesterday without pills. Wierd,huh?
  6. Nothing has changed yet! Still feeling the same, but something I did notice was a tightening of my jaw. I'm still having early morning anxiety. :verysad3:
  7. First of all, I pray everyday that everyone here and out in the world feels better, this is no easy task which we're all going thru. But today I ask that someone here takes the time to send a little prayer my way for a situation that I'm going thru and I need closure with. It's been hanging over my head for a few months and it's what's pretty much drove me to my depression and anxiety. I will be so grateful if you do, because i know for a fact, that God, no matter the name or form, DOES listen to prayers, specially when it's a multitude of people praying at the same time for the same cause. Thanking you in advance and wishing everyone a very healthy and happy day!
  8. Waking up anxious really sucks. How much longer is this gonna take?

  9. Oh man 6 weeks?! Wow, :whatsthat: So you feel better now?
  10. I just started taking meds for depression and anxiety and yes, I've noticed a bit of paranoia also. If the dogs next door start barking, it sets it off, Sometimes I think I hear noises and such.I never thought in a million years that my health would reach this point.
  11. You have the same symptoms I had the very first day I took Cymbalta, and it didn't stop that day, it continued. Took away my apetite, still haven't gotten it back completely. I've been on it for exactly a week. Still waiting for some of the side effects to go away and to start feeling better. About you feeling cold, same thing happened to me, it like i had chills and there have been a few days that I've had leg and toe cramping, which that never happens. Hope you feel better soon!!
  12. If it's been 3 weeks already, have you gone to see your doctor? Apparently they give meds to help the side effects of the AD meds. I'm taking Cymbalta and it has kicked my butt, she gave me Xanax for the anxiety, but it's such a low dosage, i barely feel anything. My psychiatrist (MD) is out of town this week, but my psychologist suggested I track my symptoms so that when the MD returns, I can give her a clear pic of what's happening with me. The MD DID prescibe Xanax, but I try to take it only when absolutely needed since it is sedative and zombies me out even more! Plus, those benzos really mess with your chemistry. They block absorption of some nutrients, etc., and I have lost WAYYYYY too much weight already due to depression, so I'm not thrilled about depriving my body of nutrition. I just don't know how much longer I should give this stuff before deciding it's not working for me. On the other hand, I'm only on 10 mg, and most people say 20 mg is where you really start to feel the benefits, so maybe it's time to move up. I wish my MD wasn't away! I feel you 100%, It's only been one week for me and I feel like pulling my hairs out!! What mg is your Xanax, mine is .25 and it's like NOTHING! I'm on the lowest dosage of Cymbalta also. But like you I want to feel better already. PS YOU ARE NOT A BAD FATHER NOR HUSBAND, you're just not "ready" yet!

  14. Rough morning AS USUAL since i started this med, but I'm noticing that the only way I'll feel "relaxed"' is if I leave the house. Sometimes I feel like i"m running away, but staying at home, just makes my thinking become too compulsive. Anyone else feel that way?
  15. Today I got out of the house Took my kids to Edison & Ford museum Had lunch outside Picked up my younger son and we all went to a shopping mall Cooked dinner MEDITATED!!! Cried my heart out-to ME, it was good, I released alot of stress built in.:Coopwink: Today was a good day.
