Nanners, you are in my prayers and I know that overwhelming feeling that anxiety brings. Be strong my friend and you will make it through. You have a whole forum here to support you as you support so many.
Went to the Dr. yesterday and she put me on Zoloft 25 mg for one week and after that I will move to 50mg a day. Sure hope this helps get things under control. I don't like it one bit.
On good news side, my boss was totally understanding and gave me the rest of the week off to try to rest and getting back into a better place. Actually said to take as much time as I needed.
Hey Nanners,I am so sorry........talk with your Physician about one of the new meds, Lexapro or Cymbalta. They may be a better choice. It is tough with your Crohns. Keep posting my friend and please know I am praying for you.
Not sure if it's anxiety for me or just worrying. I guess they're one in the same. I constantly worry about my CD: for my health, job issues, whether my kids will get it, ad infinitum.
I think I'm going to go see a head shrinker in another couple of weeks to try and get my arms around it. It's definitely not healthy for me and probably contributes to my CD issues.
I am so glad you got different meds. I know this is a little late, but I take welburtin and lexapro. So far it is helping tremendously. I worried about everything from A to Z and I am already feeling better. I hope this works. I struggle with a chronic illness, depression and anxiety, and migraines. It is tricky, but you are all so supportive. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
