Extremely BAD anxiety & depression :-(

Its hard for me to have Faith & Hope when I keep  getting this bad anxiety and it comes
with crying and shaking & depression - loss of apetite and faintness & horrible scared
feeling (afraid to be left alone, afraid of losing control & hot flashes Shaky, Sweaty &
negative thoughts - and fear - thought I was going crazy -I can't breathe, my heart races -
not able to sleep :-( i feel sick with the horrible feeling - allways anxious!
I'm tired of the pain, and despairing/losing hope -
I start to feel a bit better but within days its HELL again :-(
When will this nightmare be over?? I'm so scared that its not going to end? :-(
begun anti-depressants "Citalopram" 20 mg been on them for 4 weeks now and i dont
know if they are helping?
whats going on with me? how can i stop this?
so say its a hormonal imbalance and Overactive Thyroid? i did have a blood test and it
come back all fine -?
Even when I have a good day its still there at the back of my mind knowing what's to
come. :-(
i went to see a Natural Healthcare  lady - homeopathic & she said i do have a
hormonal imbalance and Overactive Thyroid and she will regulated to the normal speed
and imbalance my hormonal! but she did not say how long it will take?

im going through A hard Time with panic attacks anxiety depression!  :-(
I have been getting anxiety and panic attacks and depression for 10 years now.
It has never gone away, I just try to live with it.
I did try some pills a long time ago but they give me bad side effects so I stopped taking
them
Then was too scared to try any more. I cannot remember the name of them now.
Had some counselling in the past that helped a bit.
I have not much confidence in my self and feel like the odd one out most of the time
I Hate being on my own.
My childhood was not too great. Had a step dad that always put me down and hit me.
He would not let me go to school that much.
I have no education never had a job, Don’t drive, cannot Read and write too well all I do
right I get it spell checked for me.
I have been married for 6 years now but been together for 12 years I have a son, ten
years of age.

and pains me :-( how can i relax?

Hi muchafraid, let me ask you a few questions here...The doctor who is prescribing your Citalopram are they a Psychiatrist or your Primary Care Physician?  If your only seeing your primary doc then please do ask them for a referral to a Psychiatrist as these are really the most qualified doctors to be prescribing antidepressants and antianxiety medications.  Which it does sound as if you could benefit from.  Also, I would stongly recommend that you do get ahold of whom ever it is that does prescribe your antidepressant to let them know how your feeling.  I would say that if you have been on this medication for 4 weeks that you should be feeling some benefits from it by now.  If your not then either it needs to be adjusted or perhaps you may need to try another medication.  There are many other there that are quite effective.
Please I know that many believe in going the natural route and speaking to an herbalist or whatever I am sure you know your options there and I dont dispute those...what I would caution you with is anyone who says that you have imbalances when you know and your doctor has told you that you do not.  This I would worry about greatly and be aware that natural herbs, vitamins and what nots can be just as dangerous and in need of physician supervision as any prescripition medication.
I too have had anxiety/panic and depression for a really long time.  It is so hard to live with and manage I know.  I grew up in an abusive household also and that is the root cause of most of my issues.  It took a while for me to find things that actually help with the anxiety and panic...like exercise, taking walks, I have my iPod loaded down with meditation music which I listen too when I feel overwhelmed or wound up.  Also, yoga or streachs are really good.  I wear a pony tail holder around my wrist so when I do feel an attack coming on and some of these other things dont or wont work then I snap the pony tail holder and sometimes it redirects my brain and train of thought from the attack.  Of course there are times I have to snap it a few more than once like if I go to the mall or whatever but it does help.  Also, I take an antidepressant Effexor Xr which has been very helpful with my depression and I take Xanax as needed for really bad panic...I try not to take the xanax too much cause it makes me very sleepy.
I hope others will post and offer some suggestions to help you get through this rough time.  Let us know how it goes...we are always here :-)

Hi Lisa
Ok..lets try and put a bit of a positive spin on things..
The good part is that you Do have Good days! :-) Because there have been times in my life when I would have given my right arm for a Good day! I am wondering what is happening on a Good day? Are you busy on these days and have left all those 'ick' feelings on the side burner?If this is the case then it would seem that distraction could well be the key for you to feel better.
Number two 'positive thing' is that you have sought help through meds,counselling and you have reached out to the HW family..well done it takes courage and patience to do this! As Els suggests going back to your med prof for meds adjustment would be a great idea..and maybe organising a top up of counselling too.
Have you ever thought about seeking adult education? It's never too late to learn stuff..and hey it would take your mind off feeling 'ick'...imagine the good feeling of acheivement..you have managed to put your story across rather well here at HW - spellcheck or not...
Look forward to hearing more from you Lisa.

Hi...I have a myspace....it's Punkcarebear.  I'll send you a friend request.  I too, have been suffering from depression for 8 years (that I know of...).  I have tried multiple medications with multiple effects.  Now I am on Cymbalta and Depakote.  I'm new at this chat room thing...I hope I don't say the wrong thing...
 
The Cymbalta is for the "pain of depression".  I have chronic pain in my leg.  The Cymbalta did help take away some of the pain I was in, but the leg resists....
 
I have also always been the odd one out.  Most of the time I embrace being the weird one... devil   haha...but I also know how alone you can feel. The last couple of months have been very hard for me....sometimes just waking up is the worst part of the day.
 
Mostly, I just want you to know that you are not alone....if you want to talk, just myspace me....

Hi punkcarebear, welcome to healing well forum we are most happy to have you join us here.  Please dont worry about saying the wrong thing here as long as you have read the forum rules before hand I am sure you will be fine.  This isnt really a chat room but a on-line forum where you post to others posts or threads as we call them and sometimes it takes a while to get a response.  However HW does have chat rooms that most usually have members in them if your interested in checking those out...you can get to those by either going to the right side of the post here under Forum Links it is the fourth one down or on the Blue bar at the top of your screen next to calendar it says Chat and you can enter the chat rooms from there.
 
It was very nice of you to reply to muchafraid and let her know that she wasnt alone...it is so important for all of us to know that we are not alone in this.  Depression, anxiety and panic disorders are so rough to have and when you start to feel isolated with them it can be even worse I know.  I hope you continue to post here and lend your support this is a great place to give and get that.  See ya around... :-)
