A huge warm welcome to you hopelessly..I'm so glad you decided to join us here at HW. We have great fun and support each other in all our crazy moods!
It's sounds like you are going through a nasty time at the moment..but please don't feel guilty or scared for going back on the lexapro..if you need it..you need it! Try not to focus too much on what might happen, if you get some side effects just try and ride through them. I find keeping a diary helps. If it does get too much or you feel scared please let your doctor know. And please vent to us!!
Once again, welcome, I really look forward to your posts xx
Hi hopelessly...I think you have done the right thing going back on your meds..well done you Just remember you have been down this road before...you can't go back to square one coz you have already been there done that..you have coping skills..you just gotta dust the cobwebs off them..and you will be fine in no time. I am sure you love it here at HW..and thru your own life experiences you will be able to help others as well as yourself.

As others have said, don't feel bad about needing the Lexapro - that's what the medication is for, to help you through the tough times. So use it and your coping skills and you'll do great!
Come by and post any time, whether it's to vent, ask questions, or whatever the need may be - we'll be here for you. Again, welcome and we look forward to getting to know you.

Sounds like you have a great husband there..I know how hard it is/guilty you can feel when you seem to be "putting" them through all this..my partner just gently reminds me that he loves me and wants to help. He feels helpless if he doesn't and so I just have to let go and let him be my rock. (lucky me!!).
I'm sure you give him the world and would support him too if situations were reversed...try not to get the guilts..it's one more thing you don't need right now. I'm glad you made it through the night ok...hugs xx
