Why are you listening to what others think? The members here are only giving you their views and if you and your Physician feel you need medication then you make the decision. We are not professionals.
I take meds, others don't..........works out good for all.

Hey there, good advice from Lyn. I agree you need to get a good physical from your doctor. Write down your concerns so you are sure to cover all your issues. I am so sorry you are having issues.
Take care and feel free to start a thread of you own.
Whoaaaaaaa sweetie, it is going to be OK.
Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, a person should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of the problem. A person could get some fresh air, listen to some music, or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things.
Learn to take it one day at a time. Instead of worrying about how you will get through the rest of the week or coming month, try to focus on today. Each day can provide us with different opportunities to learn new things and that includes learning how to deal with your problems. Focus on the present and stop trying to predict what may happen next week. Next week will take care of itself.
One of the best remedies for anxiety is to talk about it. Here's where good friends and family can come in. The old adage "A problem shared is a problem halved"
Look how many you have here on HealingWell to help you through the tough times and to share your thoughts and feelings with.
I understand your feelings about the meds. How about therapy?
Keep taling to us and know we care.
I think you fixed your snafu re replies.
I am so sorry you are going through this rough time. I understand about the job anxiety. I too should have looked into using my short term and long term disability from my job but I had no one to talk to and was in such rotten shape at the time, I chose early retirement. My boss knew what was going on and she never mentioned talking to HR about disablility............I still feel very betrayed that no one came forward and helped me.
So yes do check with your Physician about disability and know it will take a long time and lots of paper work but when you are finally approved, you will be paid back to the date your filed for the disability.
My heart goes out to you and your Mom as I am sure she wishes things could be as they were.
Know we are always here and someone will respond to you so postyour thoughts and fears right here.
Big sis, I am here now and I got news for you.............
I will visit with the members til you get back.
Hugs and Love,
