I am new here. Really glad I found this site. I was on another site that was really good but not very active. could go for days without a reply or talking to anyone, and it really does help to talk to others who understand what you are going through. If you want to hit that site you can see my history. A little backround, I am divorced and remarried with a 13 year old daughter, if any of you know what that is like, we used to be best buds but now not so much, from what I understand it is her age and I need to adjust to it, it is quite an adjustment, especially when I feel ike this, but I guess they all go through this stage. She is a great kid, straight A's, very active, just doesn't need her mom so much and I feel like I need to be needed. sounds like we all have a difficult time in the morning, I start feeling better around 2 in the afternoon and then am pretty normal the rest of the night unless something "triggers" my anxiety. Don't know if it is because I take the meds in the morning and they aren't as much in my system when I wake up, I just want to wake up and feel like myself instead of feeling sick. I started on 10 lexapro 2 and a half weeks ago but it seemed to make me more anxious so I cut to 5 on Monday and it does seem to help. maybe have to up once I get used to it but I think the 10 to start was a little much. I took it a year and a half ago and the 10 worked miracles, and pretty quickly, but maybe just too much this time, and needs a little more time. Really hoping it will fully be in my system soon and I can be more consistent with my moods,. My husband had knee surgery monday and he and my daughter really need me at my best. Howlyncat, what made your mornings better. it is really tough to start your day this way. I used to be able to hop out of bed and do a ton before work, now I am lucky I get up. don't like the example I am setting for my daughter, glad I found you guys,
I will stay here, as it really helps,
hoping you all have better days,
scaredycatI edited out the other site as it is a site similar to HW and thus not allowed to be posted here.
