Hi. Wow, I am in the same place as you are right this very minute.
I have a terminally ill father living with me and my sister is living with us to help
My Dad has been getting worse over the past few weeks. I have been diagnosed with
Panic Disorder/Depression. Mind you, I had Panic Disorder years ago... and just delt with basically
anxiety until until now... Now, I have MAJOR Panic Attacks and now Depression. My Mom took
time off of work and came up to help out. I feel like I am falling apart and feel so alone. I have
never felt like this before and it is really hard feeling like this all the time. I find myself counting
down the weeks of me feeling this way.
I have a husband and a son to take care of and I am finding it so hard to do all of the simple
I have been to the Dr. numerous time over these past 5 weeks and they all say to see a
therapist... which i'm doing. I tried Zoloft for 4 days and had a reaction to it... I really feel
like I want to try something else like Lexapro... or something.
I also feel like I am better when my Husand is home... I am not wanting to drive as much as
before, I obsess about having an illness ( from the physical symptoms), I feel like I just want
to lay down and sleep, I feel bad like I am a burden to my family. I was the one who did
most everything and now i can't do half of what i once did.
I just wanted to write and tell you that there IS someone going through the same thing you
are... If you ever want to exchange e-mail address' let me know. It would be nice to chat
back and forth with someone going through something similar.
Take care of yourself and God Bless.
