Just when things calm down, it gets crazy AGAIN! So I've been fighting with horrid depression and anxiety since October. I was put on prozac and it has helped so much! So things were calming down, I got a job that I'm enjoying and helps keep my mind busy. My husbands job was doing ok and we were starting to get our money plan going.

Yeah, real life comes back. A big computer company is going to be closing it's doors soon, so that leaves only the one my husband works for. So now any options are, none, if something happens. And now what will the company my husband works for do. There will now be alot of cheaper labor out on the work force and could they go around and lay off a bunch of the higher paid workers?

Then last week a person decided to play "drive though" in our back yard. Took out sections of the fence, the deck, broke the sliding glass door, the grill and smoker, the patio funiture and the wooden swing set. So now having to deal with insurance companies and what not. It's been crazy. Thankfully no one was hurt.

I'm feeling the anxiety again and I'm tired. It's not as bad as it was a few months back, but it's hard to keep it at bay.

I got much help from claire weekes advice

float, dont fight

in other words, accept everything and make the best of it

a typical prozac dose range is 20 to 80, if on a low dose, maybe discuss upping it with doc

 

many docs seldom think of adjusting an AD dose

Suzy,
 
no wonder you are feeling anxious and panicky.....look at all that has happened all at once......Just try to breath, this will pass, just not as fast as we would like it to.

I am on 40 of prozac and once in awhile I will do 60. Not often though. I tell myself it will all pass and all the damage will be fixed and I am truely happy that no one was hurt. If my kids had been out there at that time....yikes!

I am trying to let go of the " my husband's job" thing, and I do ok for awhile, then more news will come out and get me going again. I tell myself it's just not his job, it's any job that he could have could be this way and it won't do any good to worry about it. Works for awhile. LOL

Hey Suzy, no wonder you are feeling more anxious, that's a seriously bad week!!

As Harry said, try not to fight the anxiety and try not to worry about things that might happen.  Or might of happened.  There is no use in dwelling on the negative (spoken by a chronic negative dweller!! lol) A smart person said to me once that wherever we have our attention focused is what our life will reflect.  Focus on the bad and that's what you get.  Be thankful for what didn't happen and move on to happier thoughts.  I hope your anxiety improves suzy ((hugs))

Kinda numb at the moment, except for a headache. I go to work today, at times I wish I had not of gotten a job, but I know it's good for me to get out, and I only work for five hours.

Thanks so much for caring all of you. It helps alot.

"If, But and Maybe"....These are all pitfall words for us worriers and should be banned from our thinking language lol.
Deal with the day ahead Suzy...let the future take care of itself..'whatever will be will be'...
Because of what you have been thru you are armed with knowledge and skills to deal with anything that comes your way! And what's more you have us - your HW family to fall back on OK?!
Take good care.

Today is ok, I got off work early yesterday.....so nice! It was dead and there were to many of us......so hubby and I got our shopping done and then did some running around.

Since we are getting new carpeting in the family room....due to the girl playing "drive thru" in our back yard and breaking the sliding door glass....we have decided to change things around. We want to get a small couch to put down here. Our computer are down here now. So we went couch shopping! Found exactly what I want, just can't buy it yet.

I'm still fighting a cold, but I don't feel to bad. It's snowing out....again. But I'm feeling ok today.
