confused   :-)   Hi, 
 
I have just joined this website, with the hopes of being able to speak to people, I will not feel like the only one going through this problem. 
 
Finally decided to see a therapist for my anxiety attacks, because, I do not want to wake up every morning for the rest of my life with these anxiety attacks, just knowing that I will wake up every morning with them is making me crazy.  Went to see a therapist for the first time and on my second visit had one of the worst attacks in a long time.  Actually called her to cancel on my appointments, when she suggested that I need to keep seeing her, but also speak to my primary care for a prescirpion for antii anxiety medications when the attacks become unbearable, but after one of those attacks I am wiped out for days.   I am not one to take medical intervention for issues of the head, and feel guilty about doing so, as to me it is a sign of weakness anyone else out there have ever felt this way?
 
A lot has happened in the last two years of my life, my mom died, my sisters husband died and left her witih a son who is severly autistic and a 12 year old daugher.  I have a teenager daughter. ............The list goes on, I have joined your forum because maybe just maybe, reading about people in similar situations and being able to write to you guys will help me realize, I am not alone and ease the anxiety. 
 
In just the few minutes I have joined this webiste, I have already feel better.

Hey - alot of us have been there and still are.

The medicines work, they do take there time to kick in. I tried to go off w/o seeing a therapist first, that was a mistake. Im trying Effexor now, ending my thrid week and its kicking in. The week before I started taking it, I questioned if I wanted another drug. I got off Lexapro in Feb. Because I didnt like the side effects. The week I took deciding to take the meds was bad. I had extreme anxiety every morning, to the point that I thought I might not be able to make it to work. I couldnt stand being at work (the source of my anxiety) and would suffer for 8 hours. Finally I made up my mine to get straight again on the meds, then deal with the head issues! My plan now is to stabalize, get therapy, then try for a maintance dose. I think I will need to keep a little of the med in my system, at least until I am a more stable point in life.

Your not alone! Hang in, feel better, do the therapy, and meds can help. Look at kolonopin for anxiety.
 
Keep us posted

Thanks that is great to hear, there is light at the end of the tunnel. and should not feel guilty about taking meds. It is good to keep seeing the therapist to see if I can find a way to deal with the anxiety. I only get the attacks mostly in the mornings and by 11AM they subside. However, as we all know, getting up with that rotten feeling in the pit of your stomach is not a way to start the day. And I agree, while seeing a therapist if we need to take meds along the way, there is nothing wrong with that, we are only humans after all.

Dolores,

Welcome to Healing Well and the A & P Forum. I am Kitt :)

Generalized anxiety disorder often coexists with depression and other mental health disorders, such as panic attacks or phobias. You are in the company of many caring and supportive people who know where you are coming from and what you are going through.

The signs and symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder can vary in combination or severity. They may include:

  • Restlessness
  • Feeling of being keyed up or on edge
  • Feeling a lump in your throat
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Impatience
  • Being easily distracted
  • Muscle tension
  • Trouble falling or staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive sweating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Stomachache
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
Doctors use antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications to treat generalized anxiety disorder and other various types of anxiety disorders.
 
Please continue to see your therapist and consider trying a medication even if it is for short term use.

Again a Warm welcome and stay with us.  Gentle Hugs

Dolores,
 
I'm sorry that you are having a rough time right now, but glad that you found this site.  You will find amazing support here and people who have been and are still exactly where you are.  You have been through alot in the last two years, and it really isn't surprising that panic/anxiety would become a problem with the grief and stress you've experienced.   I understand your hesitation about medication, it's not an easy decision, but I don't believe it's a sign of weakness.  Medication can get you through a particularly rough spot and can stop the p/a from spiralling downward.  Don't think of yourself as weak if you need an anti-anxiety medication right now.  I've taken medication for 17 years and I honestly don't know where I'd be without it, especially during a setback.  Are you practicing cbt with your therapist?  Once you get the hang of it, it does help a great deal.  I was exactly where you are right now back in Oct., every morning was sheer torture, I woke up panicked and it lasted most of the day.  I upped my medication and got back to using cbt regularly and am now doing well anxiety wise.  I'm still dealing with agoraphobia issues, but at least I'm not spending my day in a panic.  You hang in there and keep posting, you will get through this!

i too had a rough time giving into medication. But I'm sure glad i did. It's a tough thing to do for some people, but if you had a broken leg you would seek medical attention and take medication for that. To me, if there is an chemical imbalance taking place, its the same thing. There are lots of things you can do before you try medications, but if you are too far into panic and anxiety, getting a little help from medicine is not a sign of weakness. Its a sign that you want to feel better again. Once you're in a stable place you can learn techniques to help cope with anxiety / depression/ panic. I'm learning all those things now and will stay on medication as long as i need too. I'm proud of myself and all proactively trying to better themselves. For me, medication has helped so much. but i totally understand where you are coming from. Its not weak though. Not at all.

take care!
Dan

I would like to thank you guys for replying to my post.  My therapist said I should keep a journal, but I am one of those people who is not big on writing my feelings in a book.  This is a great place and idea.  You get to write down how you feel and actually have people who ldon't know you, listen, and advise.
 
You also realize, you are not the only one who is going through this and it makes you feel that you are not crazy.
 
Here is an example of why, I have anxiety.  I am the oldest of four, my brother and I have two younger sisters and a brother.
 
Last nite thinking it was okay to chill, my daughter sleeping at a friends house, my husband out to dinner with some friends.
 
My telephone rings and it is my sister, flipping out about one of my mothers cats.   She is such a drama queen,  there is something wrong with Sophie, all her guts are hanging out of her backside, she is going to die tonite what am I going to do, this from a 52 year old woman.  I rush over there, and yes the cat had was hurt, her guts were not hanging out, she was not bleeding, she did not look in pain, and so on.  She doesn't drive, we took the cat they saw her riight away, and she will need surgery as somehow her little backside got ripped open, probably from climbing up and trying to get down from something in the cellar.  Then she starts about how my niece ruined her credit, that's another story.  I just wanted to give you an example of what goes in my life since my mother passed away.  This goes on all the time, I know you are going to tell me that she is a big girl and she deal with these thing, however, my mother brought us up to take care of one another she came from another country and all we have is ourselves to rely on.  Well, need to get ready for work now.  Thanks for letting me vent and thank you all for letting me know, if I need to take meds for a while or possibly for the rest of my life it is okay.  Hope all is well with all speak to you soon.  You see, just rabbling her with you folks as already made feel better and maybe today, I won't need the meds.

I thought all the drama queens lived in Minnesota.........lol. Yes you do have a sister that is quick to cry wolf.  The trouble is eventually you quit responding to them and it may be a true emergency.

I think you handled it very well...........Kudos to you.  Just remember she is a drama queen and not going to change.  Do you have voice mail so you can let the call go and then listen to what she has to say and decide if you want to respond?  I know this is a bit sneaky  but if she triggers your anxiety, it might be a way to just listen before reacting. :)

Have a really good day.

Oh gosh, Dolores55, that is exactly how I feel upon rising in the morning. I am having an attack right now, my chest is so tight it feels like it is going to explode. I wake up with that rotten feeling in my stomach every morning, not to mention being shaky, fearful of what the day will bring. I haven't been to a therapist, don't know whether I could go to one. I can hardly talk about my problems over the phone with anyone without getting very nervous and my voice quivers, especially a stranger. I guess that is why it is easier for me to talk on here. That is why I do not think a therapist would be able to help me. I am totally tensed up right now, my back muscles are knotted as well as my abdomen. So hopefully this will subside.

I just read your post and I wanted to let you know, if you don't feel comfortable seeing a therapist face to face, there are one's out there that will do telephone consulations, and as everyone has advised me, don't be afraid to take medications to ease you through the attacks in the morning, while you try to sort out why this is happening to you.
 
This is the first forum I have been to for this issue and let me tell you, it is already doing a world of good.  What you should do is every morning when you get up.  Go to this site and forum and vent your feelings.  No one knows who you are, or were you are from and you can get some really good advice here.  It is only my second day, and just knowing I can vent to strangers makes me feel much better.   Just remember there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.....

Dolores,

Just wondering how you are doing today.  I'm glad that you are finding some comfort here on this site.  It has truly been a life saver for me!  Great idea about coming here in the morning to vent your frustrations and let out your anxiety!  Hope to hear more from you soon.

confused   confused   Not so good today Junebug, Thanks for asking.  My anxiety usually starts on Sundy and gpes on from there, I truly did not want to get up for work this morning but I did.  Can't figure out why some days are better than others though.
 
I took my meds this morning an they still haven't kick in yet?  Maybe my body is just fighting them I don't know.  I see my therapist on Tuesday and see what she thinks.  I am starting to bellieve/admit that I am in a sort of mild depresssion.  Got up late this morning so can stay on site long.  Thanks for caring and speak to you this evening after work.  Of course, the attack will be gone by then it always is.  I just don't understand why this only happens to me in the morning.......  Speak to you folks soon.  Thank you for your kindness.

Dolores,
 
Sorry to hear that your mornings are rough.  That's the way it's always been for me as well.  I just can't seem to get my brain in gear fast enough to cut the anxiety off in the morning.  It does get better, a few months ago, my mornings were the worst, now I'm okay in the morning, so hang in there, it will improve!  Be proud of yourself for getting up and going to work even when you didn't feel like it!  You didn't give in to the anxiety and that's a huge accomplishment!  I think it's pretty normal to have good days and bad and have no apparent reason for the change.  As your anxiety improves, you will have more good days than bad, but until then it's kind of a mixed bag.  I really do hope that tomorrow morning will be better for you, but if it's not, just accept it and keep moving.  You're going to be allright!  I understand the mild depression too, it's hard to keep your spirits up when you feel like garbage so much of the time.  I've learned to accept the mild depression when it comes and just let it be...no sense wasting precious energy on it, it will eventually lift, as long as it's only mild!  Hope to talk to you soon!

:-)  Hi All,
 
Sorry I haven't written in the past week, but have been extremely busy at work.  I work in a telecom call center.  Well, I finally got meds, for some reason my pc prescribed .25mg of Zanax take two tablets twice a day, but it did not to be working to well.  I spoke to my therapist on Tuesday and she made me feel much better as she explained if meds are needed until we get to the route of my morning anxiety it is perfectly okay.
 
I experimented and decided to take on pill at night, when in the morning and one in the afternoon.  I started this regiime on Wednesday night, and I have been actually sleeping through the night.  Last night as I was falling asleep I asked God, please don't let me wake up with a anxiety attack in the morning and to my amazement for the first time in months, I actually woke up without an anxiety twinge at all.   I can't wait to tell the therapist and I wanted to share this with all of you because, there is a light at the end of the anxiety tunnel.  With being on meds "temporarily" so I actually feel normal again and seeing the therapist weekly to get to the route of this issue and not be on meds anymore is something I am striving towards.  To all of you who have these attacks, you all know how it uplifts your feelings and the more they are lifted the less the attacks will become. 
 
Well, I just wanted to share this with all of you.......There is truly light at the end of this tunnel

Hi Dolores, welcome. We all know where you're coming from, isn't it weird that a lot of us wake with severe anxiety. You'd think after a good nights sleep we'd wake happy rather then a scared mess. Don't feel guilty about the meds, you need to live a quality of life.
I woke today and tried my deep breathing and distraction techniques but it's now only 30minutes after taking my meds that I'm starting to feel even a little calmer. i think I should keep my anxiety med by my bed and take it as soon as I wake up as I normally lie in bed to scared to move for 30minutes which only compounds the problem.

Dolores,

I'm so happy for you that you found a combination of meds and therapy that are working for you, sometimes that can be such a battle just to find the right meds.  I take xanax as well and it really works for me.  I really hope that your mornings continue to get better, but don't get too discouraged if you have a bad one every once in a while, remember it's only temporary!  All my best too you!

I know what you mean. The more you think and worry about taking your meds, the worse the anxiety gets. It's like you are only defeating the purpose, and causing the anxiety to get even worse. For now, I will take my meds in 8 hour intervals (my doctor prescribed .25mg of Xanas two tablets twice a day) but a I stated before this did not seem to be doing the trick and like yourself I waited until the attack came on. Now, even though I am not having an attack coming on I take one tablet 3 times a day and you know what I didn't get up this morning with an attack "at all". I will continue to work witih my therapist and takes the meds, it is such a relief not to have those feelings in the morning as you know it ruins your whole day. The longer you go without an attack, the better your chances are of not getting them altogether, as well as, not having to take the meds anymore. I may be wrong, but in my opinion, after a while your mind and body get conditioned to these attacks and no matter what you do they will not go away, if you get them to go away with meds temporarily and your body adjust to no more attacks find out what is causing them and there is a good chance of reconditioning your mind and body so that your coping mechanism goes back to were it is supposed to me. This seems to be working for me, speak to your therapist and see if he/she thinks it may work for you. Good luck Aussieangel.

Hello All,
 
Well I haven't posted in about a week and just wanted to fill you in on what has been happening.   As you all know my doctor has put me on Xanax, however, the directions she gave me for taking them was not working to well on the morning anxiety so I experimented.
 
I take one at night at around 9:00P (.25MG), one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and I am happy to report that for the last three days, I have had a good nights sleep and have not awakened with any anxiety/panic attacks. 
 
Talked to my therapist today, and she explained that as long as it works and I keep seeing her to find out why I am getting the attacks there is nothing wrong with taking the meds.  I still have a bit of an issue regarding having to take them.  Also, in talking to her about issues (I don't know how to say no to anyone), I am starting to put my foot down on and say no to favors or what other people want me to do or think I should be doing.  Also, since my mother and brother passed away and finding out the people I know in my age group are passing away has probably what has been freaking me out lately.
 
The reason I am writing this is to let all of you know that you don't have to live with anxiety/panic all of us are different and we need to figure out what is the best way to handle this problem, hopefully, I have found mine and all of you will find yours.  There is a light at the end of the tunnel all you  need to do is believe and trust in God.

"I am not one to take medical intervention for issues of the head, and feel guilty about doing so, as to me it is a sign of weakness anyone else out there have ever felt this way?"

Alot of people can feel like this. but you soon learn to get over your ego and feeling ashamed of it because instead of it being a weakness for getting this kind of treatment it turns into you actually becoming weak yourself. thats my opinion anyway tongue

  I have a hard time beliving that taking meds for anxiety is a show of weakness at all, in my youth I have been to war in the army and have done things that I did not like doing but falled my orders and do not feel guilty about them for I know it was for a better cause in the long run. but later I came down with A/P crud later on in live and have found that the meds are worth more that trying to go at it alone and have not had a P/A in over 8 months now and have a better feeling and in more control of my A/P them ever before I just hope that you to can find this feeling with in you no matter what you do as I know in my heart that this was the right choice for me even all that I have been though in life.

yeah   yeah
Both of your comments are so on the mark regarding medication.  If I was a diabetic and needed to take insulin for the rest of my life, that is not something to be ashamed off.  I am starting to realize this now.  My mother was a very strong woman and I now realize from my recent behavior and comments from my daughter, that my mom must have suffered for years in silence with anxiety and we never even knew it.
 
Also, most of the people in my life, (family) tell me to just suck it up, the deaths of my mother and brother-in-law just didn't happen to me it but also to them.  I ahve told them over and over you are you and I am me, people handle these types of situations differently.
All I know is that it feels great not to wake up with those attacks anymore and if I need to take medication to keep them away, then so be it.  This is not to say that with the help of my therapist, I may try seeing what will happen if I weaned myself off them, but let me tell you, I am a much better person to live with lately and am starting to feel like my old self again.
 
Today, for the first time in many months I actually enjoyed getting up and putting on makeup as I used to do everyday for years.  It was nice to get so many compliments from the people at work and have them realize that I have been actually feeling better lately.
 
You guys and this forum are a God Send and I am so glad that I have found a place to vent about my fears and my good times.  My therapist told me to keep a journal, but you know what, this is much better, you actually have people who are listening to you.  I guess that's what I needed the most as the person in my life we I felt cared about my feelings, and how I felt is no longer with me where I can see her, and her voice.  Oh, how I wish, I could hear her now with that Italian accent yelling at me about something or other.  She was an extremely intelligent woman, loved to cook, good food, politics and religion, we certainly had some lively discussions.
 
Well good nite to all of you and thanks for listening.

Hey Everyone. I'm a new mother, and new to this site as well. I just found out two days ago that I have Anxiety. I went to the emergency room thinking something was wrong with me, physically. I had a muscle spasm on the left upper abdomen, and sharp pains on my left and right side of my abs/rib area. Than I started having shortness of breath, my boyfriend rushed me to the hospital, while I'm sitting there trying sooo hard to breath. I seriously thought something was wrong, as if I was going to die. The doctor I seen just basically seen me for 2 SECONDS and said "this is not an emergency, come back during walk in hours, you probably just have anxiety" thanks alot right? So I went back as a walk in thinking that doctor was out of his mind, and there had to be something wrong with me. I just had a baby, so I was thinking maybe I'm bleeding inside? Maybe I have digestive problems? (i was having a bubbly feeling in my stomach as well) I thought if I wasn't treated I could have a heart attack. I was thinking of all the worst possible things that could happen to me. Anyway, I went as a walk-in and the doctor I seen was NICE this time and really listened to me. He saw that I had a newborn with me, and knew right then I was just stressed and had anxiety. He prescribed me Valium, 5mg and I've been afraid to take it till tonight. I only took half of that and I feel no pain, which is such a relief. I have been getting nonstop sharp pains all over my stomach to my back and lung area as well. And to finally not feel it for even half an hour is amazing, and I almost feel normal. I hope that I won't have to take valium for a long while, I'm sure once I'm back to "normal" after having a kid.. I will be okay. I hope... and wish.. and pray that it goes away once I get my body back, and feel good again. Are there any new mothers out there that have the same symptoms as me? I hate feeling these sharp pains all over.. and the bubbly feeling in my stomach, it's not painful at all, just uncomfortable and makes me think something more is behind all the physical pain.

Good Morning New Mother and Welcome,

I am not a new Mother but I have had 4 children. If you are experiencing anxiety I would strongly suggest you see you OB-GYN physician or the physician who cared for you during you pregnancy.

You posted "He saw that I had a newborn with me, and knew right then I was just stressed and had anxiety. He prescribed me Valium, 5mg"

Please tell me that he explored other reasons for your pains ? Please remember a walk in clinic is good for a quick check up of minor issues but nothing replaces your personal physician.

Again Welcome.  Stay with us and keep posting.  You may want to start a New topic so erveryone will have a chance to meet you :)

Hey Kitt, Thanks for the reply. Well, when he saw me he really listened to what I had to say. He said some of the pain could be from me swelling inside, and just my body trying to get back to normal. Even though we talked for a good while, he took some chest X-rays to make sure nothing was wrong. Everything came back normal.  He said I was a bit tender in my ab area, due to possible swelling... and also prescribed me Naproxen for that. I did set up an appointment though so they can check everything. I'm going to ask for maybe blood tests as well to make sure it's nothing serious. I hope nothing is physically wrong with me, as much as anxiety can be scary, it can also be cured. I will start a new topic though, didn't know I can do that :) Thanks for the advice though. This site is very helpful, and just to know people are going through similar things as I am, makes me feel like I'm not alone in this, and support is right here.
