It's been a good few months since I've posted(the last time was back at the end of the summer), and I'm posting this now because I'm right in the middle of an anxiety attack. Pretty sure I know what brought it on, and I'd like to know if anybody else has had relapses before and what you did to cope. Here's what I think caused it:
a month and a half ago I began tapering off my Celexa medication. Two weeks ago I had my last pill.
2. Last weekend was the last night I would be performing with a theater group that I've been a part of for the past four years.
3. There was a question of whether or not one of my bosses would be leaving to take another position. He's been a great guy to work for. Fortunately I received word today that he will be staying.
4. A very stressful morning at work with a big problem that needed to be fixed as quickly as possible.
So, as usual with me, a bit of an event cascade. Those who remember me from a few months back know that I don't deal with major life changes very gracefully, and the past week presented me with two major possible life-changes. Started feeling sick, and I've been sitting in my office shaking a bit for the past hour. When I get this type of panic attack I also tend to get de-realization, so right now it's as if I'm sitting here in my office chair and my surroundings are unfamiliar to me.
*sigh* I've been doing very well the past few months too. Anyone have any suggestions? I really thought I was getting control of this and suddenly I'm faced with this setback. How am I going to be able to live life if I can't even handle the <i>possibility</i> of change?
Suggestions, empathy, 'stiff-upper-lip's and anything else are welcome.
