I have been diagnosed for about 3 years now. I knew there was something wrongwith me before that but had no idea it was something like this. I just thought I was screwed up, you know? I still have a real hardtime with it. I have a great career, and a great husband, but both have suffered greatly because of my emotional problems as well. As I am self employed but also the major earner in the household, that can be a problem.
I take a fairly weak drug called Celexa which is nearly the same as Paxil, which gave me bad bouts of the shakes. I also take Lorazopan. Every day is a fight to cope, and I often think of 'quitting'. I'm scared all the time. My husband doesn't know how to help and though he tries so hard, he usually ends up pickingthe wrong thing to say or do, and that is causing stress. I could go on for hours about this bit it comes down to, I don't know what to say to him, I don't kno wwhat to do and I have no one to help me. I feel like i'm drowning in open air. I don't even know how to really explain this... am I making any sense?
