Hey, my name is Erick, and I recently joined this site a couple of weeks back, but started a thread in the anxiety section, thinking it was what I had. I was recently told by my therapist that I have depression, with anxiety, although I beg to differ with the depression part. It's been about a month and 2 weeks since everything had started, which may have been caused by a night of casual drinking. It started out by me feeling very out of it, almost like a state of depersonalization, where things felt quite off and I felt like my body was physically somewhere, but my mind wasn't. It was causing me to lose focus, zone out, and often worry profusely to the point it was almost making me sick and felt as if I was going crazy. These feelings had caused me to have panic attacks and sleepless nights, but they starting getting better when I took the Xanax that was prescribed to me. The past few weeks have been much better since, but I still can't shake the depersonalized feeling, and every now and then it does cause anxiety, stresses me out, and sometimes even creates small panic attacks as well. Just this week, I met with a psychiatrist, who put me on a 3-week trial of Cymbalta, and I just started it yesterday. I know that new medicine like this takes some time getting used to and can cause certain side-effects at first, but I was feeling pretty good throughout the day yesterday after first taking it, only feeling like two symptoms (drowsiness, diarrhea). However, last night was absolutely horrible for me, because I did not sleep one bit and constantly worried about being on this medication, and whether it was right for me, if I really needed it and if I supposed to be on something like this. All this anxiety was built up, and although I should have taken a Xanax, I didn't, and pretty much the fear kept up. So I'm kind of worried now, and I guess I'm just looking for some advice or something to keep some peace in my mind, before I contact my therapist.
