Hi everyone! hopefully everyone is having a good day because i am not
. So here is my story, i have had several bouts with anxiety throughout the last 5 or so years, only one that i took medication for. So recently me and the wife decided to have our first kid, and this has just sent things into a tizzy for me. It started with anxiety so i went to my GP Doc and got back on lexapro and i joined the anxiety forum here
. As many have experienced things got a lot worse before they got any better. So during my adjustment time i decided to go see a pdoc and start therapy. i also began to feel signs of depression soon after we upped the dose of lex from 10mg to 20mg. and over the last week its gotten really bad. long story short over the last 1.5 months i have been on lexapro 20mg and last week we added wellbutrin SR 100mg 2x per day. and i am seeing the therapist. This is my first bout with depression and i am very scared.
So here is my question are there any people here who do a fair amount of travel for work? i ask because i do, i am usually home for weekends but am gone probably 50-75% of weeks during the year. How do you handle traveling so much and being out of touch with your comfort zone? My wife is my comfort zone but i try not to talk too much about
the depression when i am out of town because i think this just makes her worry more and feel like she can't help over the phone.
Also i'm trying to find a local support group but am not having any luck finding anything, anyone have any insight?
Sorry for such a long post, i really like this forum, i read several posts here that made me cry in a good way (which made me feel better today BTW), ok i'll shup now.
