Glad I came across this supportive site.
Taking meds for depression and panic attacks - also for low thyroid.
I am tired all of the time. Dr. said I have fatigue markers in my blood test.
Currently taking synthroid, zoloft, wellbutrin, tranxene.
I have had panic attacks since I have been a child, and the depression has always been with me - a cloud hanging over my head.
At home there is a lot of care-taking for my dad, my husband handles it well, I am feeling very trapped. I can't seem to go with the flow. We have been here 24-7 for over five years dealing with so many problems. I do well with the medical aspects, maybe that is why I take things harder, I am talking with the doctors about what we need to do for dad.
Then there is me...no freetime. Even if I get it, I don't feel it, my stomach is always just scared of what is next.
My husband tries so hard to get me to do what will make me happy. I am glad he is still hanging in there with me.
We enjoy getting out just the two of us. Honestly, I also have social anxiety....makes holidays tough. As well as celebrations, I feel embaressed with my weight and talking to people. Again I can't go with the flow, I get nervous. I sometimes feel he deserves so much better.
I have been reading your board about zoloft and weight gain...hmm...
My mom passed over twenty years, parents have had soooo many surgeries. Taking care of dad is getting overwhelming. Don't think I can sleep at night if he were in a nursing home, and we really can't afford it.
I know I have a lot going on, but I can honestly say, the meds help, but I am nowhere near being happy. (I have gone through counseling)
I am wondering in changes in meds will help?
I am still looking for answers. Looks like a nice group here. Any advice?
