Hey y'all
 
I go to doc this am just for refills and then we go visit my stepdaughter and her family for mini xmas. I have been crying all morning and ready to puke I am so anxious. Why? We all love one another and have a good time. We don't have much to give them and they are quite well off but I can deal with that too.
 
I have been sobbing in secret and I am afraid I will be unable to function today-just in one of those funks...and my fibro fatigue is at an alltime high...my husband will not want to go when I am r4ady and company wears me out in a matter of an hour or so...takes so much energy to put on the face. I know I sahould just "buck up" and shut up....anyway, I feel better just writing y'all and like I terll everyone else "even bad days come to an end"
 
Hope y'all are snug and cozy
 
Maggie

I'm genuinely sympathetic with you, Maggie, and hope you will call
your psychiatrist and ask for an anti-anxiety medication prescription strong enough to get you through this episode. I feel sure she would be understanding and glad to help you.

Christmas Holidays bring up some sad as well as happy times. We've all experienced them and know exactly how you feel.

Please try to get something that will comfort you so the afternoon won't be so painful.

Take care.

I.G.

So glad to have you back IG!! I did take a klonopin and am doing better...doctor was a FIASCO and I came home crying(long story) but am doing quite well after a big hug from hubby and I decided to shake it off-good riddance.... and thank you Santa for the klonopin-LOL!!

I'm usually the xmas spirit in the house and I just don't feel it this year, but that is OK...unfortunately, even tho I try , even I fall prey to the over-hype of shopping and greed...so am glad this xmas, we are so broke we made handmade candles and cookies for family and remember what is all about!!

Much peace toyou all-will check in later

Maggie,

You will get through this. It is just anxiety that is playing havoc with you. Shake it off and kick it to the curb. You can do this. Try to relax. You are going to be with people who love you and that is what matters.

Maybe do a little meditation before you go or on the way. I am sure that you are going to have a good time.

Many blessings...

Hugs, Karen

I was just saying, I think Fibro people have so much more anxiety. I suffer from it as well. I got woke up to a earthquake this morning and called my husband. He sounded disappointed that he missed that. Why can't I have a calming attitude. Lol I know it helps with support. I forget to take deep breathes.

Maggie,
I hope that your anxiety has subsided and that you're enjoying your visit with your family.
Gifts or no gifts, they will appreciate just being in your company as much as we do.
Thanks for all of the support you offer and for bringing humor to the forum even when you don't feel very much like laughing.
I admire your spirit and your courage alot.
I hope you can enjoy your day

Hugs to you Maggie.  I have had anxiety and depression since 1982 - I know how you feel.  I get into anticipatory anxiety when I have to go somewhere that is a challenge for me and my insecurities come out to make me even more anxious.  Sometimes what works for me is just getting mad at the dang anxiety and letting those tears out.  I have tried throwing paper plates when I feel angry but what works really well is crushing ice cubes with a wooden mallet.  (Put those cube in a zip lock bag. ) So remember that you are going to see the people you love, you are who you are and if we were all the same life would be very boring.  Be proud of yourself,  know that you have tons of support here always and believe that we do know how you feel.
 
I wish you peace and happiness.

Maggie,

I am so glad that you had a wonderful time. That means a lot to know. It is harder to get yourself out and about, but once you get there, things can go well.

See you in the morning for coffee...LOL...

Hugs, Karen :)

I'm on Zoloft and Resperidone. I'm unusually nervous, seemingly out of the blue. I'd go to emergency but I have really crapty insurance. I'm hanging on, doing everything I can to stay calm, like drink little coffee. I just had my Resperidone increased thinking it would help, but not much. I wonder if an increase in the Zoloft would help. Will call Dr. tomorrow. Thanks much in advance, all.

Don't drink coffee to try to stay calm. It will do totally the oppisite to most. Do some breathing exercises. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth as if you were smelling the roses and blowing out the candles. Practice that. It should calm you down. Do it about twenty times. And focus on your breathing. It takes your mind off of the anxiety. After Christmas I would call your doc, maybe they will just call you in an increase of the zoloft as you feel you need. I take xanax for anxiety. It helps a lot. I take abilify instead of risperdol. It is a lot like it though. But very expensive. Like about 400.00 a month or more. I have insurance, but my copay is really high. The doc writes my script for twice the dosage and I take a half of one a day. That way my prescription lasts two months. That helps me out a lot. Plus they give me samples.

Is there something going on today that might be making you nervous? The holidays can be very stressful at times. Try to focus on the now. What you are doing at that particular time. Try not to think about things that could be causing you to be moody or nervous. This is a special day and you deserve to enjoy it.

Keep posting Artblue,

Hugs and Merry Christmas,
Karen

Today I woke up feeling so much better. Last night some people prayed for me. I also had a few shots of brandy just to calm down. The bottle of brandy I've got is a year old, so that's how little I drink. I also did my Healing Codes and prayers. Whatever the lasting effects, I'm feeling a combination of gratitude and relief. Now if I can just stay this way. I wonder if it took a whole week for the increase in dosage of Resperidone to help? Hmmm...

Even a little relief is welcome, isn't it? I'm glad you are feeling better(even after the brandy-LOL)...gratittude helps me all the time with depression...I try to literally count my blessings everyday but we all have those awful days.

Hope you continue to stay positive

Maggie
