Happy New Year!
Hello Awty - yes I remember your reply from the Anxiety forum and am thankful for your insight. I find it kind of neat that someone I don't know would be thinking about me, so thank you for that as well:)
Thank you, Karen, for the warm welcome. I have to admit I have avoided this forum for a long time because I was afraid it would simply make my depression worse. After reading some of the posts, I realize how wrong I was and look forward to getting to know everyone a little better.
Hey bayoub2 and Chartreux - I am on meds (Cymbalta 120mg and Klonopin 1mg every 12 hours) and they do absolutely nothing! Before Cymbalta, I was on Effexor to no avail and before that, Paxil. The Paxil worked for a little while but after 8 years it pooped out on me. I am now awaiting psychiatric evaluation as my GP doesn't know what to do with me anymore, lol! (I don't know why I find that funny). Also, I started seeing a therapist in September and have gotten steadily worse since (is that normal?) Anyway, I also work with a ton of CBT workbooks, so I am trying my best to climb out of this. I guess my New Year's resolution will be to "be less crazy";) And thank you both for being so welcoming. I'm at a very low point at the moment, so it means a lot.
Hi TMJ! How are you? Yes, I am from QC and last I checked I am female. It is nice to see familiar names and thanks for the welcoming message.
Again, thank you all!
