Hey Lil sis great thread...
I remember I was doing somewhat okay coping as you may and then I too felt SOMETHING was just not right
The first PDOC I saw put me on zoloft and told me to " put my thoughts ( in head) in a box and close the lid "
Needless to say I never saw him again and I have not taken any ssri's as I take Valium as needed and that does me just fine .........do CBT and self help techniques and have Healing Well family
I KNOW I wasnt right I was crying out for help I was afraid to be alone .....afraid of everything and for my own sanity .........alone and afraid and that is NOT ME
I KNEW I had to get it together for Cait and myself I had quit drinking ( 1979) and I did it w/o too much of a hassle so I knew I COULD fight this bleeding monster too .......
It was NO picnic for sure and I fought my way thru Hades one day at a time one baby step at a time and I am able to say I HAVE made great strides ....IMHO.........
THIS is a great thread and I do hope many more
open up and talk about
this DD we know as anxiety/panic / can lead to depression too
