Hey Machelle, Sweetie,
I am with you on the meds as some days I feel good and then I will have 2-3 days of anxiety and feel on the verge of tears all day. I am afraid to switch to another med do to the "what ifs?" Changing meds is hard as you have to wean off one and on to another and what if it doesn't make it better but worse. So I feel like you, alone and isolated a lot. I do practice all the breathing exercises and trying to stay in the moment which helps some.
I keep telling myself I am a good person and I am productive. You sure are if your a stay at home Mom. Your children are lucky.
Yeah the gas prices are really tough right now. Keep on posting and know we care for you. You are family here in the A & P Forum.
