Hi all. I have been having another bad day. Couldn't sleep last night and have no appetite although I know I need to eat. I'm stressing that me not eating much is making everything worse. Dr. gave me clonazepam this morning and I took one and had a nice little nap. Just here for alittle support.

Take some more Klonopin this evening and have a good nights sleep.  It is very important for your well being.  We have all had very bad days, they shall pass, first be kind to yourself.

If you are unable to eat, atleast you need to get you some ensure drinks so you will have the right nutrition and it will bring peace to your mind. And I know that not eating will make you feel bad and cause anxiety. Things will get better for you. Watch some television and light some candles up in your house. Think of all the good things in your life. Tell yourself that you will beat this anxiety. The medicine that you are taking should calm you down, but still try and relax and make sure you are breathing correctly. Ask someone to give you a foot massage. Its relaxing. Well hope you get better.

I totally agree with Anastasia
You need to supplement your not eating'I have been at 88 lbs and was threatened by doc to be tube fed
A/P and depresion were doing this to me as well
I was NOT showing my teen daughter a good role model and I now eat a few small meals a day ......
OR drink ensure shakes eat a caramel sundae.......

Great input all /// Anastasia really good input.thank you all ........

Thanks for the advice. My boyfriend brought me some ensure and it made me feel a little better knowing I'm getting some nutrients. I also was able to eat some spaghetti noodles and a couple potato chips.
Much Love,

When I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety and panic attacks. I couldn't eat. I started drinking ensure, eating yogurt and food that would go down easy. The doctor put me on klonopin and at first it made me sleepy, but then I took a 1/2 at a time and it has really helped me. I'm also on Zoloft. I've gained weight and now I need to slow down on my eating. but I'm so happy that I'm able to eat that I don't mind the weight gain. I'm sure things will work out for you. Just take it easy and keep sipping on those supplements. Have a good day. Dee

I agree with everyone else, not eating is going to do nothing but cause you more problems.  When I get depressed I have a lot of problems eating and have had to resort to drinking ensure so that my body is still getting the nutrients it needs.  It's hard to eat when you feel so down, I think it's because we are in such a dark place that eating is the very last thing we want to think about.  We know what our bodies need but it's just so much effort to do anything about it.  So drink the ensure and when you feel like it just eat small amounts of things that you really like (indulge in those things you wouldn't normally;) ) and are easy on your system.
Remember to be good to yourself and just take things a day at a time - that's what seems to work the best for so many of us.  Please keep posting to let us know how you are doing.
