Hi everyone this morning has started off bad already I woke up shaky again i'm so tired of this feeling. I'm still having crying episodes i'm not sure if they are from the depression or if they are panic attacks of some kind. I"m so weak emotionally I went and seen my new therapist yesterday i'm not so sure we are gonna be right for each other but i'll give it another session to make sure. This morning I go see the Psychiatrist this is a new one for me. So i'm a bundle of nerves I don't want him going crazy with my medication like the last one did. But i'm trying to stay calm. I'm just so tired of shaky all the time i'll watch my hands to see if they are shaking and most of the time their not so it's inside shaking I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin again not feel like my insides are gonna jump out any minute. I get scared because i'm on medicine and this is still going on but i've only been on some of this medicine a couple of weeks you think maybe that's it? Well hope everyone is doing good today thanks for listening.....April

Hey, April. I can relate to the symptoms that arise as soon as you open your eyes. My heart races and skips beats every morning. Tell yourself it's just anxiety and it's harmless. Shakiness is very common among us nervous people. I get that in the mornings, too.

I keep everything by my bed in the morning for the racing episodes. I have my Ativan, a book to read, books on anxiety and my journal. Sometimes I'll do biofeedback until my heart goes back to normal. If we let these symptoms come and don't freak out about them, they'll eventually go away.

Good luck with your appt. with the psychiatrist!

Hang in there April. Its good that you are giving the therapist another shot. i shake alot as well, my students have noticed it (for me its a side effect of a very old fashioned AD i was prescribed when i was 15. it did damage to my nervous system, so now my hands shake all the time) but you do what you have to do to get by.

keeping you in my thoughts
