Hi, thanks so much for the welcome and the responses. I'm so happy I found you all and am looking forward to talking to people and supporting when I can.
I had a good visit with my psychiatrist today. I wrote out a list of what was bothering me. I even told him that I was so anxious that I wanted to chew my arms off (I real feeling I have had, haha!) I told him about my headaches and my tension (and he said that Effexor can have that side effect). We gave it a fair enough shake and it's time to get on the med merry go round!
He gave me 3 days worth of 37.5 mg of Effexor XR to take for the next three days. I am going to begin 20mg of Lexapro first thing in the morning. Even though it pooped out on me before, he said that there is no reason not to try again. Maybe the time lapse will help it put my back to happy land. I had moments of dull, emotionless, shell-of-a-person times, but during high anxiety periods it was exactly what I needed. I can always back down when serious times of stress are over with. We all know they come and go!
So, I feel happy today!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you again for your kind responses. I work on the computer most of the time and I consider myself a supportive friend and I look forward to getting to know everyone!
