Thanks everyone! I'm excited that I feel like the medication is starting to work. I have yet to increase my dose and am still considering it, but for now I feel a lot better.
I even typed this post yesterday after having a few setbacks. I had a panic attack in the pedicure chair which really upset me. However, I realized that the zoloft has helped me see that I can live through a panic attack here and there.
I guess right now I would say I'm living with panic disorder. In a positive way though. I Think it's sort of what my acceptance and commitment therapy is trying to get me to do. Change the way I look at panic. I've not mastered this yet, but I feel like I'm making progress and that's all I can ask for.
I hope that all of my Zoloft posts have been helpful and not annoying! I just searched for posts about
Zoloft on here one day and needed to see some people's experiences, so I hope that mine will help others too.
Zoloft is just a tool though. It's the ladder out of the dark hole, as my therapist says and now it's time to work on the therapy, do exposures, do my meditations and get better at living with my anxiety.
Hope everyone is feeling good. It's been hard to keep up on the board because there are so many new people!!
