Just when I thought I was starting to feel a little better, I got a call from my husband that his unemployment was denied (they reversed the original determination).  I feel like we just can't catch a break, and needless to say, my anxiety is sooooooooooo bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I feel like there is no end to these disappointments and I don't know how to help myself................

Im so sorry a.l. We talked about that not long ago, about the domino effect, they are so mean for changing thier decision, what a crock :( Try to keep your mind busy on other things, i know its alot easier said than done, but it does help the anxiety some. find a good book, good music, anything that will relax you and make you forget. My doc told me recently, not to worry so much about things, its a wasted emotion and its time you will never get back, so be happy and keep looking up. I hope things get better so soon, HUGS

Thanks, everyone, for your replies.  You don't know how much I appreciate your words of encouragement (as I sit here at work crying confused )
Yes, we are going to try to appeal again, but at this point I feel like we won't get anywhere.  My husband is completely dejected and demoralized and now I have added worrying about him to my list of worries (typical, right! :-) ). He is normally such an upbeat, positive person and I know he is trying to stay strong for my sake, but I can tell that he is down.
Don't know whether I should make a doctor's appointment at this point (I do have a call in to the therapist for an appointment)- was doing so-so with the Zoloft, though not great (mornings were so good, but as the day went on I felt better) and this new "punch" has me very upset. Maybe once the initial "shock" of the unemployment denial wears off I'll feel stronger- and I know that no amount of meds can take problems away-only masks them- so I don't know if adding Wellbutrin (as the doctor had suggested we may end up doing) or switching to something like Lexapro would do me any good- or if I just need to ride this through... It's bad enough having the A/P- why does everything else have to happen!?
Well, again, thanks for your concern!!
