Hi everone i just found this site while checkin out info on anxiety and depression. Ive been having a hard time lately feeling really crappy.I have social anxiety and new ones depression...and the kicker derealiztion! scares the hell out of me. When i go out with friends i get paranoid and things feel surreal, i feel like im someone else at times or im missing out on some sick joke, its just a terrible feeling.
Ive had anxiety for yrs and managed to take control for the last 3 yrs untill this relapse last sept from a bad reaction to a drug which lasted for days! i felt insane. Its like the anxiety was trapped behind a floodgate for 3 yrs and it exploded. Ive since seen a psychologist for the first time because i thought i was loosing it. Im starting cognitive therapy but i think i need to get on a med for this depression/derealiztion. .Last night i had another surreal episode so Ive been crying today, im trying to do relaxation and other exericses but its a total different feeling to me now.
I have been on effexor in the past and i felt horrible, so im scared of taking a med. My new dr now is saying that the effexor was too strong for me and they think i should try a more subtle med. I guess i shoud try a new one?
anyways thanks for listening, ill be around here alot more
