I'm tired of the pain, and despairing/losing hope -
I start to feel a bit better but within days its HELL again :-(

I have been getting anxiety and panic attacks and depression for 10 years now.
It has never gone away, I just try to live with it.
I did try some pills a long time ago but they give me bad side effects so I stopped taking
Then was too scared to try any more. I cannot remember the name of them now.
Had some counselling in the past that helped a bit.
I have not much confidence in my self and feel like the odd one out most of the time
I Hate being on my own.
My childhood was not too great. Had a step dad that always put me down and hit me.
He would not let me go to school that much.
I have no education never had a job, Don’t drive, cannot Read and write too well all I do
right I get it spell checked for me.
I have been married for 6 years now but been together for 12 years I have a son, ten
years of age.
i always feel tense - on edge & anxiety & panicky - i feel stressed! All my muscles aches
and pains me :-( how can i relax?

Are you getting some counseling? Are you in touch with your doctor? After 4 weeks, if you're still feeling this bad, it's time to call the doctor to consider increasing your dose or switching medications. 20mg of Citalopram is not that much.....some people need 40-60mg.

Hang in there and let us know how you're doing.

I posted a reply, but it doesn't seem to have gone through. I must have done something wrong!

Anyway, you have described my symptoms almost exactly. My anxiety is much less severe as of 2 days ago when I started taking Zyprexa. It helps with anxiety, obsessiveness, and is supposed to eventually improve appetite. It doesn't take weeks to kick in. I felt the hugh difference in 1 day. My sister has been raving about this drug for years. She was right. Please ask your doctor about this. I'm also now taking Cymbalta for depression, but it will take weeks before I feel the difference per my MD.

Good luck to you.

Hello muchafraid
 Honey I'm sorry you are going thru all of this. You do need to give yourself more credit and self confadense. I checked out your myspace site and it is awsome. You have done a great job on it and you also have found us here so give yourself a little credit. It wasn't right what you step dad did to you but you can still get you education even over the internet if you wanted too no one can stop you from that. As for as your meds go hun call your dr and let him know there not working for you he can change them up over the phone. Good luck hun and I hope you get to feeling better soon. Please keep posting so we know how you are doing. Bless you and your family.
I have an illness, My illness don't have me.
