I'm usually over on the Depression Board, but I've also been diagnosed with anxiety.  I take 5 mg of Celexa a day and sit in front of a light box for 30 minutes every morning.  This combination seems to be helping.  (I had started out on Wellbutrin XL, but after a while it seemed to have lost its effect.)  I've been seeing a therapist for one year now and we're just now starting to work on some of my "issues".  To help me keep going I'm looking for some friendly support to keep on keeping on.  Any motivational or inspiring stories would be great!  Thanks a bunch! :-)

Hi and welcome, we are always open and glad you are here.  I brought to the top for you a post re successes and it will inspire you to see that people do make it through.

I am an example as 17 months ago I had to resign my management position due to Anxiety and Depression.  I had worked at the same job for 26 years.  This week I just started a very casual part time job working at a much lower stress job.  It took me 17 months to make it through but I am actually out with the people again instead of hiding out.

You will make it too.  I know you will.
