hi. I hav'nt posted for quite a while ( thats a good thing really! ).The reason I am is just to get stuff off my chest really and not have it swirling round my head. I have been off prozac for roughly 3 months now and I have to say I felt pretty good and quite proud of myself. BUT last week all the old anxy feelings came back and I just cant get rid,so been feeling real bad. Anxious all the time,panicky etc. Contant negative thoughts are just swirling round my head...fear of being alone and have nothing to do, my daughter growing up and not needing me...etc. Ive been trying the cbt again and doing my best to relax. I just want it all to go away and for me to be normal again. Do i go back to the doctor?...I didnt want to go back on any meds really and also i want to start trying for another baby.....My head just feels like cotton wool at the moment and its a task just getting through the day. is there any success stories?...can you come off  meds and not re-lapse/go back on them?.....
thanks for listening, jayne

Hi  and welcome back. I am going through a similar thought process as my son has just started school today and is becoming very independant of me - but they will always need their parents. I am 30 and still go and talk to my Mum and Dad and get things off of my chest. Do you keep a journal? I find this helps me, when I am having negative thoughts it is good just to write everything down and then reread it and analyse it. Best of luck, I am sure you will get through this.

Hello and welcome back.  Do not think of this as a failure or relapse but a bump in the road.

Yes anxiety can come back but you have done well before and I was glad to see you are working with the CBT again.  Perhaps with some hard practice you can get ahold of the anxiety and not let it spiral.

If you feel you need to see your physician, remember that is not bad but good that you recognize you need to reach out for a helping hand.

Keep posting here as we care and take our hand, there is strength in numbers. Gentle Hugs to you.
