Feeling crazy
« on: May 12, 2014, 05:42:21 PM »
I have struggled with anxiety as long as I remember. I was diagnosed by a doctor right before I went off to college as having GAD and bipolar "tendencies." I refused to take any medicine because of a fear of how I wouldn't feel anything.

I finally became so overwhelmed with everything about two and a half years when I start teaching fill-time will finishing school. My anxiety was affecting my digestive issues to the point where I couldn't get through the day. he medicine and my other support systems (faith in Christ, husband, and friendships), I felt like I was able to breathe again.

A new job and move changed this. My medicine stopped working and many of friends were now far away. My anxiety was almost self-fulfilling because it overwhelmed me in social situations to where even though I tried I couldn't make friends.

Trying to find a balance between yet another new medicine and counseling. I know God has the ultimate glory. I just wish the anxiety and depression weren't so overwhelming by myself.

It is so refreshing to see there are other people leaning on God through this process. I will be praying for you and we can talk if you'd like.
