Yo Hello Hooray
« on: June 03, 2014, 08:02:38 PM »
This is a post to introduce myself to the community.

I've been dealing with anxiety/depression issues for a few years now I suppose. I'm 25 years old and take Cymbalta daily for general anxiety and depression.

This is my second time being on Cymbalta. When I'm not on the medication I seem to worry myself sick with health anxiety and fears of dying, as well as your typical worrying about money, job, relationships etc. It got to the point of obsessively researching symptoms to diseases I thought I potentially had. The worry was taking over my life and I eventually decided to do something about it.

Since being on the meds I feel better in a lot of ways. Most notably, I'm just happier. My relationships with people around me have never been better (after damaging a few with my issues).

Although I do feel better, I still have moments of panic. One night after researching something...probably cancer or something, I came across this site and started lurking the posts for a bit. Seeing other people commenting on their own struggles made me feel better about my own and I decided to join up.

Anyways, that's me! Any questions, ask away!

How's that for a meaningful post???
