Am I heading in the right direction?
« on: June 17, 2014, 12:52:49 AM »
Hi,

So I now realise that I need to get help to learn to manage and control my anxiety. I am not going mad or crazy but I want to lead my life in a better way.

So here's what I have done.

Started meds - never done that before but fingers crossed that they will make a difference.

Trying to be positive - find a few things everyday that feel like I am making progress

Accepting help - I am trying to acknowledged my weakness at the moment but that's hard.

Remembering that I'm loved - I got dumped by my boyfriend just as I got ill but I have amazing kids, family & friends.

And finally and this is the hard one - when life dumps an issue on me I am trying not to panic. This is proving to be a challenge as I have a difficult business issue to resolve but hopefully I can find a way.

I would really like to hear anyone's thoughts on my plan - am I misguided or headed in the right direction?

Jeanette

Seems perfect to me. Just remember we all have bad days and setbacks. Might not always go as you may have planned. Just accept those days as setbacks. They happen. Put them behind you and keep moving forward. It can be a hard road to climb. But if you believe in yourself you will get there in the end.

Yes definitely on the right path!!!! what meds are you on? I started lexapro (estitalopram) 2 weeks ago and I *think* I am already seeing better moods and less panic! Good luck  :action-smiley-065:

Thanks for the positive comments - much appreciated.

Leah2013 - I am taking 20mg of Citalopram. Good days & bad days but starting to have an effect. Also using hypnosis app to relax when i cannot sleep.Really pleased yours are having an effect.

Take care
