Hi, I'm new :)
« on: June 18, 2014, 05:46:38 PM »
Hi everyone, I just found this forum and am glad I did....I have recently been diagnosed with anxiety and depression. The anxiety has developed over the past several months but the depression has been around for a longer while. I just never sought help because things would always get better. The symptoms of the anxiety have been scary for me, as I didn't know what was happening and was sure I had something seriously wrong with me. There have been several "bad" events in my life since December, the biggest of which is my mom being diagnosed with lymphoma and getting very sick. She's still sick with complications and in the hospital. My doctor finally put me on Zoloft when I went to him a third time for help. I am on a titrate dose, increasing every four days, so today is day two of 100 mgs. My limit will be 150. I also have Clonazepam as a sort of bridging med until the Zoloft kicks in fully. I feel a LOT better and don't get the really strange and weird feelings anymore, but there are days when I don't feel quite right and just want to lie down and do nothing. Anyone else feel like this? A few ppl have suggested that I may have PTSD due to the impact of my mom's illness. My mom and I very close, btw, so it's been extremely hard on me. So, that's me. I look forward to reading through the posts and meeting members who can relate and hopefully give insight. And maybe, I can help someone else too :)
