Thanks so much for the support guys! It means a lot.
I tried taking Lexapro, but the side effects were nasty, so I stopped after a few days. I started seeing a therapist and it's been helping. But it's so tough, it's kind of that "what came first, chicken or the egg". I feel like my symptoms cause my anxiety. But it's a vicious cycle. Everyday I get up, hoping I feel fine psychically, and of course that never happens to the anxiety just cycles.
The therapy is helping, but I still feel like crap physically. On a better note, I am starting to feel a touch more like myself, as I've been working 20% less, lol. One of the worst parts with anxiety is the bewildered feeling, where everything seems like a dream, or doesn't feel real.
I just wish this abdominal bloating/pressure would just go away.
Anxiety is sooooo miserable! Thanks for the support guys. Never hesitate to PM me if I can ever return the favor or offer you any support!
