Worrying about worrying...anyone else?

I am two months postpartum and worry about everything and have been put on lexapro for the anxiety which I've been taking for about a week and I'm hoping that it will do me some good. Everyone tells me "don't worry" ...but that makes me worry about not worrying. I also constantly worry about how I'm feeling and worry about getting better and then the anxiey coming back. I hate this and I want it to go away and never come back.

Re: Worrying about worrying...anyone else?

the lexapro should eventually help

some people actually do worry themselves sick

books on overcoming worry have useful advice, try a bookshop or library

Re: Worrying about worrying...anyone else?

What you are feeling (worrying about worrying) is a very normal part of anxiety. If and when the Lexapro starts working, you will notice a change. You won't worry, or even think/care, about worrying. It's a great and relieving feeling! Medications can take up to 2 months to start fully working, so give it time. If you find that in about 8 to 12 weeks, you are still the feeling same, tell your doctor. There are many different kinds of medicines out there. Good luck!
