Just over it already...

Posted 07-09-2015 at 10:31 AM by Rdbomb94

I was admitted to the hospital back in May for pneumonia for a week. Got out with anti biotics, steroids, and oxygen. My lung dr put me back on a 6 week prednisone taper starting at 30mg. I'm at 10mg and I'm getting shortness of breath again. to the point where I need my oxygen which I haven't had to use lately. I have major anxiety so that doesn't help at all. I also suffer from Interstitial Ling Disease and wonder if that's playing a factor. I'm just in a funk... my health probs just keep adding...

Anxiety Update...

Posted 05-21-2015 at 09:20 AM by Rdbomb94

Yet again I have a new psych doctor. He has diagnosed me with General Anxiety that cause depression which causes more anxiety and adhd. So I'm trying a whole new cocktail with him. He wanted to start from scratch. I am taking 40mg of Prozac. I was on 60mg of Cymbalta but it was making me gain weight. Apparently that's a side effect for some people they don't like to tell you about. 5mg of Buspar 2x a day (anymore and it cause stomach issues and upset) and 15mg of Dexedrine 2x a day. 1 mg Klonopin...

The path to normalcy...

Posted 05-21-2015 at 09:01 AM by Rdbomb94

Hi-
I've been out of the hospital for a week now. I was in there a week for pneumonia. I've been released with oxygen. I'm concerned because my breathing is still so bad after walking around. The hospital stay itself wasn't bad. trying to get my pain meds was a nightmare. I also went back to work dragging my oxygen tank behind me. It's good to be home tho.

lumbar spinal fusion post op

I am now 6 weeks post op. I had an anterior incision for a two level lumbar disc fusion with corpectomy. Overall I feel fine. My incision is completely healed and I'm applying bio oil. My abdomen still feels a little bruised but only when I lay a certain way. My back is healing nicely, still tough to sit from laying, and standing from lower positions is difficult but also expected due to time frame. My next appointment is day after tomorrow, then I will see about physical therapy and progress, also...

Celebarting over 100 days Anxiety free

Posted 05-11-2015 at 04:39 PM by Meehan0381

Today is a big milestone for me. I am celebrating over 100 days of not having an anxiety attack or having a bad spell with my OCD.

I feel like I should be waiting for the other shoe to drop ha ha, but I'm not going to question it I'm just going to enjoy life.

I have been suffering with anxiety and OCD for about 16 years of my life now. It was really bad right around the time I started having kids at 20. I had to be hospitalized. Anxiety is so debilitating and I really...
