Discussions that mention lexapro

Back Problems board

It is great to have this board to vent to people who understand. That is the key for me. I felt that no one understood what I was going through. And when I tried to explain to people who didnt understand, I was just left feeling more frustrated. Having a 5 month old and a 24 month old put additional pressure on me to provide. My sick days were running out and conservative methods to relieve my pain were not working. I was having unhealthy thoughts about going on. Yes, my family doc put me on Lexapro and that helped. I don't "fantasize" about unhealthy resolutions to my dilemma. I got motivated enough to go see a spine doctor and tell him I am ready for surgery. It is as if that getting myself well is my new job in life and I have to manage my recovery. That means "firing" people and hiring new ones to replace them.

My prayers are with you and your family. There is no need for you to apologize.
