I have been diagnosed with depression, panic & anxiety disorder and adult add. I have always been labeled as the "shy one" amongst my siblings. But it wasn't until I was 14 that I started having real problems. I was having anxiety and panic attacks so bad that I quit school and never went farther than our mailbox. When my parents would have dinner guests, I would not come to the table because I was scared that I would either choke on my food, someone would hear my stomach rumble, or a burp or passing gas. I would stay up in my room until everyone was gone. My parents didn't quite know what to make of it. They tried to take me to therapy but I refused because of the social anxiety. After about a year or so I finally got myself out of the house and even got my first job, though I ended up quitting 4 days later because of anxiety and panic. I ended up taking care of 2 kids in my parents home for money. Slowly I got better and better until I fell into a deep depression when my then boyfriend, who was a Marine, was going to be deployed for several months. I was then put on Paxil and things started to look up. When he got back I stopped taking the meds and was fine, at least until the next time he was deployed. I was put back on Paxil. After the birth of my first child, I started having anxiety and panic attacks again. It was to the point where if my daughter got off her schedule in any way I would have a panic attack. The doctors increased my dose. That worked for a while and then seemed to have no effect. I tried Celexa and Prozac but all had the same outcome. All this time the only thing I was diagnosed with was depression. It wasn't until I was in my mid-twenties that I was diagnosed with panic and anxiety disorder. Since being diagnosed with adult add 2 months ago I am taking a combination of meds. Zoloft (150mg), Wellbutrin(100mg) and Adderall(20mg). Since starting this combination, I have lots more energy to do things with my kids and am able to keep a somewhat clean house. Though I still have the occasional breakthrough panic and/or anxiety episode. If anyone has any advice on how to deal with any of the things I have touched on please let me know.
