Anxiety board


I think I know the feeling you are talking about. I used to feel jittery, and sometimes it seemed like my insides were shaking or crawling (bad huh?). A lot of times I felt very anxious about everything, just "waiting" for something to happen - or not happen. It was a bad feeling, and I can tell you that it is 99% gone away. I only feel slightly anxious at times, and under really heavy stress. I used to nearly make myself sick over mistakes at work and I'd nearly throw up. Now, I can take it and go on. I am really hoping the Lex will do that for you too. Apparently the Paxil is not working for you, so it's smart of you to switch. I couldn't take Ativan - it knocks me out. If I ever take Xanax, it's the lowest strenth. I have some samples of the 12.5 CR here that my husband didn't take. Paxil knocked him out all the time, so they switched him to Prozac. I wish you good luck on the Lexapro, and don't be scared to switch over, it's going to be fine!

I am so glad you wrote, Adam. I had been looking for you yesterday and anxiously waiting to see how you were doing! I know this is going to be a tough day today, and then tomorrow even thougher. I HATE that you are having to do without meds, because this just isn't the time for it :nono: Do you think you will hear any results after the test? I hope so!!

Hang in there, we're all pulling for you!
Yeah, my appointment is at 930AM, only 17 hours 10 minutes to go. I just hope i can sleep better tonight. Nothing worse than waking up at 5am anxious and turning back and forth all night. Im putting the xanax and zoloft in my pocket. The moment the test is done, im downing it. They said it takes about an hour....ughh

Ive been drinking chamomile tea all day haha. I dont know what else to do. I cant stand it.
