 try to find a job that is not going to stress you out. you need your meds. if you get the job them you will be able to get the meds and control all the feelings you are having. leave all those people alone who are causing you stress. you dont need that in your life. good luck to you.

Welcome to the group. I am sorry you are going through so much. I would see if you are eligiable for disabilty since it is so bad. You might be able to get help with your meds thru the drug company and I would ask the therapist if you could see her less then every week.

Hello and welcome to the group!

If you have a local free clinic near you that may help, and if possible try for SSI, that is a supplemental income from the government.

Welcome to the group!  There are workbooks you can get for anxiety from barnes and noble or amazon.com, it has readings and homework to do.  its almost like going to a therapist.  If you can get in once in a while to a psych doc, if you think you need meds ask if any on the walmart $4 list can help you.

Also SSDI does not go by household income, its different than SSI and I have it because I am diagnosed with bipolar I and PTSD and my DH works.

 Welcome to the group, glad to have you here. You have found a really good group of loving, understanding and supportive women. Someone is always on line. Welcome. It sound like you are under alot of stress I am sorry for that. I hope things will look up for you soon. Just getting out a little each day can help, the park, walk, window shopping. Keep serching for a clinc that will help you, meds are good for controling anixiety I don't know what I would do with out mine. Goodluck. Hugs and prayers.
