Hi everyone,hope everyone's feeling better then me lately,cause I feel like I'm losing it most days,been married 20+ yrs anxiety and depression run in my family,but I was always the "rational one"until recently idk what set it,off.i used to have a job but lately can barely force myself out of bed.moneys tight cause Im Not working, I don't think my husband gets the severity of my sudden anxiety.i miss or cancel drs appts simply bc I can't talk Myself into going.i feel like I have tons of physical issues as well.chronic migraines,IBS,to name a few. I feel like a waste of space and like I let my daughter down by not being the mom she deserves.summer was awful ,we did nothing .ive tried diff ssris in the past but I seem to be very subjective to side effects and freak myself out with each one I try.

anyway thanks for reading.frustrated

Hi mama, I'm sorry you feel this way. I kinda understand however, I'm 41, and I've been on all sots of meds, with minimal help. I have 2 kids,ages 14 and 9,. and I too, feel guilty because we barely did anything all summer. I know thee are different meds out there, maybe try another one? Hugs :)

*hugs*

welcome to the group!

I feel awful that I didn't do anything with my daughter too! She's 13, and I gave the excuse that I had to work (which I did) but at the same time I don't think I even know how to have fun anymore.

 i know exactly what you mean about missing drs appts because you dont want to go out. i missed my last two. but yesterday i forced myself to get out and go to the ball game and i felt better.the game wasnt all that exciting for me but the atmosphere was good and it calmed my nerves and i didnt have to sit at home and cry. it had been weeks since i went out of the house. i have chronic health problems also and i have to work around those. try to force yourself to get out and do something small.

Welcome to the group.  My summer was trying, to say the least.  I hope you find some comfort in being a part of the group.

I know how you feel.  I was good for 5 years and had to go back on anti depressants I didn't get out of bed anymore just to go to work that is it.  Hang in there go see your dr he can help you.
