Quoting JiLLiAN.:" life is too hard. :( i wish we could still be like our innocent children who never feel these things."


My problems started as an infant. I didn't smile until I was about 6 months old. They would probably have diagnosed me as autistic if I was born today. I was just afraid of everything. I was not a happy child at all. I pray to god my children do not inherit these issues.

Thank you. I'm very proud of myself, thinking back to who I was. Couldn't even sit on my front porch.



Do you think you not going anywhere is because of lack of desire stemming from depression? Or is it fear stemming from anxiety?

You're welcome! That is great you've come so far



I get panic attacks just thinking about going anywhere. I can't drive either I always think I'm going to get into a wreck.

I understand. Unfortunately I'm only in counseling right now. I've thought so many times about going back to the hospital. But then I would miss more of her life. Which I've alread missed half of her life being in the hospital.

Anxiety. I know how you feel. It is literally a handicap. Are you on meds for it? I take Ativan.

I have a license but don't use it unless I'm going to my therapy appointments because I have to do it.

Yeah it sucks. I'm on Lexapro, Buspar and Ativan. On a scheduled basis. I also take Vistaril PRN. I don't know how it could have gotten so bad when I've only been dealing with it since my pregnancy.

I was on Cymbalta and Buspar.




Celexa and Effexor both made me feel worse.

I'm sorry they made you feel worse. I'm on a slew of medications for other conditions that aren't for anxiety

It's just a chemical imbalance in your brain. Anxiety is caused by too much dopamine. Eight years ago, when I started taking Zoloft, my doctor at the time told me SSRI's help regulate those levels. I definitely can see that that much has happened. As far as the depression goes though, not sure if it's helped much.
