So either my anxiety is getting worse as I get older or my Depo is making me crazy. I have the WORST anxiety at night. Like its okay when my SO is here and awake with me but as soon as he goes to sleep or if he's not here, it gets horrible. I'm scared of looking out the windows at night, im scared to walk around because when I do I constantly look behind me to make sure no one is there, and I can't describe it but I just have obsessive thoughts about scary shit and I feel these knots and a sense of dread in the pit of my stomach. And every little tiny noise makes me jump. I even sometimes think I see things out of the corner of my eye. Idk what to do. My SO is out of town starting today for the next week or more, and I'm so scared being alone. And the reason I think it may be my Depo is because I've always had anxiety but it didn't start getting out of control like this until I started on Depo. And yes, I'm probably going to get off of it but it will take at least 6 months to a year to fully get out of my system. The only things that calm me down is distracting myself on my phone or watching tv but then I still feel a little anxious. I guess the anxiety could be from stress too. I have two kids under four, I work full time, and go to school online as well so I'm pretty stressed.
This f**king sucksssss. I feel trapped in my own head.
I feel the exact same way. I feel like I'm becoming schizophrenic or something. :[
Try meditation! Clear your mind and try to get to a calm state and then try to work through what is making you so afraid and anxious. I'd suggest trying to do it during the day, maybe while the LO's are napping or something.
Also try looking into Valerian Root. It helps with anxiety and is all natural. It can also help with sleep.

I was on depo and I feel like my anxiety got worse as well. I have anxiety issues to begin with and depo really made them worse.
I got off of it in March and I am still dealing with it although it's not as bad.
Yeah my friend just got back on Depo and she said hers has gotten bad. It has to be it probably combined with stress. I just want to snap out of it because this is not normal. No one should be terrified to walk around doing normal nightly routines/chores in their alarm system protected home. It took about 8 months for Depo to leave my system last time but I had been on it for almost two years. I've only been on it for almost 6 months now so maybe it won't take as long to get out this time.

Depo makes me feel f**king insane. Literally, that shit made me shitballs insane. I had PPD and I personally believe it was from the depo... once I got off of it I was MUCH better. I still hate my hormones being messed with, I resent being on the damn nuvaring.
My anxiety was so much worse on depo.. id have panoc attacks that would cause me to pass out. Not to mention i wad a raving b***h out of nowhere
