Mine has gotten better. I was on two meds, one anti depressant and one for anxiety. I'm off the anxiety meds now and just taking the anti depressant. I'm feeling so much like my old self again though. The meds made a huge difference.
I'm a whole new person. Started to feel like myself again.
No meds, just therapy.
Still have 5 more sessions but I'm happy to see progress. I don't stress out as much (still do but not "crazy" much).
I'm reading a book the therapist gave me and it's good. It gives you anxiety and stress relaxation techniques you can use.
It's been weeks since I cried the last time (except for yesterday 'cause I had a rough session)
*** Thank you :shortcake: for my beautiful siggie ***
I'm medicated and some days I'm good and some I'm not. I go back to the doctor next week to see if it's working or if I need to change meds. I don't know what I will tell her because it's hard to explain.
I'm glad to hear that some of you are feeling a little better. Some progress is always a good sign. I think that we all have some good and some bad days. It's how we deal with it that really makes a difference.
I've struggled with anxiety almost all my life but it's mild to moderate. Never been on meds but I have done therapy and it really has helped. Like most of you, I struggled with PPD and anxiety but only for about a month and a half after Jenna was born. My doctor told me though that once you have anxiety, it's a lingering disorder. It doesn't just suddenly dissapear. It will always be there but it is controllable. There is always hope and help. Never give up. There are ways to cope with it so make sure you continue taking your meds or get the help you need (therapy, social group, etc).
You are all on my mind and thoughts and prayers. Stay strong Remember to make some time for yourself! *hugs*
