Hi everyone! I'm new to spark. My anxiety started after my dad passed away. It will be 9 years on June 6th. My mind is constantly going and I have certain fears that control my life that had never before. I'm in constant fear to the point where I don't leave my house and only check our mail at night. I used to be on wellbutrin until I lost my job 5 years ago and don't have health insurance, so having to stop cold turkey made my symptoms worse. I look forward to getting to know everyone!
to the team! So nice to have you. I'm glad the medicine is helping you. You're right medicine doesn't make the fears miraculously gone but they do help. Hope you find the support you are looking for here. We have a great group of compassionate people!

Welcome to the group. I have suffered from anxiety since the birth of my 3rd child. Was on zoloft 50mg for 2 1/2 years and weaned off last dec. I still get anxiety around my cycle and am fooling around will taking some zoloft 2weeks out from my period . This group has lots of great supportive people that have a lot of good ideas. Good luck on your weight loss healthy lifestyle jouney
I too have suffered from anxiety problems that increased after my nervous breakdown. I take a lot of medications, to many to mention. Some are for my major depression and some are for my anxiety problem. Hope that all goes well with you.
Hi everyone! I'm new to spark, but anxiety has been a part of my life, well, forever. I'm never completely relaxed. My mind is always worried about something, and I have certain fears that control my life. I never feel completely at ease, and I don't sleep well. I had never been on any medications until a few months ago when my family doctor put me on lexapro. I think it's helped me. My fears aren't miraculously gone, but it takes the edge off. I look forward to getting to know everyone!
