God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Welcome to the team AmyJoy!

I can completely relate to your ER trip! COMPLETELY! It took two trips to the ER before I was able to say ok, maybe it isn't my heart, maybe it is actually stress and anxiety!!

This is a great team and very supportive! I'm so glad you've joined us!

Welcome! I am struggling with clicking my teeth together, clinching my teeth until my jaws ache and/or licking my lips until they are sore. I believe it is stress, but so far nobody seems to be listening to me except my mental health group on FB. I developed these symptoms after electing to let my husband take over my Social Security check to pay my bills. Some days I don't do it as bad as others. I thought I was getting a handle on it until income tax time about 2 weeks ago and since working on that, the symptoms have return to full strength again. So I'm trying to figure out how to cope.

About the same time my doctor took me off my medications that I had been on prior and it seems like I've been a mess since then. And, I have no medical insurance so cannot afford my medications that I do take (Abilify being one). I get my Celexa in the generic form for $10.00 for 30-days and I continue to take that. I recently started on generic of Ambien which works very well, but costs too much for me to buy. I have to get busy and find some way to get these meds at a reduced price again.

Anxiety level today is about an 8.

Glad you joined us. Hope we can all help you make it through your anxiety.

I can't believe I haven't been here before - I have been with SP.com on and off for a few years now and the thing that always brings me back is the genuine support you get here.

I have been suffering/struggling with axiety and depression my whole life (now that I know what it is I can say that) My most intense suffering started in 2006 when I ended up in the ER demanding for someone to figure out what is wrong with me - and after the tests were done and the EKG was done someone from the mental health unit came in and said "are you under a lot of stress?"...my answer: WHAT?!
It took me a long time to learn that anxiety and stress can effect me physically. I can't beleive how many years its been - it doesn't feel like 5 years - but it has taken over my life - learning, reading, trying to understand. I have been on and off Lexapro a couple of times and am considering going back on - but there are just so many variables and conserns I have about medications!
Today I am having a particularly rough day - my thoghts are racing and I can't seem to get out of the funk. I love to hear about others experiences with this so feel free to share or ask me anything - the more we know the better right?

Thanks for having me!



Live like there's no tomorrow,

Love like you've never been hurt,

Dance like you do when nobody is watching...
