Hi Kelly; So glad to have you with us,"WELCOME" I also have been dealing with anxiety for several years,and take medicine,which does help some,but trying to lose weight,AND quit smoking has been hard! But,after I saw my dr. and found out my triglycerides are high,he put me on a lo fat,lo sodium diet,so far,I've lost 2 lbs.,but the smoking is another matter. Have you tried counseling for your anxiety? I did that for awhile. I also used cymbalta,and it REALLY helped me,but I couldn't afford it,so I had to go to a different med- ication,and so far,I haven't found one that was as good as cymbalta,but I'm still trying. I hope you find something to help you,and if any of us on this team can help you,please let us know. We're here for you,so keep posting. Welcome aboard! mj1550
Hello fellow sparkpeople. I am new to this forum and have struggled with anxiety for about 6 years now. It comes and goes but is getting better. I am currently on cymbalta. Hope to get to know everyone better.
