  1. Thanks again. Yeah, never take med tracker literally when you have anxiety.
  2. The potential major risk is serotonin syndrome and possibly death. Honestly the first issue that is a concern is tremors. I have essential tremors. So if I begin shaking so bad I can't see straight we'll know it's not a good drug for me.
  3. I am honestly not feeling well. I have been physically hurting and wanted to take tylenol and looked up interactions. Then I discovered Buspar and Zoloft have a major interaction. I am on 100mg Zoloft and was just prescribed Buspar- 7.5mg. I have been on Buspar just over a week. Both my family doctor, emergency psych and the pharmacist are aware of this. I even asked the pharmacist to review my meds with me. Is there any benefit to such a risk?
  4. I feel like I lack feeling... and then I don't... and then feeling comes in the form of anxiety. Sometimes feelings are light though and I have some good people in my life. I have made some good choices in the people I have in my life. And sometimes I chose bad people. And other times I simply have no choice. I think I have bonafide depression. I don't sink into bed and hide for days. I function but feeling normal in crowds and in general doesn't always happen for me. My doc dx'd me with social phobia, anxiety and PTSD. I was initially dx'd with bipolar 2 mixed episodes. With the bipolar 2 dx the doctor essentially filled in the blanks to fit a narrative that didn't even happen. People suck and then they do something wonderful. And then they suck again. I have left a total of three jobs this year. Plus I temped. It sucks. I left the other job for reasons that just were beyond my control, and simply because some employers seem to try to ram their bullshit down my throat, or just make getting employed with them a waste of time with ridiculous hopes to jump through. I honestly find the employment market literally hostile and designed to make you lose it.
  5. I had a friend who was super positive about everything and wanted to shove her positivity along with her warped belief system down my throat. She is a part of a christian cult that promotes that a person have a very positive and friendly approach to others, which in theory is nice, but they try to bait and switch that with shaming you. People who seem unsinkable and to thrive happily off others as they suffer are often the ones that are the true vampires.
  6. As a person with an anxiety disorder I can attest to not being sure whether I'm psychotic or really anxious. The situation is irrational but it's really due to anxiety because I'm frightened of public sitiations and the fear of panic itself. I can't pinpoint the exact chain of thoughts but it's distressing. Not psychotic but distressing. Delusions (maggots eating you to death) that aren't based in reality that trigger anxiety can be psychotic. You realize it's not real but still distressing all the same. You're still realizing it's not right which is a good thing and it gives you the ability to decide to treat.
  7. I tried Gabapentin 300mg once for about a week and at first it made me anxious and kind of depressed. I would of enjoyed the chillaxed effect but never experienced it.
  8. I had someone storm off in anger because they thought I was shaking my head in disapproval. I was dumbfounded because I am not fully aware of my shaking at times.
  9. I have been taking Ativan almost daily recently. I will be seeing my pdoc in another 2 weeks. Is it bad to take it daily? I don't have melt down panic attacks but I do get skaky and nervous. I feel like it just takes the edge of my anxiety and lets me relax while I'm working. Is this appropriate use or is there something else better. I suffer from essential tremors as well. Also getting rechecked on that issue this Thursday.
  10. I responded poorly to it. I seemed to get more ocular migraines on it. Topomax was great except for the non stop uti's.
  11. Nope. Going to ask my doctor. Requested an appointment.
  12. Clonazepam does wonders for anxiety but nil for my tremor. I have low bp and hr and propranolol was tried but my migraine aura acted up (because it caused to much flux in bp for me). Just I am taking on a job that is hospital work and dealing with people. I swear someone mistook my tremor as me shaking my head in disapprovement and got angry with me.
  13. I have essential tremor of my head/neck that causes my head to shake in a no-no pattern. The sad part is I think it is affecting my work where I confused a client into thinking I was shaking my head in disdain at them. Any useful treatment options out there?
  14. What did your therapist say? It sounds like a symptom you shouldn't just wait on to go away.
  15. I have been watching the media a little since the grenfell building fire in London. I found a live stream with a live chat. It seemed that it was possibly not a real live stream. What seemed disturbing was the moderators of the chat were essentially trolling people with anti-muslim rhetoric and then banning anyone who was muslim or in disagreement with their views. Like if you told them to have some empathy and quit using this tragedy to spout their bullshit you were banned. WTF is wrong with people? In a situation like Grenfell we all bleed the same.
