I was scheduled to go see my Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and to see a new therapist today. I just called and canceled both appointments because my anxiety is so bad right now. I am feeling guilty for missing the appointment and trying to get help, knowing that my application for disability requires me to be compliant with treatment. My current list of medications don't seem to be doing anything even though we have increased dosages on my last three visits. I guess I am just feeling stuck in this cycle. My anxiety is now to the point where it is seriously preventing me from leaving the house. I'm having difficulty making appointments and going grocery shopping - the only two activities that I do that would require me to leave. I am afraid of becoming one of those people that is shut in all the time and at the same time, I am afraid of venturing out into the world. When I can get out of bed from my depression, that is. (I'm writing this post in bed right now, in fact.) For those that have been in a similar situation, what did you do? It seems so simple to set appointments and plan to keep them only to then feel excessive feelings of guilt when I'm not able to follow through.
