Sixstringkate Posted September 26, 2011 Share Posted September 26, 2011 Hi all! Meds suck, but I can't function without them. I've got general anxiety disorder or some other non-descriptive bullshit that means I freak out all the time. I learned to deal for 25 years before going on Paxil. It worked for 2.5 years. Doc switched me to Celexa. It worked for 2.5 years and gave my son a cleft lip. Thanks a ton for that. I had plenty of pretend reasons to feel guilty all the time, I didn't need a real one. Anyway, Celexa stopped working and I got anxiety and OCD symptoms this time. Compulsively picking my skin and not being able to stop, even when I wanted to. That was fun, let me tell you. Anyway, Doc put me back on Paxil (20mgs for God's sake! That wouldn't cheer up a Cabbage Patch Kid!) and I'm in hell. 30mg didn't work either. 40 kind of works, but I keep having major doubts about my life's direction. Could be that I'm an intelligent and talented person who feels wasted as a housewife. (Even though I know it's only for a couple of years, I work from home a bit, and I can't stand the though of being away from the twins.) Or it could be that I'm still swinging from the meds. The self doubt is starting to take a toll. -Six Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
