New to being diagnosed and nervous about starting medications.

 

38 year old mom, wife, and some how I have been able to maintain a career for my adult life.  My therapist says I am "high functioning" but in my mind says my world in insane.....I just put on a mask and have lots of excuses.

 

Not sure what to say here other than hi and nice to meet you all!  Guess I am too paranoid to put too much down.  I don't trust myself, much less strangers......so I will work on that and try to connect!

Hello!  I'm a mom too :) I've been on several medications through the years but I am always nervous when it is time to start a new one so I get that.  Good for you for maintaining a career - that is something I am trying to work on!  Welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcomes! 

 

I have to wait a month before I can get into the psychiatrist for the introduction meeting.  Now that I know that I am going to be able to get medicatin to help me....I am super anxious about getting started.  Why do I have to wait a month?  What do they do with an emergency situation.  I'm honestly spending a lot of my mind space obsessing and waiting.  I'll talk to my Tdoc (which I believe is the slang you guys use for therapist) on my Tuesday appointment. 

 

Plus I know that I get SUPER manic right before and shortly after my period starting....and I'm just waiting to hit that wall.....so more anxiety there too.  Just trying to hold on and try to find soft quiet moments where I can rest....even if its only for 5 min.  I'll cherish it.

 

Again thanks for the warm welcome......and if you have any suggestions for me to get through this next month (of course not as medical advice, but as advice from personal experiences) I would really really appreciate it!

 

Hugs.....

Hi

 

I'm new also.  I came across crazyboards purely by accident; but glad I did!

 

I feel really alienated right now; didn't get a job I was hoping for and nearly losing the one I have.

 

Good for you for maintaining a career and having a family.  :)
