This time the appointment is for me. I have been having bad anxiety for several years now. The anxiety has gotten much worse in the last year and a half, since I got in my accident on 1/20/11. Since I can no longer take any type of benzo for it, I'm stuck trying new antidepressants. This new one I'm on has been one of the worst. My anxiety has gotten much worse since I started it. I can't wait to start coming down off of it. Sunday I had the worst anxiety attack ever, and it lasted almost the whole day. I caved in and took a Xanax. I didn't want to, because knew that I would be stuck in the house the rest of the day and night due to not being able to drive. I wanted to be able to take difficult children somewhere to eat, but instead we got stuck ordering from the local pizza place. Neither one of them are big pizza eaters, but I had no choice. The Xanax helped a little but not much. Now I'm off to the doctor's to see about trying another antidepressant. I've probably gone through at least ten so far. So now it's on to the next one. I am SO totally not looking forward to going, because I absolutely hate having to do errands or go to appointments after work. It's just too stressful on me, but I gotta do what I gotta do...sigh.
