Quoting HizOtherHalf:" Medication is the ONLY thing that saved my life. My depression and anxiety had gotten soooo bad that I actually turned into an agoraphobic (i couldnt even leave my house)."
Quoting Nikki-Kaiden's Mom:" See thats the point that I will get to shortly I feel like I don't want to even leave the house!! What ... [snip!] ... because of all the side effects and all that it just doesn't seem safe to me but I don't know what to do at this point!!"

If you need to talk or anything please PM me. And this goes for anybody in this post "My sister has similar anxiety problems, it runs in our family. Half of my family think its just made up in our heads. It's hard to explain to them that it's genetic. I took remeron and buspar pp. Now just buspar. I'm so sorry what you had to go through! *hug*

It isn't like I don't want to work. I can't right now"It seems like a lot of people don't understand anxiety. I had "friends" who would purposely try to give me panic attacks because they thought it was funny. Needless to say not friends any more. Remeron was a heavens sent, it was hard to eat because of my anxiety so remeron actually made me hungry as a side affect. I also get panicky at work I have to hide in our big walk in cooler to avoid people.

I sometimes got so bad I would have a panic attack while in a patient's room. Very hard stuff to deal with."Ya me too.... especially if the door is closed. They put me in the same patients room for every appointment I have at my doctor's office, it sets off my anxiety. My husband also has anxiety, so he understands what its like.
