Hi everyone

I have felt this way all week and i still feel this way. only everyday i feel worse instead of better. this is day 10. i also have anxiety and depression. i went to the ER yesterday where they told me i had viral gastroenteritis. they said if i dont see improvment come back, and they will check for mono. what im freaking out about is i dont see improvment. each day i feel horrible and im so sick waking up feeling this way. all i do is cry and wonder why isnt my symptoms leaving, what is going on..all week my anxiety has been through the roof cause i dont feel myself getting better. i am a wreck. everyone is telling me its my anxiety causing me to feel so bad. they say if i just get out and forget it i will feel better but im so exhausted ai dont feel like it. i was on lexapro for 6 months and it didnt do anything. i just started prozac again. im just drained. and scared. I was wondering if anyone can help me out..Thank you

Hi Kelle,

It's the way nyou are thinking about things that are causing your upset and anxiety. have you heard of Cognitive behavioral Therapy (CBT)? It teaches you tools that allow you to think more clearly (and less anxiously). I was on meds for years before finding CBT and now I am off all meds and feeling the best I have ever felt in my life. I suggest you look into it further. I also hope you feel better physically soon too!
