Hi LuvMyDog 66 (I love my dog too :) ),

I can really identify with you. I too, went through a bad marriage and my ex husband sounds a lot like yours. After I divorced, my anxiety and depression increased. I didn't know how to handle dealing with my ex husband when I saw him weekly (when he got the kids). I divorced almost 7 years ago and I've been happily married for 3 years.

I think I've always had an anxiety disorder, but I'm just now admitting it. I have a childhood background of abuse that I only remember little bits of. As I'm getting older (I'm 35), I'm having health/emotional problems more frequently. My husband has been sick and other things have been going on in my life. I'm learning that I haven't handled relationship problems very well in the past. Whenever something bad would happen, I would just ignore it and push it down or make excuses for other people. I think that part of my anxiety is contributed to the fact that I'm actually facing past fears as well as new problems and fears head-on. It is hard! I don't want to go off into detail on all of my anxieties here.

I mainly want to tell you that it is easiest to just think about today. Take one day at a time. That's what I'm trying to do.

As for the Lexapro--I've been on it for a few weeks. I'm taking 20mg....I started on 10 mg. I thought it was helping me, but today I just broke down and started crying my eyes out for half an hour. Two hours later I was making my family laugh. I also have TMJ--was diagnosed with it years ago, and deal with daily popping and pain from one side of my jaw. The Lexapro hasn't helped that relax yet. It also hasn't helped with leg pain at night, nor have Rozerem or Ambien CR helped me sleep.

That's where I'm at. I sure do wish you and everyone here the best. :)
