Bad anxiety
Jan 18, 2011
I've had anxiety before, it was several years back though. It got better and I was doing great until just recently. This bout started around the holidays and it's progressively gotten worse. It hasn't been just one particular thing that's set it off but alot has happened in the past few months.
I remarried a few months ago and we moved to a new house and a different part of the city. My job is incredibly stressful and dealing with a supervisor who is awful just doesn't help. I never know shift to shift what will happen. I take that back, I never know minute to minute what will happen. I enjoy my work and before I had the problems I have with my supervisor everything was fine at work. I went from night shift to dayshift right before I got married. Now I get up at 4am to be at work by 6am. I work until 6pm.
The past few weeks the symptoms of anxiety have been severe, almost debilitating at times. I wake up feeling anxious and it stays that way all day long! No relief. My mind races. My chest tightens up and the headaches are oh my, just terrible. It feels like every muscle in my face and head are being pulled tight like they are going to pop and that only feeds this cycle. The left side of my face will feel numb. I feel dizzy, nauseated, you name it. It's just mentally draining. I want to relax but my body won't allow it. It is as if I'm in just never ending anxiety 24/7 with no relief from this.
I had lab work recently, before the holidays and everything was normal including thyroid functions. My dr called in Lexapro 10 mg's and Tranxene 7.5 mg's but until I get paid I can't pick them up. Our benefits are terrible.
Sorry this is so long. I just needed to vent and I'm hoping someone out there can relate to this!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Thanks for listening.
