Well I thought I was doing a lot better and getting over my anxiety. Turns out I was wrong. The medication my doctor had put me on back in December actually started to make me feel more anxious and nervous. It got to the point where I would be in class and out of no where I would start feeling overwhelmingly hot and lightheaded. I would have to rush to the bathroom and vomit. After that happened a few times, I decided to ween myself off that medication. After about 2-3weeks I was completely off of it. That's when more trouble happened. The process of trying to get that medication out of my body made me a complete mess. I had a doctor's appointment and for some reason I felt extremely terrified. I was in the car with my mom and I had tears in my eyes and was shaking. By the time we arrived I burst into tears and couldn't stop crying. I was so scared. I never felt like that before. My doctor gave me some sleeping pills to help me sleep and wanted me to get some blood work done. I got my blood work done and then had another appointment on Tuesday. Before I even left my house I got terrified again and couldn't stop crying. I eventually made it to the appointment. I had stopped crying but still felt uneasy. My doctor put me on the same anxiety medication my mom takes. I also bought a stess management kit that came with a relaxation/meditation cd. I felt 100 times better after my appointment.Ibelieve I am on the road to recovery. Yesterday I had a setbackthough. I was home alone with mybrother and there was a power outage. I'm not sure whybut it mademe feel really uneasy anda bitscared. I talked to my mom on the phone for a little bit,bu then I remembered I had that cd I just got. My brother found his old cd walkman andI put the cd in and did the exercises and meditated. After 5 minutes, Ifelt better and myself again.2hours later the power cameback on and my dad came home. I decided to put that cd onto mymp3 player so I willalways have it. I think Ineed to continue to believe in myself and get my confidence up thenI shouldbe back to mynormal self again.

    That is why I stay away from meds that Damn lexapro almost gave me a stroke took it got a panic attack my brain started to burn because my vessels were constricting. Lexapro is a vaso constrictor. Guess what happens when we have anxiety our blood pressure rises from fight or flight? Bad combo. Drugs don\'t help.
