My anxiety was almost cured by Effexor, but I had to quit it because it made me obese.
My life has become so good, great bf & job, but it's still hard to get over residual anxiety.
I don't have severe panic attacks like I used to, but I still get these waves of unease & dread, & have trouble functioning normally.
I am going to see a psychologist Monday.
I'm taking adrenal support herbs, a multi, B12, Cal/Mag, chromium & l-theanine now, & work out regularly.
I am conerned because the anxiety makes me act weird, like paranoia, poor hygeine, odd speech, extreme tiredness (visible to onlookers).
I'm not sure what to do next.
If the psychologist proposes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or going back on Effexor, I'll have to quit, because the former does nothing & the latter made me gain 10 lbs a month.
I feel sad that my life is so good but I still feel this way.
I still think about suicide, despite having the best bf & job I've ever had.
