@gldnrtrvrlvr Boy I had trouble putting in your code name. I have been on Lexapro and feel good on it, but I'm also on Klonopin, and Lamictal. Ask your doctor about those two meds. The Klonopin is for anxiety and the Lamictal is used for seizures, but is also a mood elevator. I hope this helps you. I am also depressive and anxiety. I haven't had any panic attacks for some time. Mental Illness runs in our family.
Well we leave Saturday for Mayo. I have to have a Covid-10 test and blood test for it. It has to be done 48 hours before surgery, that's all for Sunday. But, Monday I have a 7:30 appointment for a chest x-ray and then an EKG. Later I see the surgeon and then later he does an exam. We also will go to a class which will help my husband know how to help me once I get home. I'm starting to get nervous, but yet excited. I'm not scared of the surgery. I think I'm more scared once we get home. My husband works full-time out of our house as Cyber Security for Wells Fargo. He is so busy now it just scares me how he is going to take care of me. He will find out at that meeting.
I hope you start feeling better, I know what it is like. My son has bipolar 1 and has a hard time, but my mom had that too and ended up ending up her life at the age of 69.
