Sorry it took awhile to reply. I have looked tthe resources and registered for webinar
Getting him to read them is a challenge- too many words, too hard to concentrate, even if I read aloud- he finds it overwhelming and it adds to stress. I finally convinced him to get into therapy(CBT). Only just starting and only once a week. Panic attacks are frequent, the new med seems to not be helping, so have contacted psychiatrist. Taking life day at a time.

@grandmaraines I am glad you are taking the necessary steps. I know it is not easy, but at least he is now willing to do therapy. Please keep us updated and let us know how it goes.

@grandmaraines It takes time for both medications and therapy to work. Don't give up, please! I recently started back on a low dose depression/anxiety medication, and was told it would take 3 weeks to start building up in my system, and would be 5 to 6 months before noticing significant changes. Like you, I was figuring immediate changes. But realize, please, that it takes time to change brain chemistry, and after a good trial period, there may have to be an adjustment. Everyone is different.

Thank you for coming back to let me know what is happening now. Don't give up hope. Come back and let us share with you.
