@tiredmommy, that must be a relief to have made a decision to address anxiety and to work with your doctor on a medication and dosage that works for you. I think fellow long haulers like @ldropps @kirstenk2003 @mamafluh may also have some experience in addressing the mental side effects of COVID big and small.

Here's an article from the American Psychological Association that might interest you.

Did you decide on a medication?

I've tried what @sueinmn talks about. Plus I have dogs who help a lot. I'm personally on medication for anxiety and depression which I had prior to Covid. I also see a therapist regularly. I feel like I have some PTSD both from Covid itself, but also from seeing all the doctors. I naturally tend to feel like everything is my fault and when there isn't a clear "this is how to fix this" I worry that I'm making it worse than it is. I also have chronic migraines and congenital heart disease so I see a lot of doctors.

Please know that you aren't alone. I'm here if you ever need to talk to someone. Also, I can say from experience that the folks who staff the mental health hotlines are very good.
