Nov 6, 2017 · Morning Anxiety in Depression & Anxiety

@shoregal45 My prescription for my antidepressant was twice a day and I found it caused me to be more anxious and short of breath. I had to cut it back to once a day and start an antianxiety med twice a day. This seems to be a good combination. I have to take the antidepressant in the morning, otherwise I don’t sleep either.

@liz223 I do the same thing, take time for me by having my coffee and watching a little TV, then really force myself to take my dog out for a short walk even though I don’t feel like it most days. Trying to get adequate sleep also helps a lot

@anniegk I sometimes feel the same way. I think it is because I am overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done and I feel anxious that I won’t complete everything.

Nov 6, 2017 · Guilt Towards Family Due To Mental Illness in Mental Health

@tonbop My sister and mom are about the only ones I can talk to about my anxiety because the answers seem so simple to outsiders who really don’t know me well enough to understand. Dealing with any chronic illness can be trying on everyone involved. Try to lessen the guilt by setting small goals to interact with your family. Maybe write a list: read a book with the kids, listen to some soothing music with your husband. Every day you complete one of these tasks, make a point to congratulate yourself about what you did do, not what you couldn’t. Focus on the positive and take time to heal.

Nov 6, 2017 · Building trust after infidelity in Women's Health

I decided to stay with someone who cheated in the early stages of our relationship, he said he wasn’t ready to be committed, but never shared that with me for the 6 months he was involved with someone else. He knows I don’t trust him because of the things he’s done in the past, so he gave me the code to his phone to listen to his messages (to try to build trust I guess). Before I left on vacation, I told him that my gut still feels like something is wrong and he assured me nothing was. While on vacation without him, he didn’t answer, so I listened to his voicemail and found out he had been talking to an ex girlfriend of 5 years who was married ( which infuriated me) . Both say nothing was going on other than talking, but she begged me not to talk to her husband about it. I was ready to leave, but he talked me into staying again. Feel like I’m living in a soap opera! In both situations, I was hurt beyond belief and it just reinforced my feelings of not being “good enough” In the past, I always picked people I knew I could trust 100% because I knew I would have a hard time dealing with it. Now I’m on anti anxiety meds and antidepressants, which have helped but just not sure I want to start all over again with someone new…

Presuming the worst case scenario, threatening suicide is no reason to stay in an abusive relationship.

Nov 6, 2017 · Broken Hearted, What can I do? in Women's Health

So sorry to hear you are going through this. You will never be able to change him, but it is hard to stop loving someone none the less. Take care of yourself, treat yourself, maybe talk to your pastor? The more you do on your own the less you will tolerate. Find your strength, then make the best decision for you! Do you feel safe leaving the relationship?
