2 days ago · Not sure if it’s anxiety or something else in Depression & Anxiety

My anxiety is worsened just by thinking of anxiety! I’ve been practicing mindfulness and meditation along with Taking Prozac. This combination does not cure anxiety, but it certainly helps my quality of life.

I’m currently only on 10 mg of Prozac daily. Hope to be bumped up this week in the hope of feeling better. And I just switched over from Lexapro so probably have months to tough it out before the new med kicks in 🙁

Dec 30, 2019 · Best antidepressants for anxiety? And about to begin a benzo taper in Depression & Anxiety

Sears, I’m older too and anxiety started 3 years ago for me. It’s as if something disconnected in the brain-gut axis. I was just switched from Lexapro to Prozac to see if it works better for me. It’s hard to be patient for months until the drug takes full effect, but I’ll do anything to reclaim my good days. Anxiety is as much a disease as any other. I’m also using herbal supplements — ashwagandha, chamomile teas — as well. Am trying hypnosis and acupuncture next.
Geeeez!

Sadly, having family does not always guarantee holiday involvement and joy. Members can be estranged. Siblings can harbor jealousies and resentments of one another that spill into and detract from holiday spirit. Many may agree that one happy couple — rather than a menagerie of folks with issues — may be all that’s needed under your Christmas tree. Blessings of the season to everyone!

Chris, thank you for sharing your experience with meditation. It’s taking me a while to easily drop into the meditation zone. I hope I get to that point. My anxiety has been with me for so long — I’m really good at that!! I realize I need to exercise some patience here, but am confident that I’m doing something good for myself by meditating.
