Hi NataliaD, I'm not sure whether I'm better or worse than I was 6 months ago. Some things have gotten better and others have gotten worse. The thing that is worst is the anxiety. I also get frequent chest pains and numbness in arms and fingers.i didn't realise these were symptoms of anxiety when they started in July of last year. But now I'm being told I have anxiety then I must try to accept these symptoms are just the anxiety. But it is hard to tell myself that these pains are caused by my thoughts. Originally I was ok for the first 2 months off bcp, then I suffered the first chest pains with lots of heart palpitations and stabbing flutters in my entire chest area and I didn't know what was happening because I never experienced anything like that before. I thought it was my heart. Roll on to today and I'm still getting the chest pains. Sometimes I don't feel them when I'm busy doing something else but when I think about it I get the pains straight away!!! I never really suffered anxiety before-not like this anyway. I would get normal stresses about life and money etc but I was always ok. I did separate from my child's father few years ago and that was difficult but I never felt like this. I was always kind of sad little while and then I say to myself ok time to concentrate on the future and I'd keep going. Regarding depression-I dont think I'm suffering with this. I get a bit down because I want to feel like myself again but I don't feel depressed. I just want answers as to when I'll feel ok again. I've been off medication a week now and it has been hard. But when I've made it through the day I feel great. I have to keep telling myself this will be ok. I will be ok. Even if I'm not certain of it, I must believe it that I will be. I don't know if that makes sense. I hope you are doing ok. You must have been very disappointed with your husband for not being more supportive while you have been going through this. I find men can be quite selfish at times. i find I don't have patience for men now while I am going through this.
