I started last weekes 37.5 mg and I feel I have made a mess I'd things. I was on different meds foe six years and decided to quite. Bad move. I have 4 kids and can't seem to get going in the morning. My husband works far from home, so I only see him about 3 hours a day. Waking up and knowing my only real support isn't here is so hard. We Skype during the day. It's just not good till about 4 in the noon when I know he'll be home soon. The anxiety is the worst. How llong does thus last?
Based on the facts in your post, I would urge you to reach out, in fact, the last time I felt in a similar way, what helped me the most was stepping up and stepping out, volunteering at a hospice, a homeless shelter, children's cancer hospice. 30 minutes was all it took to open my eyes and realize so many would take all my woes and more in exchange for one day more, for one hour breathing without a machine doing it for me, to have one of their children who is afflicted not be afflicted.
Once I got my eyes, mind and thought off myself, which did not mean I was being selfish or self centered, just self focused on how bad (I thought) my life was until I saw what clinging to life was for others, I was med free, a better parent and above all, a solid sense of purpose and well being.
It may not be that there's no support for you, it may be you who bring the support, the glimmer of light for that someone in a nursing home who has no one, literally, no visitors other than the others in the same situation and the staff.
Just a step away, I can all but guarantee you the light of hope will blind you.
