Hello my name is Maria I've been on a long Journey with anxiety. My anxiety started when I was 16 in high school it was pretty bad then. I started to take Celexa and experienced really bad side effects from it. After 2 weeks I started to feel a little bit better this side effects started to subside and a little after that I was completely fine. So me being young and not really knowing what excited he was and what pills were I stopped taking Celexa. I was fine until I was 21. Then I would have mild attacks every week I tried to go get help from a therapist and a psychiatrist. The therapy worked but the psychiatrist was talking to me like I was crazy so I decided not to go back. My anxiety once again subsided. I wasn't having any kind of attacks until I turn 25. And they're bad now I can't leave my house and they're bad now I can go do things on my own like going to the doctor's office or going to therapy but I can't go into certain stores or really far away from my home I literally went to go pick up something from my aunt's house that was 18 miles away from my house and I was freaking out because I felt like I was too far from home I know this may seem not too bad but it is for me. Summer is right around the corner and I literally can't do anything I won't be able to. I feel like this exoti is taking over my body it's taking over my life. I need help I just recently got prescribed 10 milligrams of Prozac and I'm scared to death of taking it I know that 10 milligrams is not that high of a dose it's not high at all. But what I'm most afraid of is the side effects of it the fact that anti anxiety medication can give you more anxiety is what really scares me. I just want to be able to live my life and do the things that I want to do without having anxiety without worrying about going somewhere and having an anxiety attack. Please anybody I need help I need reassurance I need this medication to work so I can live my life the way I want to live it.
