Do the holidays cause you more than usual stress? How do you get through the holidays without having an anxiety or panic attack?

THESE CHANGES HAVE MADE IT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO POST. GEEEEE !!!!!! ANYHOW IT ALWAYS SAYS I'M NOT AUTHORIZED TO POST COMMENTS. I'LL SEE IF I CAN DO THIS ONE. LOL ONLY THE QUICK REPLY IS GIVING IT TO ME. FOR MOST OF MY LIFE I'VE SUFFERED WITH PANIC AND ANXIETY. SO I USED TO MOST OF MY LIFE GET PRETTY DEPRESS DURING THIS TIME OF THE YEAR PLUS GET PANIC. THIS YEAR SO FAR SO GOOD AND WE JUST HAD OUR 1ST SNOW STORM LAST NIGHT THROUGH TODAY. I WAS PUT ON CYMBALTA A LOW DOSE 5 MONTHS AGO FOR MY HIPS. I HAVE A SEVERE SCOLIOSIS AND MY HIPS FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS HAS MADE IT HARD TO DO SIMPLE THINGS LIKE WALKING. MY HIPS HAVE BEEN THE PROBLEM, BUT SINCE THE CYMBALTA MY HIPS FOR MOST OF THE TIME DON'T HURT. YAY!!!! PLUS FOR THE 1ST TIME A PILL HAS TAKEN AWAY DEPRESSION, AND ANXIETY. I FEEL MUCH BETTER. THIS IS BECOMING MY BEST HOLIDAY IN YEARS. I ALSO SUFFER FROM PTSD AND THIS PILL HAS BACKED MY PTSD OFF. HOW ARE U FEELING KARLA? WISHING A WARM HOLIDAY SEASON AND EVERYONE ELSE THE SAME. ♥

DOING GOOD.  JUST HOPE THIS WILL POST. EVERY TIME I TRY IT WON'T LET ME.  CHANGES ARE NOT ALWAYS GREAT SINCE THE IVILLAGE MADE SOME. I USUALLY GET PANIC OR, AND DEPRESS AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. SINCE I'VE BEEN ON CYMBALTA FOR MY HIPS PAIN FOR 5 MONTHS NOW I'M DOING BETTER. IT HAS ALSO HELPED WITH MY DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY PLUS PTSD. PRETTY GOOD DRUG I SAY. LOL  HOW ARE YOU DOING KARLA? WISHING YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE ON THIS BOARD AND HAPPY HOLIDAY.    SUZY

I'm having some difficulty posting myself.  Yesterday I was caught in a "log-in loop" and boy was I annoyed.  Well, today it looks like I will post.  And don't worry about the double post, I'm guilty of that too.  I have a tendency to double click everything.  My son makes fun of me for it.  LOL!

It sounds like you are doing good Suzy.  The new med seems to make all the difference.  I bet it feels really good to be feeling really good.  I hope this is the med that works for you for a long time. 

Enjoy those holidays!

siggy line
