I'm a 32 yr old female (AFAB). My therapist is a licensed social worker, so she cannot officially diagnose me, but she suspects I am neurodivergent and on the spectrum. I see where she may be coming from, but I have this part of me that doesn't believe it. I dont know if I don't want to believe it or if I genuinely am not someone with ASD. For example, I make eye contact with folks when we talk, though it does feel weird and I have to mentally tell myself to look away to not make it awkward. I understand sarcasm and jokes (most of the time) and I can be empathic. I can tolerate small talk, even though it makes me anxious. And I understand the back and forth roles of conversation. I do tend to try to finish other people's sentences or interpret which I'm working on. I think she is primarily focusing on my social phobia/terrible anxiety. I get anxious from anticipating possible social interactions and I have a lot of physical symptoms that come with that. I prefer spending most of my time alone playing games, doing art, or diamond painting. I do get lonely sometimes, but its hard to reach out to my two friends to tell them I need socialization time. I dont know what to think, I guess. Do you think I should try to get tested?
I need some reassurance about going inpatient at a mental health facility.. I heard they’ve changed a lot in the way they operate, and that it’s a lot better now. But idk. It’s still just so scary. I’m not diagnosed with a lot of the issues I know I deal with, and I’m hoping that admitting myself will help with that??? Idk how it works. Any positive experiences with going inpatient to help me with my anxious thoughts over this? I just wanna know how this works and what happens while you’re there. Thank you for reading 💕
I've been offered antidepressants and worried it might make me feel drowsy, sleepy and potentially make me gain weight. Are these fears based on reality? or am I been paranoid?
I’ve just recently been put on Xanax and citalopram for anxiety and for some reason I am scared to take the citalopram because of side effects I’ve read on the internet. Is anyone taking citalopram for anxiety and how well does it work?
Is it okay for me to take ashwagandha as well as my anxiety medication? I tried to look it up but I couldn't find a lot of stuff about it. I mostly take ashwagandha at night/evening and my anxiety medication during the day.
My new therapist says my OCD symptoms could actually be autism and anxiety, can someone tell me how these overlap? I can’t find any solid information online.
I wanted to ask if anyone has anxiety and takes Alprazolam? I am not on it but I was having some anxiety and I wanted to see if it's a helpful medication?
is prozac a good medication for severe anxiety?
Do you ever get into this weird funk where you don't feel like yourself and nothing feels right and you can't seem to figure out what's wrong? Some days I wake up and I'm fine and other days I can't even focus on doing any tasks and it's like I float around with anxiety barely feeling like a person, unmotivated but wanting desperately to feel like a normal person... idk...
I'm struggling to lose weight and have done for the last 5 years since my youngest was born. I'm now 41, overweight and classed as obese. Just had a wellness check done and my bloods have come back normal however, I still think I may have a risk of diabetes. Anyone been in the same position as me?
For my conditions, specifically anxiety and depression, would an emotional support animal be helpful? I know it would take work and effort to take care of it, but it could help on the emotional level.
I would like to know if anyone is taking prozac and how they feel about it
I've recently come to the realization that I suffer from crippling, panic attack, fully debilitating anxiety. It's ramped up over the past six months, but I've just recently been in a place in life where I can identify it as a standalone problem rather than a situational reaction. I don't currently have insurance, won't be able to get it for at least another month. Any magic quick fixes or tools for this? I can't cope with this level of anxiety and being completely out of control of it
Does taking anti-depressants (fluoxetine) at night affect sleep patterns?
How can i stop having panic attacks about the same exact things. I just want to get my life together is all.
