Started on citalopram 5 weeks ago and feel like I'm at rock bottom again

I had weaned off citalopram in March. I felt my mood start to deterioate from the end of April onwards. I went back to the docs she recommended therapy rather than restarting the meds. I then crashed mid June and have been back on citalopram ever since. It'll be 5 weeks on Friday. I had started to improve but today I feel as bad as did in the beginning. I've been off work since the crash but I had been in again for 3 days. Something happened yesterday which has triggered all the anxiety again and actually given me a whole load of new things to worry about. I can't see myself ever getting better.

My anxiety levels are high again this morning. I'm really scared that I can't seem to find a way out of this.

Hiya. There is a way... You will start to feel better. What is it you are worrying about? I don't even know how I'm telling you this I'm currently 7 weeks and feeling very low. Long story but I've had chronic lower back/ pelvic pain for the past 9 months, I have had a cough for the past 3 months and j small lump on back of my head that throbs and have convinced myself I have cancer. Despite pelvic X-ray/ chest X-ray and reassurances from DH and Doctors. It's despicable we allow anxiety to do to our minds. I'm so happy about my pregnancy but every day I feel so low about these problems. Please know you're not alone. I hope this helps.

Thank you for replying. I'm sorry to hear you're struggling too.
My anxiety is all about a work situation. I started a small business with a friend a year ago but I don't know if I can continue because of the stress and anxiety it causes me. But it's complicated at its not easy just to walk away.
