im fed up of feeling anxious and nervous, every morning my bowel feels like its full of butterflys, my hands sweat and i feel crap, i just cant be bothered doing anything, at the moment am dreading making tea ffs, i feel like rather than chucking a pizsa in the oven im gonna be climbing mount everest hmm its an effort to talk to my dh, my dc's sad i feel such a bad mum and wife, all i want to do is go to bed and sleep coz sleep is a relief from feeling like this. Its funny coz at the weekend when dh was home i felt fine, there where no bowel butterflys and i felt happy

Lou I saw your other thread and hoped that increasing your dose would help you.

I was on citolpram but found they didn't really help me feel better. Why don't you go back to the docs and ask for something else. I was transferred to sertraline and these suited me much better. IME docs are sympathetic especially if you are already taking tablets and will change them if you feel they are not working.

Try to talk to yourDH tho, it does help. If you really can't talk to him could you write him a letter explaining how you feel? Even if you dont send it, getting your thoughts out of your head can work wonders.

thanks mel, i have a docs appointment in 2 weeks to see how im getting on, will ask then, or make an earlier appointment if i really cant cope. Im lucky in thew ay that my dh is lovely and understanding, but tbh i think that makes me worse IYSWIM
