Does anyone experience a loss of confidence in themselves since they have been diagnosed? It seems that I have very little confidence and rarely make a decision. I use to be the Director of Nursing and had 150 people reporting to me and that was only two years ago, and now I don't trust my own judgement. I am on antideppresants. I have been for two years. Along with this comes anxiety that almost turns into panic attachs. I can't even say that I have a trigger. I will be having a great day in the morning and by the evening I am a wreck. Some days just out of the blue I will begin to have dillusional thoughts. They come from no where and I know they are there, but they just continue to roller coaster until I am anxious again. I don't understand this. I never had a problem like this before my last two excerbations which caused me to stop working. Does anyone have this sort of concerns and what do you do about it. Have you found anything that helps. I do have ativan that the psychatrist has given me, but I don't like to take it, I would rather that the terrible feelings would just go away.
