Thanks to those of you who gave support with the lamictal and EEG findings. I'm grateful for answers but still waiting for the effects to kick in.
I find myself struggling with intense anxiety. It was already there but it got worse a few days ago.
I had the same substitute assignment for 2 weeks and liked the routine of it. They hired someone permanent for the position and I'm partly glad but also partly sad. I liked the regularity.
Even though I signed up for classes to sub for at the same school, I woke up on Monday early in the morning and couldn't leave my bed bc of the anxiety. I didn't go in yesterday but I am doing a half day today. Thankfully it's easy classes but the anxiety still feels crippling.
Gabapentin does nothing to help it unless I take 200 mg. Then I feel drugged. I'm going to see my pcp tomorrow to get a temporary script for klonapin and then scheduling with the psychiatrist ASAP.
My eating is out of control I've gained 22 pounds this year and binge out of anxiety and comfort. It's out of control and I can't get it in check no matter how hard I try.

I actually feel myself shaking from the anxiety. Like I said, it was already there but the sudden change in work made it more pronounced.

Im trying to remind myself that this is temporary, that I just need to give the medication time and the klonapin will help.
But that doesn't stop me from worrying about more weight gain or anxiety so intense I can't get out of bed.
Hello,My name is Christine and I'm 28 years old. When I was a teenager I was first tested and told that I was diagnosed with ADHD. But I had side effects of 2 different medications for it, so I was taken off of it and have been off of them for the last 10 years and instead have been taking antidepressants. And I've always had pretty bad obsessiveness/obsessions that has controlled me so I thought...
I made some healthy turkey chili the other day and that got me thinking about all the types of chili out there. I think we have talked about this before briefly in this group, but I'd like to delve into it more. I find it very interesting that different regions of the US have very different versions of this dish.I've seen some people serve it in skillets, really thick, salty, and meaty. Some...
