1 Month Later…
So last month on July 29 I finally told my parents that I needed help and that I had SA (after having it for over a decade…). They didn’t make a big deal out of it which was nice and unexpected and the next day I went to get meds and then see a therapist. I have been on Celexa for 28 days and its done wonders. No side effects and my family and I have noticed a big difference. Started my third year of college a few days ago and the comparison between this year so far and the first two years is ridiculous. I haven’t felt anxious about going out and about and I am actually talking to a few people in my classes.
Long way to go still but it is insane to think how much can change in just 4 weeks.
Anyways, I am taking 20mg of Celexa, and I went to a therapist 4 times and that was very helpful (looking for a new one near college now).
If you haven’t ever sought help for your SA I strongly urge you to do so. I was apprehensive about getting help because I didn’t think it would do me any good, but obviously it has.
