Well it has been 6 months since I started taking Paxil. Everyone in my life has noticed the difference in me. I now say exactly what I want to and don't care what anyone thinks. BUT because I am bi polar- this is not always a good thing. I am very impulsive and combine that with not caring what people think and it is trouble. I really believe that SA was preventing some of my bi polar antics to come out. I am working on being less impulsive. So, I think Paxil has been a good thing for me. However, I have got myself in trouble at work because of it. I feel more confident and have the nerve to say what I really want to say so I think Paxil is a good thing for me. The only anxiety I have now is my current work situation. It is an open office and I don't like to talk about anything personal because I don't want all of my co workers to hear my business. I still get physical symptoms of anxiety like my chest hurting. But as far as talking - I am cured. Just wanted to share an update.
