Hiya I don't even know where to start I have always been outgoing loved being out and about and up for a good night out with friends ever
Since I had my little boy who is two next month I hardly go
Anywhere! I work full time as a nurse and have no
Problem at work being confident taking the lead and being
Able to deal with a lot of different situations I can talk
To patients rels doctors without hesitation and would say I am
Quite confident at standing up for myself ! However when I go home I am total different person I have a lovely hubby to be a gorgeous little boy and brilliant family. However when I'm off work I find it a struggle to do daily things I panic if the phone rings if I don't know the number I won't answer it if someone knock at the door and I'm not expecting it I will
Not answer I use to be out a lot for meals nights out with friends however now I think I have been out maybe twice this year so far and that was because I had ran out of excuses not to go and was made to go
By other half . It's not just meeting friends if i need shopping I will
Only go to my local supermarket that is maybe five min walk away I don't go any further it's like a horrible feeling I get in the pit
Of my stomach if I do go further it's always with my hubby and I am horrible when I go I am snappy anxious and can't wait to get back in the house ! About a year ago I seen my dr and was started on citalopram 20mg for generalised anxiety disorder however to be honest I don't feel like they have ever worked that well they kinda just numbed my feeling making me all muddled I
Know I'm going on but about three weeks ago
I stopped taking them when my prescription ran out I know I should know better but I though what's the point this weekend I feel rock bottom was suppose to go to drs on Friday but canceled because I felt sick at the thought of going I had to end up missing work this weekend due to uncontrollable crying I'm waiting to go see my gp this afternoon hopefully she can help I feel so stupid how my anxiety can switch itself on feel like I'm going crazy sorry for going on just needed to vent how I'm feeling sorry again xx

First off Welcome. Secondly, I hope you find the answers you need while you are here. It can be crippling to be going through what you are going through at home.
