    Hi folks,
    I'm popping in here for myself and for my kid. The kid has OCD (and a bunch of other stuff) that leads to anxiety, and it's flaring pretty badly right now as graduation (I hope!) approaches. He is substance-free and has been off all meds, by choice, for eight years or so. {Someone mentioned Lexapro up-thread; that was a nightmare for us, but the kid has multiple neuro issues, so a med for problem A will make problem B worse, etc.} But, he's struggling a lot right now, to the point where he has said he might need meds.

    I have more than my share of anxiety -- some I come by honestly, the rest I got from my kid -- and depression that has been pretty severe over the past few years. I've worked hard -- literally, if you check out the "shape up" thread, I work out 18+ hours a week for my mental health more than for my physical health -- and, with my kids semi-launched, I've been able to bring the depression under control and make slow but steady progress in tackling the anxiety. But when my kid goes off a cliff, he often takes me with him.

    If anyone feels comfortable sharing, I would like to know your thoughts about marijuana as a treatment for anxiety and OCD. I've read research that suggests that CBD might be the miracle chemical that addresses both my kid's anxiety and his seizures. On the other hand, we've tried enough medications over the years to know that there is no miracle cure-all, and most meds don't help everyone with a particular disorder.   

    And, courage to everyone posting here. There are more of us there than it seems.

    Wondering how everyone survived the holidays?

    I was doing so great that last week...cheerful and happy and so relaxed despite all the last minute stuff. Had a great Christmas Eve dinner with my family...until the grinch showed up (my mother). The visit went so well that my dumb ass went and texted her that we had such a nice time with her and Merry Christmas. And BOOM! Christmas went to shit. Time of death...9:25. 
    She texted back with a list of what's wrong with me and the same advice she gave me as a kid. If someone is being an asshole, it's always MY fault. I fucking lost it. Told her to fuck off and burn in hell for teaching me that and setting me up for a lifetime of abuse. And then I blocked her in every way possible. She is now dead to me forever. And good riddance! I coped with a bottle of Fireball. Passed out by noon on Christmas, so overall, it went well.

    Good for you. Seriously. I found that taking that step was an essential part of shedding my baggage, feeling better about myself, and making positive changes in my life. I hope you can move forward and be kind to yourself.

    Sounds like my estranged sister. My life has been better since she's gone out of my life.

    @lastexitlondon you are not alone. And your brain chemistry is just fucking with you. I know that doesn't make it any easier to deal with. It's not fair. I'm in my dark place too so I can't offer any help except to tell you that you aren't alone in this struggle.

  • Thank you both i visited my dr and he prescribed new meds which  im reluctant to try. Also said i should not stop drinking totally because i have now given up everything and its left me isolated and with no enjoyment in life. Very depressed. My official diagnosis is of severe anxiety . Depression. And obsessive behaviour. 
    Im still abstaining from alcohol for now. Its been 4.5 weeks i think

    smart move imo on abstaining from the drink. to help combat at least some of the isolation, which isnt good for you on several levels, is to at least try some aa meetings? and or seek out some other support groups that may be in your area?

    all you have lost is perhaps a bit of your time.

  • Many thanks. Im now looking at this perscription wondering do i try medication again for what feels like the 100th time. And sit and wait for side effects to scare the shit out of me. Or do i sit it out for some more weeks. I wake so fuckin confused and distressed every single time i sleep. But my dt explained quite well about the brain. But i still don't believe him. ..... health anxiety hey!
