__serpentine__: Miss Choco invited me here...

I hope it's all okay... I've never been diagnosed as bi-polar, but I have several other diagonisis that keep me manic and give me a voice I think might work here (GAD with Panic Disorder, PTSD, Agoraphobia and depression- ta da!)

Anyway, after taking a four month haitus to try the natural route, I'm offically back on meds today... Lexapro (with five ativan in case I experience awful side effects like I did with Celexa- so far so good, just really spacey)

Anway- I joined this forum for people with panic disorders, don't really feel a groove there and am really looking for other mamas who deal with this shit because it's hard anyway, but having a kid and doing this scares the shit out of me and I could really use the support...

I'm usually more articulate than this, just a bit weird today....

Heart,

Angela

how was "the natural route" ? i am bipolar and have GAD with panic disorder.. i'm on 4 different meds right now and am still anxious and feel spaced out and shaky alot...
i have a 4 yr old and he totally feeds off my anxiety even though i hide it really well... i'm lucky to have a partner who helps alot...
i try to knit and take hot baths and do whatever i can to relax if i am high anxiety around my son..
it is still really scary and i do the best i can...

you sounded plenty articulate to me.. :)
