So if you follow my personal Facebook, you know that 3 things happened in the past week...
New anxiety medication (HEY-O!)
Stepping in a gym for the first time in a LOOOOONG time
My first ever Zumba class!
Let's start from the beginning shall we?
So again with Facebook (I know, I know...I probably share WAY too much...whatev), if you follow me then you might have noticed that over the past month or so my anxiety attacks have been much worse. We're talking "Stevie's freaking out at her desk" bad.
So after being bad and not seeing my therapist for almost 2 months, yes TWO (which for someone with severe anxiety is just unacceptable), I made an appointment to see the ever wonderful Melissa Harrell.
After talking to Melissa, we have narrowed down that stress (DUH) and social settings are what trigger my anxiety attacks...this we already knew...what we didn't (and honestly still don't) know and/or understand is why these attacks are happening with the above situations don't apply. More than likely, it's probably stress that I'm honestly not aware of. Anywho, during my wonderful session, we decided that the medication I was only simply wasn't doing it job anymore, and since Dr. Dumbass (AKA Dr. Chengappa) refused, yes I said REFUSED, to change my medication, we simply changed Cra-Cra Doctors.
So I saw my new Cra-Cra...his name is Dr. Attia and he's awesome. He put me on Zoloft, Klonopin and Ambien, and they. are. amazing. All of them. I have noticed that the Ambien makes me do really weird things, like super crazy FB status'. They're actually quite amusing. I have to go to my page every morning and read what I wrote because let's be honest...I don't remember for the life of me. Let me share with you my favorite Ambien-induced FB status:
