A Christmas Miracle truly has occurred in my life!
November 25, 2023 5:13am CST
I have written about me having anxiety. I have had it for 40+ years. However, the last three or four months have been excruciating and I have been suffering. don't worry I won't bring you down this holiday season as this gets better! The grounding techniques I talked about here stopped working after one or two times, then stopped working. Back to the Christmas miracle! I went to get my injection and had to see my doctor on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Somehow my doctor finally noticed I was suffering from too much anxiety. Before I knew it, he was increasing the dose of the anxiety medicine I take from 30 mg a day to 45 mg a day taken three times a day! After two doses I already feel a bit better I don't feel as nervous and I am not even washing my hands as much which is from an anxiety disorder my mind feels clearer now. I feel like I have a new life! However, the increased dose has made me drowsy. I had 8 hours of sleep last night and I am tired again because I took my morning dose. today I woke up last night around midnight and went back to bed something I haven't done in years! Yes, Christmas miracles do occur! Have you ever had a Christmas Miracle occur in your life or seen one in a friend or family member's life?

Thank you very much! I didn't mind sleeping so much from it. I hope it lasts longer as today is only the first full day I have been on it. Yesterday I only took my bedtime dose as I got home too late for the afternoon dose. it is a blessing the anxiety is being held and I slept last night. It was nice sleeping! the only problem is I looked it up and it says that I can be dizzy from it. I have been slightly dizzy all day and last night after I took it
I am so glad that you found something that works for you. I will need to increase the medication dose too. I know how it feels when you finally find something that works. It's a miracle indeed. I had some miracles, but they weren't happening when Christmas came.
@dya80dya Yes I have had enough as I am sure you have severe anxiety. How are you feeling? I am not feeling well unless I am using distractions to keep my mind so busy that I don't think about my anxiety because my mind is so engaged in distracting myself. For example, a distraction I did this morning before I left this morning was to rearrange my silverware in the silverware drawer. and another thing is I have been cleaning my desk every day in the evening after I use it all day. I started to do a lot of other things today and they are slightly working. Just keeping busy.
Thank you! I had my case manager over for a home visit this morning and she said I look great! I look relaxed and I even look happy and some other great things. With the new increased dose of anxiety medicine, my psychiatrist gave me last week and the medicine my primary care doctor gave me for a physical problem that makes me tired my case manager also said I am probably doing better because I am sleeping a decent amount each night. Overall, I think my case manager was thrilled with how well I am doing!
