Hello, I'm 33 year old mother of 2 boys, aged 6 and 7.
I was just recently diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression. I have started my medication however it takes up to 4 to 6 weeks for the it to take effect. The anxiety is so debilitating! Its worse when I wake up in the morning because its still there! I have anxiety that lasts all day and my biggest fear is I will never get my normal life back! And that I will suffer forever. I'm finding it hard to take my boys out places that they enjoy because the panic is so bad. I know it will get better when the medication takes effect but its going to feel so long and scary till that happens...any moms out there with similar situation that can shed some support my way...would mean more then you know!
