I started having my really anxious thoughts for the first time in about a week and a half (4 weeks into taking anxiety meds) it was weird because even though it’s still fairly early on, I definitely notice a huge difference and pretty rarely have the anxious feeling (I used to feel that anxiety pretty much all the time) but even after just a week of feeling more free from my anxiety, I’ve started to get used to not being anxious and getting used to not being in fear all the time. So when I felt the thoughts creeping in I thought to myself “this is minor, and it’s nothing I haven’t dealt with before” (which was never really something that would cross my mind before the meds, usually it was just panic and “OMG this is the worst I can’t handle anything, I think I could die”) I also feel it and feel really thankful that that doesn’t HAVE to be my normal anymore! I’m still learning, I’m still getting used to the fact that anxiety ISNT my normal anymore. I’m still re-learning so much, re-learning the things to fear and the things that I don’t have to fear anymore. I’m so thankful for the support of friends, and that I’m fortunate enough to have the means to get medication!
