Back Again...

I have been doing really well for quite some time now. Meds have been working. But for a few weeks now I have been feeling anxiety and depression greatly. My neck and shoulders hurt from the anxiety and it often feels like I will hyperventilate. I am really tired all the time and feel like I could cry. I do not like feeling this way. I have been hesitant to visit my psychiatrist because I feel he will only up my dosage of meds. I am thinking of seeing my counselor so I can talk out some feelings. I feel like I am wrapped in a cocoon and struggling to get out.

Thanks, it is just sometimes the effort to stay well becomes so tiring.

Try not to feel discouraged. We can and do take 4 steps forwards and 3 steps back.<br />
I sounds like you have worked out the answer, which is to see your counsellor to talk about your feelings. Good idea.
