After years of depression it went and anxiety came. For 3 years it followed a pattern meaning I had 3 month breaks.

For nearly 2 years It's been getting worse. Ups and downs. In September I went on pregabalin (I already take ADs) .Until 5 weeks ago I was much better. The last 5 weeks have been really bad.

I did though, get periods of good days. I think I seriously overdid things. Can this floor you even if you enjoyed the activities?

I think I need to change my ADs. I've been on them 17 years and am psychologically dependent on them.

I think I need any thoughts people can give. I just feel scared

Hi, I’m sorry you have been having a hard time of it lately.
I find that if my anxiety is under control, I can end up pushing myself too hard, which kicks me back to anxiety. But not always. Sometimes I just don’t know why the bad feelings come back.
Do you have an appointment to see your doctor?

I suppose the obvious question is has anything changed leading up to 5 weeks ago :hug:

Hi Victorianna and OCDguy

My appt isn't until the end of June but I'm going to try to get a cancellation.

Leading up to this bad spell I was working hard to finish making a blanket. I wanted to shelve it as I knew it was stressing me but didn't want to let my friend down. Also we were at a wedding last week which had quite a big build up to it. How related this is I don't know.

Thank you both for answering.
