So my ARNP prescribed me Inderal, a blood pressure med, today for my anxiety.
It’s super cheap (9.99 for generic, 60 count, 10mg at Walgreens with the RX savings card) and it worked the first time I took it!
It’s meant to help with the physical symptoms of anxiety, mainly racing heart rate. I have been struggling with horrible agoraphobia because I am so anxious to go out in public places by myself. I went to a support group tonight and took my first pill 20 minutes ahead of time and it worked!
On a side note: She thinks I may have adult ADD. She is prescribing Ritalin for me to start in two weeks at our next appointment. Hopefully it will help me focus on school work.
I am in the midst of applying and filling out numerous novels for SSDI (social security disability income). It is extremely nerve wracking and stressful. I also applied for food stamps earlier tonight.
Luckily, my depression is finally under control. I still have that underlying “low” feeling all of the time but I am no longer suicidal or wanting to burn myself. It’s been about two months!
Sunday is my birthday and I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing in my 27 years here on Earth. It’s pretty shitty but I’ll manage, I guess. Another year, well… whatever.
