    Yesterday I was completely freaking out. I am taking steroids on and off and I think they are messing with my mind & body. As of today I am off them for now. I'm finding myself unable to cope even with really high doses (prescribed of course) of valium,lyrica,zyprexa, lexapro, sertraline. Finding I can't control my anxiety and I am having stomach issues (I won't say what, tmi lol). Yesterday all I wanted to do was die but that's not the usual me. Steroids are either hit or miss and in this case miss, when I was on the last dose weeks ago they worked amazingly. I just need to find something to help me. I cannot go on feeling this bad. And now I'm even feeling bad for writing this here.

    Hey hun, I am sorry you are feeling so bad lately. That's not good about the steroids, you don't want anything that will make you feel worse. I hope you will be able to find something that will help you. I hope things get easier soon.

    Thanks both of you. It's just really tiring to be struggling when you're on as much meds as you can be and there's nothing they can give you because you're maxed on everything. Hopefully the steroids will just get out of my system now and all will be fine.

    Hi! I am very happy for you that you are feeling better and that they give you a shot that is actually doing some good! I am very sorry that you have been experience these levels of anxiety - I think more than depression, anxiety is really hard to deal with and calming down is hard enough *hugs*. Hang in there, I'm glad that you reached out here.

    Thanks, i feel like a million dollars now, I don't think I'll ever opt for steroids in the future. They are bad news (sometimes). I found 15 euros today on the street, that was amazing lol i felt sorry for whoever lost it but i'd never find who lost it so i will keep it and buy a chinese lol
