I posted this on the medication and treatment forum but it seems kind of slow there... I have social anxiety disorder and my doctor prescribed Prozac. For about three days, it was working wonders. The only way I can describe it was that I felt perfectly balanced. Not really happy, just balanced. It's either been up OR down for the past two years, and nowhere in between - so i thought it was working. Until friday. I was at work and there was a phone call. I answered it to help the customer, and out of nowhere I started feeling intensely afraid. That feeling did not subside for the rest of the day. After I left work, I went up to my friend's college to visit for the weekend. We were sitting around drinking a bit, and the feeling got worse. Ever since that day I've been having severe suicidal thoughts and I don't really know what to do. Friday was the last day I took Prozac, because I think it might have actually made my anxiety worse. But now I don't know what to do. I'm afraid to go to work, and I'm afraid to be around friends - people that I've known for years. This kind of thing has been on and off ever since the end of high school, but the extremes are getting worse. So in other words, I'll be intensely afraid of friends and work, or very very happy to be at work and around people. I don't really know why or how this developed. Because of it, the only person I'm close to anymore is my twin brother - he's the only one i'm comfortable around. Everyone else, even those I've known for years and year - I have anxiety around them. And I hate these ups and downs. Just when I think something is better, it's suddenly twice as bad as it ever was.
