That didn't end up the way I typed it. I hope it makes sense

@1less This is all so much for you to handle. I am sorry you lost your job right after being diagnosed. I understand worry about finances. Have you seen a therapist yet, or you committed to your medicine. I sure hope you have a plan. Regardless, we are here for you. I have PTSD and have struggled for a long time. Post often and give us an update. Hugs

Marie5309 Thank you. I have been trying to see a therapist, but it will be a few weeks until I can see someone. I'm not sure about the medication. It seems to me that Dr's in general prescribe medication immediately before figuring out what is actually needed. The listed side effects made wonder if the cure was worse than the issue. I loved the " caution has been shown to increase suicidal thoughts in some patients". I don't know what my plan is. So far I'm just going to get through this waiting period and get an evaluation before I start the medication. Most of the things that triggered my anxiety, fear, and flashbacks were at work. Maybe having to find a new job will be be beneficial. I've worked every day for the last 36 years. Not having any schedule or direction is causing some anxiety.

In your experience, what has worked for you?
