Anxiety dating again
but anyway i stopped taking my pills 5 days ago and i dont feel any better. so i hope once my period stops i will start to feel normal again. just use condoms and deal with the horrible cramps. theres a good chance a new pill will make you feel even worse so ITS NOT WORTH IT. i had no idea other girls felt crazy like me and im not the only one. i started taking estrostep when i was 20 and i had full blown anxiety attacks for a whole year every day. i tried cooking dinner last night and i just started crying i was so stressed about finishing it on time because we were going to a movie afterwards. I've been on tri-sprintec for about 6 months now, after having been on Loestrin and switching because it was making me wacky.
i called my doctor and he said it might even take a month or two months for the hormones to wear off. but he said its ok to quit cold so glad i figured out it was my pill because if i didn't me and my boyfriend would of definately broke up. I might be an excessive Google diagnoser, but finding this made me feel so much better.
I am now 39 years old and for most of my life, I have suffered from moderate to high anxiety and subsequently mild depression.
I vividly remember when I was a child of around the age of five or six, I would be plagued by constant worry and anxiety about any change that might affect my family or me.
I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes. I was just wondering if anyone had similar side effects from birth control pills. I just want to say thanks to everyone who posted these posts on here. i couldn't even drive a car i felt like i was insane. my anxiety attacks went away after a year and i was fine but i was extremely hungry all the time. i now feel like a raging lunatic and i dont even know who i am anymore. The past week or so I had noticed I would randomly feel lightheaded, not like I was going to pass out but I just felt strange.
The three main aims of this site are to provide a of SA problems and campaign for change, so that in future, people afflicted by them don"t have to suffer in silence as so many of us have done in the past.
I knew from what I heard about anxiety attacks that it felt like one was coming on, so I went outside and just sat on my porch and took deep breaths.
Nevertheless, it was completely alarming because I have never felt anything like that before.
SA-UK is a volunteer-led organisation so don"t expect a miracle cure!
However, most of us have found that just finding out more about the issues and talking to other people who know what it is like to experience the same problems has been truly beneficial.
