  1. I had a peace order against me from my ex therapist after 10 years and it is affecting me in every way please answer me

  2. This artical was very helpful. I constantly feel right at the edge. I been diagnosed with anxiety/depression disorder & PTSD. I have both a psychiatrist & therapist. I’m on multible medications prescribed by me psychiatrist. But recently feeling completely on the edge.

    1. I’m not sure how I found myself reading your response, but I wanted to mention some thing… I have been going to see a therapist in on medication for years last September I found purely by accident an article that stated that they were doing studies on Cymbalta I had been on it for 10 +years. Apparently has something called Otto toxins in it. Not sure if I’ve got that spelled properly apparently they poison your brain. I have been off of it since November, my memory has returned. I no longer have issues with my eyes swollen shut, and feeling like they’ve been scolded with hot water and there are other things also, my point is, please read carefully the side effects of the medication’s. They have you on and work on handling situation so that you were not on the medication for long periods of time because it could be causing the problem that you are having or several problems when I started losing my memory, I was told that it was just because I had so much on my plate , no one even considered that it could be the medication. I wish you the best.

      1. Hi!
        I’m a nurse and just learned something from you about Cymbalta! Besides my mom passing before the holidays my memory has not been great. I’ve been on Cymbalta for many years now. Maybe it’s time for a change. Ty!

  3. This article gave me some very helpful information. I have been edgy and snapping at everyone, including my loved pets. Cotton balls could set me off.
    I do try to relieve stress but for me unfortunately will be there til the day I die. (My husband, is a big trigger

  4. I had most of these symptoms recurring for years. I say recurring because medication and therapy helped for awhile, then a new medication would work for a while until the cycle repeated over and over. I thought I was doomed to lifelong suffering. I learned about TMS, transcranial magnetic stimulation, which turned my depressive episodes around. It’s been nothing short of miraculous. It’s rarely mentioned as an option in these types of articles but it should be. I recommend everyone who suffers repeated episodes of depression to ask their doctors about it

  5. What if you already had a nervous break…I’ve tried and tried to dig myself out and I just can’t find the desire to do anything. I don’t go anywhere, I don’t socialize with other people. I cry over everything and get mad so easy. So if anybody out there would know what I should do, by all means please don’t hesitate.
