Ok here goes! I was hanging out with friends, and I use that term lightly. They were smoking what I thought was the weed. I took one long hit and immediately started feeling panicky.
I started running down the street, and I lost all control over my body. I saw my past flash in front of my eyes. It was the scariest thing I have ever gone through. I didn’t know this was the synthetic weed. The friends who were smoking it, the drug never affected them. So it affects some people and some it doesn’t. I stop talking to them for a while I was pissed later on months later we were cool.
Anyway, I ended up going to the emergency room, and my doctor put me on Celexa. I couldn’t drive or walk far, or cook for myself, I was tired and helpless for about 5 months. Since then, I have been on depressants and Xanax, Prozac.
I have tried a couple prescription drugs to help with panic attacks terrible anxiety. I can’t work eight hours anymore. I can’t stand for long periods before my chest starts hurting and anxiety overtakes my body. It has ruined my goals.
I fight every day to get better. I’m seeing a new doctor figure out what really is wrong. This happened in 2009, and it’s 2018. Is anyone else on medication or disability now? I got denied disability.
