It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this level of anxiety– I can barely type or think complete thoughts. The election is causing everyone anxiety but I have other things weighing on me too.
The clinic where I get my TMS and ketamine treatments done has a patient that tested positive for COVID-19 and it’s been closed until the MN department of health gives them direction to reopen. So far I have missed 2 TMS sessions, and 1 infusion.
My NP, Laurie is going to start me on a newer anti-depressant (that also helps with anxiety) called Viibryd. I need to wait until the Klonopin withdrawal symptoms are over– so far i’ve been completely off of it for over 24 hours and I’m still feeling physically miserable. Once that’s over, i’ll be back on the road to finding the right medication.
This Friday morning I will have my first neuro-psych test with a psychologist at Natalis Counseling. When we find out the results they will guide us on our next steps, my NP wants to have me continue CBT therapy. I have a long road ahead of me.
Be well, be kind
