What can I say, this has been the roughest week yet since my stroke. My anxiety and depression have really escalated the past week. I saw my doctor and just started taking Zoloft. I understand it takes a bit to kick in. I've lost my appetite and nothing sounds good. It took all my will just to get out of bed and come to work today. I am seeing a therapist this afternoon so hope that will help to talk to someone. My mind has just been going crazy lately, don't know if it's stroke recovery or what's going on. Just want to be happy again. I've got 3 girls relying on me and much supportive family. We leave for AZ on vacation this Monday, which may be a part of the anxiety, but I know it will be good to get away. I didn't realize how hard mental recovery is, and how difficult it is to get through each day.
