Hi Sara,
Everything you mentioned is exactly what's happening to me. I am taking an antidepressant(Zoloft), and i take clonipan for the anxiety, trazadone for sleep helps with anxiety also. Medicines work, sometimes as illness and stressful times come in the medicines are usually increased or changed. I know the feelings of anxiety,it is overwhelming.The panic,the mind worries,you feel like your world is closing in. With fianancial situations makes it worse(like my fiance out of work) waiting to hear from unemployment.
And yes my stomack becomes ill,no appetite, same when the phone rings I get panicked,loud tv drives me up the wall, love grandchildren but can only deal lately with a short visit. I feel my safety net is home. But i am currently getting treatment with a therapist,every 2 weeks.It helps and i am trying to do what she said.When i start feeling negetive change the channel.(not the tv). Do something to change your feeling. It's very hard for me right now, because i am having a reaction to something as you know with my skin. Could be nerves, lupus,or something else going on.

I hope you will talk to your doctor about all these feelings.There is help and we need to take care of ourselves. It's hard for our relationship because when someone loves you and wants to see you better,they try their best to understand and be there for you. Then at the same time you feel bad about your partner dealing with it. But yes, jot eveything down and discuss these symptoms with your doctor. Get well soon,and let us know how it turns out.
Hugs, Florie
