I just want to give you a few thoughts from the social worker in me! Depression and anxiety can cause physical symptoms in your body. They don't just affect your feelings. I see people in the ER all of the time who believe they are having a heart attack, but it is actually anxiety. I don't remember all of the physical symptoms off hand, but I'm pretty sure that some of the things you mentioned can come with depression and/or anxiety. You should google physical symptoms of depression and anxiety. I know you said that you don't want to be on meds for it and that's fine, but maybe going to a counselor or social worker instead would help. And if you change your mind about the medicine, I do know people on lexapro, paxil, and zoloft who think that it is the greatest thing! I know that we all tend to get wrapped up in our kids lives and sometimes forget to have our own! I am definitely looking forward to girls night tomorrow. And maybe we need to try to schedule a few more play dates. Drew is old enough now that he would have fun, too. That way the moms can have time to hang out together, too!Hang in there! And feel free to call me anytime when you're feeling lonely!
I have been having lots of random issues too, so I feel your pain. I am putting off going to the doctor, maybe someday. Hope you figure out a solution to feeling better.
May I ditto EVERYTHING Jill said? I also would like to add that if you do decide to take medicine, you don't have to take it FOREVER.
I'm so sorry. It can be terribly frustrating when there is no answer. Especially after you tried so hard to find it. I hope things look up soon.
