AmyeH Posted September 25, 2011 Report Share Posted September 25, 2011 Hi guys and girls,I need some advice please.I am yet to see a proper pattern with my anxiety and depression. It started with just anxiety 14 months ago and then after a few months turned in to depression and then I had anxiety and depression. Now I've been on Lexapro for a couple of months the depression has lessened but the anxiety got worse (possibly to do with situation). Now I'm at a stage where the anxiety has lessened also and is at an even keel with the depression.So I should be feeling better but I'm not. (I don't expect to feel 100% better of course). There is something niggling there in the background which feels quite strong and it's scary. The psychologist at the hospital said that I need to be very careful to catch it before it comes out very bad and then I end up for several weeks in hospital. That's why they are trying to get me to go now in to hospital for a few days. If the pattern follows the same way around this time also then the anxiety will put me in to a depression. But even though my anxiety hasn't been too bad, my depression feels stronger.I'm just very confused and not even sure entirely what I am feeling. I'm on one hand feeling OK but on the other, am not. Thoughts of self-harming and ending my life.Does both depression and anxiety both come in waves? I am not sure what to expect. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
