Beginning a new relationship triggered anxiety/dep

Posted by shadowmon on March 27, 2008, at 1:23:14

Does anyone else have this problem? You meet someone you like, and when you are having feelings for them, the anxiety and depression gets triggered, thus ruining the relationship.

I have gone through this so many times that I can't deal with it anymore. I see a Psych dr and have been for years. I'm diagnosed with GAD and Depression. Met a goy I could have a potential relationship with. He's understanding and kind, having gone through depression himself. He's very supportive.

In the last few weeks or so, my anxiety is out of control. Do I like him, do I like him as a friend? Do I not like him? Why am I questioning if I like him, because if I did, I wouldnt be questioning that, will I like him once I get better? and so on and so forth. It's obvious it has triggered my GAD and I can't tell which way is up. I can feel the depression creeping in as well.

So Pdoc suggests I change from what I am on (paxil cr 75 mg) to Effexor (who knows what dose) and that I have to whittle down to avoid serotonin syndrome.

I should be enjoying a potential new relationship, but instead I am ruining it for myself and possibly for him. I don't want to "let him get away, as he is one of the few guys I have met that have understood my anxiety and depression. I don't know what to do. Does anyone feel this way?
