#growingupwithanxiety : More Than a Trending Hashtag

#growingupwithanxiety _More Than a Trending Hashtag

Every time I log into Twitter, the first thing I do is check the Trends.  Sometimes I click through a few of them, often times I don’t, but today there is one that really hits home for me.  That one is #growingupwithanxiety.

I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder and generalized anxiety disorder soon after my second child was born and my marriage to my (now ex-)husband was ending.  Up until I sought out a therapist, I really believed that everything I had…

Driving Anxiety 101 – Thirteen years in the making.

First Step: Experience a traumatic event in which you feel you have no control.

When I turned thirty, my world shrunk drastically. I took a road trip with my three year old from North Florida to the Appalachian mountains in my 15 year old crappy Toyota van to visit another single mom friend. We never made it to the mountains. Instead, the van’s electrical…

A new study out of the UK has suggested that prolonged use of tylenol and other painkillers during pregnancy may increase your future son's risk of infertility and testicular cancer. In fact, taking any painkiller during the second trimester doubles your baby boy's risk of reproductive problems in the future.

Next Time Someone's Riding Your Bumper Get Out of Their Way!

I’m downsizing. I weaned off of my prescription for anxiety now that I don’t need it anymore. It was making my ADHD worse because it suppresses dopamine. But now I keep trying to shove other stuff in my brain. I keep trying to tweak it, to feel better, then feel better than that. I’ll use anything, food, caffeine, music, movies. I tried meds for ADHD. I tried wellbutrin briefly but it kicked my neuroreceptors’ butt. I would have preferred a gentle nudge. I tried herbs that have to build up in… Continue

The Confusion of Ante-Partum Depression: To Medicate or Not

Finding yourself faced with depression during pregnancy is a confusing prospect indeed. How do you treat it? Do you tough it out and hope there is no effect on your pregnancy? Or do you risk medication and the potential effects that course may have on your baby as well? In addition, many care-givers are hesitant to medicate a pregnant mother for depression or even worse, are not familiar with ante-partum depression and negate the mother’s concerns over her mental health. If your caregiver… Continue

Starting School Smarts

You've got a child with a mental health diagnosis who's ready to start the new school year.



What do you say and to whom do you say it?



I found some pointers from James Waxmonsky, MD, and have elaborated on them here:



* If your child had no problems in school last year and doesn't take meds at school you may not need to talk to her new teacher. Don't, however, assume that everything will always continue to go smoothly. Make a point of checking in with her teacher… Continue
