Anyone out there that can not work, or on disablity, due to anxiety?

Deal Score0

I was just pulled from work for the next week by my dr. for severe anxiety. I am having trouble coping with the stresses of everyday life. I feel as though I can not tread water anymore and I am sinking. I work full time, as a mortgage loan officer, I have 3 boys aunder age of 8. My stress from home and work are piling up so that I can not seem to do anything right! I would love to stop working all together as that seems as though it would help me function much better, however, we just cannot afford it as I carry the health insurance, etc.. for the family. Any suggestions as to how I can somehow remain on disabilty until my life gets back in order?

    I’m somewhat familiar — disability is harder to get for “anxiety” than it is for depression. If you’re seriously considering it, find a doctor who is familiar with disability claims, if possible. Good luck.

    okay, coming from experience…its anxiety and there are many ways (tools) for coping with it and keeping it under control. You might want to get on a anti-anxiety medication or go to counseling for it. I don’t believe you should be on disability…that’s not getting your life back its an excuse to not get through this trying time…You get your life back by doing something to fix the problem for good, and for your family, so you Can go to work and support your children. You can do it and deal with anxiety but it sounds to me like you don’t want to do anything about it but take the easy road, its kind of like a cop out. If you don’t get your anxiety under control then it could take over your life!!! Trust me

    I would contact your social security office to see if you are eligible for benefits. If you want your life back, get on ativan tabs to get you through this rough period (I take 1 mg 3x a day and there is a cheap genetic called lorazepam), take up yoga, avoid caffeine and learn to meditate and do deep breathing exercises. It took me 7 months, but I pulled it together and only ended up missing 2 weeks of work. Believe me, it wasn’t easy. I’m a mom too and it sucked. Good luck to you.

    My anxiety was so debilitating that i took vacation after vacation leave until i ran out. Then i took sick leave and compensatory leave, man i worked the system until they all ran out. I tried anxiety medication Effexor, after the 4th day of taking it my anxiety attacks got worse, much worse. I immediately refused to take Prescriptions and opted for natural remedies that work. After i tried it i am much better and back out to work, i know i won’t have to worry about anxiety again. This is what i did. After reading the book “Natural Cures They Don’t Want You To Know About” by Kevin Trudeau i gained much insight into how to take care of your body and never get sick again. This is what i did to get rid of my anxiety.

    A colon cleanse
    Parasite cleanse (most ppl dont know that worms and parasites causes severe anxiety)
    Candida cleanse
    Liver/gallbladder cleanse
    Kidney cleanse
    P.S. Take the colon and parasite cleanse together so that while flushing the colon worms and parasites will be expelled along with them.

    Now while i took the cleanses one by one i supplemented my body with something that brings the body back into balance. It’s called Maca Root. It is anti anxiety as well. Here is a list of what Maca Root is good for. What doctors won’t tell you is that if you cleanse your body you will basically get rid of many ailments, like anxiety, depression, constipation, dizziness, insomnia, stomach problems, acne, hair loss etc. If they tell you these things then you won’t need them and their pockets will be empty. Cleansing simply gets rid of built up toxins in the body that is making you sick.

    And last but not least, i took Super Greens. This Greens is full of antioxidants and super powers the body, giving it maximum supplementation. When the body is acidic you develop all sorts of problems like acid reflux, heartburn, constipation, irregular periods, PMS, Insomnia, dizziness, fatigue and extreme fatigue, weakness etc. Super Green turns the body from acidic to alkaline, which is the way it is supposed to be in order to never be sick. You will never suffer from anxiety once your body’s PH is Alkaline and your hormones are balance. I know this seems long but the bottom line is…

    Cleanse the body (herbal cleanses)
    Balance the body’s hormones with Maca Root
    Supercharge your body with Super Greens which in turn gives you energy like never before. Below is where you can get these things. I am a proud anxiety survivor using natural methods. Smile, you will get better and conquer anxiety.
