Do you have any medical conditions?

I do, I suffer with hydrocephalus. I often get really bad headaches and usually shut off/pass out from them.

D: That sounds scary ;-; I'm sorry you have to go through that :c I hate headaches- I get really bad migraines regularly. But to shut off... I can't seem to do that. But passing out is scary >w<

Ugh, that sounds awful!

Meds can be pretty strange though. You never realize how much they help till you don't take them. I get so anxious if I don't take my anxiety and anti-depression ones.

Some of that can actually be withdrawal. There's a reason they tell you never to stop your meds cold turkey- you have to ease off them just like you have to ease onto them. The body gets used to having a certain amount in it, and when that suddenly disappears, it gets confused.

I think that's part of my problem. I'm not consistent with my anxiety meds...

What does your prescription say to do? 'cause I have one or two meds that work on my anxiety but aren't literally for my anxiety, and one antihistamine that's for my panic attacks that I only take as needed.

My hands shake/tremble. doc says it's anxiety but im not so sure. but it probably is anxiety i just want to believe it's something else. I used to draw a lot as a kid. but sometime in my teenage years i noticed while sketching if i tense my hand up even a little bit sometimes my hand just starts shaking uncontrollably. also occurs in intense social situations so yea, probably anxiety.

Maybe it's something else that is aggravated by your anxiety? I feel like they sometimes want to blame everything on anxiety or depression...

Yeah, I haven't been on meds since I was 14 though, so nearly 15 years now, and i'm managing without them, the headaches aren't frequent enough to warrant meds but they are frequent enough to prevent me from doing a lot of things.....if that makes sense. :P docs say I just need to stay away from stressful situations 90% of the time. :P Easier said than done though I suppose?
