    Anxiety

    Anyone else suffer from Anxiety or Panic Disorder? I've had it for atleast a year now. Thought I got rid of it for a while, but recently it picked back up.

    I don't, but my sister does. She was just diagnosed last month. She sees a therapist now and takes meds I think.

    Yup! I have general anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and agoraphobia. I've been getting it mostly under control but it's definitely a struggle, and the littlest things will set me off sometimes (for example, I'm applying for a pet I really want right now on Neo and my anxiety is THROUGHTHEROOF about it). I have full-blown panic attacks on average once every week or two.

    I'm on a benzodiazepine for it, but benzos are kinda messy to deal with (side effects include increased risk of suicides, ridiculous memory abilities, and awful withdrawal symptoms if you need to discontinue the medication for any reason).

    Im afraid to take meds for it because it was mix in meds that cause my first serious panic attack that sent me to the er. I know it's a little irrational but it's just how I am.

    It's not irrational (okay maybe it is) but I totally get it. The whole reason I became agoraphobic is because I fainted once outdoors and was so embarrassed I locked myself in my apartment for 3 months (literally...).

    Have you seen a psychiatrist about it? There's such a plethora of new meds out there that maybe you and a psych can work together to figure out something your comfortable taking. Hell, even take a multivitamin and tell yourself it'll help with your anxiety - you might notice a difference. That sounds stupid, but the mind is a powerful thing.

    I've been through counseling once, and it somewhat help, only reason I stopped was because of my insurance. I plan on trying to get back into it soon

    I recommend getting back into that ASAP. Do you know what your triggers are?
