Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety is a physical condition marked by intense and persistent feelings of distress, fear, angst or dread. General anxiety caused by routine day-to-day stresses usually passes quickly and is experienced by almost everyone at one time or another. However, such feelings that linger over time and are very difficult to cope with, and which lack a clear cause, may indicate an anxiety disorder.

    I've never joined a depression or anxiety support group before. I've been thinking I should find one in my area to actually go to in person but... you know.. Anxiety (haha). I'm hoping this might help. I have Generalized and Social Anxiety Disorders with a nice big helping of Major Depressive Disorder. I just went up to 200 mg Zoloft and I take 2-4 0.5 mg tabs of Klonopin every day. I still feel...

    Anxiety about...life

    Hi, curious to know if any of you are experiencing the same kind of anxiety as I...I have fully grasped that if we live, everyone will be old and likely ill in some kind of way. I have also fully grasped that in a relatively short time, considering that the universe is billions of years old, death for us all is right around the corner, that we truly are here for only a brief amount of time. I...
  • My anxiety is in danger of affecting my personal relationship. I find myself constantly wanting to ask for validation that he really wants to be with me (it's a long distance relationship...which is new for me). How do I keep this in check and trust in the evidence right in front of me that he does want to be with me? Does anyone else have this problem?

  • Has anyone used beta blockers for anxiety? My doctor just prescribed it today and I'm shocked I never knew this was an option. I've been using Xanax as needed, which is sometimes 2-3 times a day, and sometimes I go weeeks without needing one. But even with Xanax, I have a hard time getting my heart rate down. It was sky high today which alarmed the doc and she did an EKG and all is well with my...

Do you think I could get pill to work again if I...

    I used to not be like this. I used to love storms, I'd go into the garage with my dad and hear the thunder roll by and watch the lightning in almost peaceful bliss. Now, even cartoon storms causes my chest to contrict and my heart to pound. I feel like there is something wrong with me now...I'm tired of living with this fear of storms. I can't make myself drive if I think that there is a...
