I've been a yo yo for 2 weeks since a new guy at work got hired. I have social anxiety bad at times. I have been off Effexor for 5 months but had my psychiatrist put me back on last week. It was stressful but manageable at first but the last few days I have almost lost control. Sometimes talking about with someone will make me feel somewhat normal or calm again but then I will wake up super anxious and very unsure of myself. Today I was super anxious and then seemed to shut down emotionally and forget how to interact with my coworkers who I've known for years. I've convinced myself medication won't change my thinking process which is new people won't like me as much as someone else. I am usually fine in a familiar situation but freak out with mixed company or even with a friend and their friend. My mind is all over the place and I don't know if it is just worry or something chemical. I am seeing my psychiatrist again Wed. but I'm scared that at best I may find a dosage that helps some but will never be able to interact with new people again. No matte how many people tell me I'm liked I can only think I'm a good back up. I so hope this an effect of my situation at the moment and not being on my medication but I would have some freak outs even when on it. Any advice or help would be so helpful. Thank you!
