anxiety I had all my life

Hi, joining your group. I was just diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, and I have major insomnia issues. The anxiety I had all my life, but just finally officially diagnosed at 37 years old. Insomnia has been for almost 10 years now. Tried a bunch of different meds. I'm very sensitive to meds, so most made me feel sick or worse, so I just dealt with my problems. Now my psychiatrist put me on Klonopin and it's really helping. Been on it for two weeks now, and she said to take it for 6 to 8 wks to regulate my sleep/wake cycle. I only take .25 at night. It's great when the feeling lingers into the next day to help with anxiety. I feel like I need a higher dose, but I have a baby and toddler waking me up a lot at night right now, so the .25 is good for now. I also like Xanax, but giving the Klonopin a try for a while. Well, that's my story
