Re: anxiety taking over my life.

Worry, I too have had GAD, Panic Disorder, and Depression since I was 14. I'm 39 now. To be totally honest with you, the ONLY thing that has helped me is medication. I take Zoloft, and Xanax. Have you tried taking medication for it in the past?

Re: anxiety taking over my life.

Please don't be afraid to take the Zoloft, it really has been a life saver for me, and many others on this board. I have taken it off and on for about 10 years now. I'm currently on my 4th time, and I don't think i'm going off of it again. The anxiety and panic just keep coming back.
Start out slow, at a low dose, and work yourself up. The klonopin should help take care of any side effects, if you should get any. What dosage do they want you at, and what did your doc tell you to start at? If I have this info, i'll gladly share a good titration schedule with you. Take care, Fox

Re: anxiety taking over my life.

Its very important to stay positive. when we think positive, we do things in a positive manner....the outcome is always better...things turn out to be good...people around us stay happy and feel good with us.... and an over all environment, both internal and external, becomes harmonious !
