I have always had a problem with anxiety, for years it seems. Here lately it has gotten worse and out of hand. I love my job but it causes me anxiety problems. Financial problems have worsened and heightened my anxiety problems. For the last month, gradually, I have gotten worse and worse.
I feel like I am going to break in a million pieces at times. This comes and goes, as I use the skills I have been taught, to keep the anxiety at bay. The worse the anxiety gets, the less the skills work for me. I am currently on Buspar, 30 mg.
I am not due to see a Dr for 2 weeks. I am just holding on and taking lots of deep breaths.
I am so glad to find a board where I am not alone.
You are not alone. My job deteriorated over a year or so, until I couldn't take it any more. Luckily, I was approved for disability. I'm on Xanax (2 mg. 2x daily) and it helps, but not always. I'm not familiar with Buspar, I'll have to look it up. I wish you the best either way!

I know how you feel. I am not on any medications yet. When I was in college, I would skip school just to stay home because I was so anxious. It was also mixed with depression. Hang in there you can push through it. Its really a relief to see that people go through the same things I go through.
