Do you cry easily? Do you find loud noises overwhelming? Do you take a long time to make decisions? Do you daydream a lot? Do you have difficulty multi-tasking? Have people described you as being high-strung, emotional or over-sensitive? If you have experienced any of the above, you could be a highly sensitive person.

What is a Highly Sensitive Person?

The holiday season is a time of wonder, joy, and goodwill. So why are you so stressed?

The truth is the holiday season is a time of stress and anxiety for a lot of people. There are ads demanding that we buy, buy, buy; aimed at convincing us that nothing, absolutely nothing, says “love” like something big, shiny, and expensive under the perfectly decorated tree.

Went to OCD/Anxiety Support Group Last Night

Posted 10-04-2013 at 04:27 AM by AnxietyGirl74

I was a little nervous about going and took a Klonopin beforehand, but it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

I liked Luvox CR when I was on it, but it hasn't nearly been as good as Paxil has. Verdict is still out on Paxil CR since I'm still so new to it.

Another Visit to P-Doc Today

Posted 10-02-2013 at 10:03 AM by AnxietyGirl74

Bottom of the ocean depressed again today, and so anxious last night, I woke up twice. The first time I took a Klonopin, but I didn't the second since I had taken one before going to bed, too. He increased my Paxil CR to 75 mgs and since I was already on Paxil CR 50 mgs (2 25 mg tablets I went ahead home and took another 25 mg tablet so I started the 75 mg today). Man, I hope this helps. So tired of this. We have tried adding Ailify 5 mgs, which helped some, increasing Anafranil to 150 2 75 mg...
