You are still in very early days and the anxiety is terrible at times I know - I went to the ER twice myself wondering what was going on with it. Don't worry about using valium occasionally at the moment (2.5 mg at a time). It's more important to deal with the anxiety first, which will totally disable compensation. But don't use valium as a crutch for too long. If the anxiety does not become manageable in your opinion, you need to either 1) seek help from someone to stop the catastrophic thought patterns (CBT) and feel you are getting some support or 2) use an SSRI med if the anxiety becomes chronic and more than you can handle. Be aware that going this route means being on the med for up to a year (or more) and requires a great deal of patience when coming off. For me it was well worth it.
