My Anxiety Gets So Bad

my fifth time going to the psychiatrist and I've been taking xanapam alprazolam 0.5mg since then.

I wonder how far the meds worked.. I'm still self-conscious in public.

All I have with me so far is a little book of calm and a bracelet. I play with it when I'm agitated. the book acts as a distraction.

I shouldmight be starting some medication soon. Hope they work for you.

Hey there. Yeah. I was on Effexor for a little while for my SAD. It worked a little bit, mainly to help curb the symptoms like a racing heart and sweating. However, it never got rid of the underlying anxiety, plus it had some unpleasant side effects as well. However you need to manage your SAD, I say go for it. Any little bit helps.
