I'm new here. I recently received inpatient help for anxiety & depression. I've had these problems to lessor extent for years but I was able to mask & function, so I never sought help. This time I got extremely paranoid when my anxiety got our of control. I've was doing ok with therapy & medication, but now my anxiety is increasing. I'm worried it could happen again and I'm thinking about my thoughts trying to see if it's happening again. I know I should be working on mindfulness exercises but I'm spending my time worrying something will trigger my anxiety. My therapist also mentioned setting goals to work towards ending therapy & while I agree, it started me worrying about what happens to me when I'm on my own. Would anyone offer suggestions or experiences about transitioning from inpatient to therapy to managing on their own?
