My daughter has been struggling with extreme anxiety for two months. She is a second year grad student and she is employed. She feels like her world has turned upside down because she can't sit still long enough to concentrate on her studies. She can't be productive at work. She doesn't want to communicate with friends. Today, the doctor prescribed anxiety medication because the other strategies for relief have failed (not giving up, though). She took the medication and finally made it through a day of work without anxiety or a panic attack.
I have been searching the Internet for answers, and I've learned there are no simple answers. One of my searches led me to this support group.
