Struggling today- GAD

I had a rough night last night. Had an anxiety attack right before I went to bed, and then had a lot of trouble falling asleep after that. Super tired, but I have a lot going on today and hate feeling this way. Still feeling some excess anxiousness. Frustrated because I had a hard week in terms of anxiety last week and was finally starting to feel better. Now I feel like I'm back at square one again.

Damn. I hear you. It’s so disappointing to backslide like that, but be sure not to beat yourself up for it, too. You on meds?


I've been thinking about finally trying an anxiety med, but I have so much fear and anxiety about side effects or withdrawal symptoms, that I'm not sure if I could give it a long enough chance to work. (Even though I think it would be helpful to me.)
