I’m new to this site/community and need some advice.
I’ve had Generalized anxiety disorder since August of 2016. I have gotten my anxiety under control for the most part but every 2 months or so I have periods of intense anxiety. I’m currently in one of those periods, it’s been about a week and it’s affecting my daily life to an extreme. I feel like I’m spiraling out of control and if I can’t get this under control I’m going to develop mania or end up going crazy.
I have a therapist I’ve been seeing for about a year but don’t have the money or good enough insurance to cover a psychiatrist for medication.
(I was on Zoloft for 8 months and stopped September of last year because I didn’t like how it was affecting my sex life and making me generally just numb).
I’m not sure what to do or how to relieve my anxiety in these intense-anxiety periods. I need help I feel like I’m going crazy.
