I'm a RN working in a mental hospital, and I feel like I'm going nuts sometimes. (Ironic eh?) I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I'm very happy with my life; a good job, a lovely fiancé, friends, and yet on a daily basis I have anxiety that overwhelms me, with no apparent reason. It would be easier if I could say "this is what's making me anxious" but I'm feeling all of this anxiety for no reason, it comes on suddenly out of the blue and can last for hours. Xanax helps most of the time but not always, and I don't want to depend on it. I feel a pressure in my head, have trouble focusing, become irritable, etc. I've seen multiple therapists but have never found much help from them. I've tried so many different medications and finally am starting to feel better on Gabapentin, but still get these random bouts of anxiety.
