Before i begin I would like to add that I am not officially diagnosed with GAD but have been going to a therapist for a few months now. She has directed me to most anxiety calming methods (discoursing essential oils because I am allergic to lavender and some other calming oils) and the methods have no long term effect to reduce the excessive worrying, but we have now decided I should explore the possibility of a long term medicine to help me.
A week from now I have an appointment to officially diagnose and treat my anxiety with a real doctor. However I’m getting a little nervous about what the doctor will ask me (anxiety about having anxiety-yay). It’s just that I’ve been seeing my therapist for months and am very comfortable with her now, and I don’t know how the doctor will know what to do after one appointment. I know it might take a long time to get the right medicine or dosage, but I guess long story short what kind of questions were others asked when getting medicine for the first time so that I can be prepared. I’m often down play symptoms or severity with doctors because they make me nervous and this is too severe of an issue in my life to downplay.
Thank you for any help.
