I’m so frustrated

Hello everybody! I’m new to this hoping this Will help. As I sit here with so much anxiety and anticipation of the next panic attack. I’m absolutely miserable. I’ve tried just about everything. I’m to the point where I can barley leave my house. Medication does not help bc the side effects are so bad. I do take my Xanax when it gets bad. Which I’m scared of as well. This all started about two months ago. I start therapy next week even bought a book. Does anyone have any success stories?! Any help would be awesome!!!❤️❤️❤️

My anxiety is probably not as bad as yours but I've noticed that even when I'm so anxious and I feel like I'm going to die, the next day I feel alright. I used to be anxious about the anxiety too, but now I've experienced and lived through it enough times that I'm not so scared of it anymore. Notice how the panic attacks happen but Always pass. This thought really helps me. All feelings will pass and can be replaced by better ones like joy, love, and ease. Try to be kind and patient with yourself. It really takes courage to battle anxiety.

Thank u so much! I notice that does help. I just have developed this sensation in my mouth that scares me. I tell myself it due to anxiety! Thank u for ur support I really need it right now!❤️❤️❤️

Hi kdub welcome to the group you've done the right thing by going yo your doctor but try and persevere with the meds they can take 2/3 months to start working and any side effect start to get lesser! Don't try and self medicate as this will not work if the side effects are bad go back to your doctor and he will either change the dose or change the medication! Good luck with the therapy and I hope it helps take care david 💐💐

Thank u! Celtic27 I’m just very sensitive to medication. I just think I need support at this point. Meds have just made me so sick in the past.
