I have had anxiety for as long as i can remember. At least 18 years. It caused me to drop out of school, lose jobs, it has ruined every relationship i have been in. I feel like it is ruining my life. I get so anxious that i cant eat or sleep and constantly worry about everything. I dont like to get attached to someone because i know i will ruin it because of my overwhelming anxiety. I have finally decided to see a doctor about it getting a prescription for something. I considered counselling, but i feel like that would not work for me. I dont want to talk to someone about it, i just want it gone or at least manageable. I have read and watched videos on the different medicines that people have tried, Xanax, Zoloft etc. I dont know which would be best for me. I cant wait 4 weeks for something to start working, i need something that works fast so when i have an attack i can get immediate relief. Ive never gone to a doctor about it, or anything else aside from a physical. What questions do they ask? Does any PCP/GP have the ability to prescribe medication for anxiety?
