My name is Sherri and I am 48 years old.
I have had generalised anxiety disorder since I was in my early teens. I have been successful at keeping it under control until this past year. I own a business that provides 24/7 care to the elderly. I was alright until my dear friend of 28 years passed away last July. During that time I was also diagnosed with a health problem which is not getting any better, sadly. Since then my business has been struggling. I decided it would be in my best interest to sell the business. Fortunately, I have two people in the process of purchasing it. I know it has to be done and I'm going through all the formalities if paperwork. However, I started having multiple anxiety attacks with this change. My head and my mind are exhausted from this and I just want to curl up in a corner and die. I'm scared and I will not put myself back on an anti anxiety pill. I was tapered off clonezapam several years ago and it was a very frightening experience. Does anyone have any suggestions to make this transition not so horridly painful right now?
