Hello, I am new here and in need of some support from others who suffer CONSTANTLY with anxiety. I worry about not having something concrete to worry about. I worry over things that will never occur but my mis-wired brain grabs hold of anything that is going to go wrong in my life.
I feel helpless. I am on no psych meds due to severe allergic reactions to Bipolar 1 meds of Abilify and Seraqual (sp). I believe my Dr. has the wrong diagnosis. I am NOT bipolar, I have severe general anxiety disorder.
Is there anyone out there who has attempted to try Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)? How has it worked for you? Everything I research claim this is THE BEST therapy out there. So I have begun a CBT workbook on my own. I need to do something to help myself and try to eliminate the drugs that plague me with so many terrible side effects.
I have trouble sleeping and I can't re-fill my Restoril until June 1.
Any advice, support, suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I am tired of fighting this disease alone.
thank you, Pat
