SS: Glad to provide encouragement, and glad to see you provide encouragement to others. Maybe there is a greater purpose in all of this for both of us, despite the fact that I hate that we both have GAD. We can offer encouragement for those like us, or worse case, just let them know there are other ppl who have the same thing. When you know you are NOT alone with this emotional issue, it changes everything.
I will be monitoring your progress very closely, as I may switch from Nardil back to Emsam after 10-12 weeks. The best book I have ever read is "The Anxiety Workbook" by Edmund Bourne. Glance at it next time youre in a bookstore.
Yes, I think a med can take you to a 6-7 and then CBT can add another point or two or three.
