In reply to GAD without worry or fear, posted by linkadge on November 6, 2017, at 17:03:11

I have absolutely had the same experience. I am not a worrier at all - very much a "what me worry", "things will work out one way or another" kind of person. I have no phobias, I don't dwell on negatives. I don't often have anxiety problems, but when I do, they completely derail me. The symptoms are entirely physical. My heart won't stop racing, I feel nauseous. I once lost 15 pounds in a month when I was in the throes of a virtually endless anxiety attack. My psychiatrist didn't want to prescribe a benzo because I've had a history of addiction, but my DBT therapist - who at first was all - let's look at the negative thoughts - finally gave up on trying to figure out emotional causes and called my psychiatrist, telling him I needed a benzo to control the anxiety.

As it turned out, just a few days on a low dose of xanax put my body back in a normal state and the anxiety went away.

I realize I was lucky here. I don't suffer from chronic anxiety.
