is this just how it's going to be? anxiety

Posted by llurpsienoodle on March 5, 2008, at 7:37:02

no matter what I do I cannot find a way to resolve my anxiety. Sure, there is temporary relief, but every morning, between the time of 8 to noon there is this dull dread, occasionally crescendoing to panic. What should I do?

I've tried journalling my worries with limited success. I don't know what I'm anxious about, or else I would talk to T about it.

I don't know why medication won't work. It makes me sleepy, not less anxious (tried cymbalta for this, xanax, klonopin). Every morning just the same old tired routine. I cut out all my caffeine. It helped a little bit.

I've tried meditation and guided relaxation, but slowly that has become associated in my mind with increased anxiety.

I'm afraid of being late for my day's appointments, for work, for life.

I'm afraid to leave the house.

I'm afraid to stay at home.
