No, this is not how it's going to be. This is temporary and it is just anxiety, nothing more. The dread is most likely not rational.

Now, having said that - God I would rather be in my bed depressed than anxious. It's such a nasty nasty feeling.

I've never had much luck with meditation or relaxation.

I have had some luck with distraction techniques to stave off panic: counting backward from 1000 by 7's, mentally visualizing and naming all of the animals' enclosures at the sanctuary where I volunteer, calling someone, and singing (yes singing - it is actually the most efficacious for me). But sometimes nothing works.

I just recently started on buspar. While I won't say that I am as happy as a hindu cow, it is helping.

Good luck llurpsie, stay safe
