Stress mode stuck on
I think that is what my problem is. I've been under so much stress lately that now I'm stuck in stress mode and flight or fight mode and my brain just keeps dumping the chemicals for no reason! How can you get out of this loop?

i get the same thing and i am still trying to figure out how to stop it, i think the anti-depressents are working, they make me not stress out so much and i take kratom for anxiety.  also excercise and yoga help too.

hey,i went throught that for 6 months, thought i would never get out. i would fight it all day and than get up next day do it again, after 6 months i could not fight it no more and i hate meds but went and got klonopin, i cant take ssri so i started on .25 in am and .25 at night . wow what a difference it made it was just enought to get me back on my feet so i could get control again. my dr wanted me to take .5 three times a day but i didnt want to start on a high dose  so i cut it to .25 only twice a day and thats all i neded.  it really worked for me maybe you should ask for it and take a low dose see how it works for you. i was only on it three weeks than winged my self off for two weeks. even thought i was told didnt have to wing but i not like going off that kind of med cold turkey. wish you all the luck here to talk if need

Exactly how I feel. I am sooooo tired of it. So many things happened in a two year period and now I am stuck in that mode even when nothing is wrong.

Barbara, I have the same exact emotions exactly. I have been under an enormous amount of stress and now I am stuck in stress mode and can't get out. I don't know what to do. You have listed everything I feel. It is so scarey.
