I have been told I have general anxiety disorder for over 10 years and really have not done much. When I exercise alot I feel better so I assume that helps. I have read waht it says about it and I do not worry exessively, it does not interfere with my job, but lately in the last 3 years, I can tell i am changing.
My first husband of 31 years died suddently, my son got married to a horror of a wormen 8 months after that, which ended in divorce a terrilbe on invlovling police, in only 6 months and seh had a child which I loved dearly,they left, then I meet a new man, whom I love dearly, but it was too soon, we got married an dhave been marreid now for 2 years, but lately it seems along with menopause and weight gain and changes I m having a terrible time. I seem to get major headahces, stiff muscles, cna't sleep, easily aggitated, high blood pressrue and now high cholestrol, been treated for thryoid by a dr now been told to go off by anotehr one, have rheumatoid arthritis, was just givien lorazapem .025 two times day, first ocupel days okay but I noticed when it wore off i had major anixety worse, adn then by day 5 it made me feel like i wanted to end it all, so went off and had horrilbe withdrwal afte ronly 5 days.
I guess my quesiton is how do you deal with all this? I have tired therapy but I am a great actor!!
I think I am over whlemed now, I see too many drs, don't trust any of them, secodn guess all ofthem and i know taht is not good. I am afirad i am headed for a break down.
My leg musles ache all the tme, I sleep at nigth but get woken up at least 3 times a night by whinning dogs, I have tried it all for them, i am at my wits end. can you have gad and not have it totally interfer ewith life> talking seems to be better, exercise seems to help alot, but with the ra it is had to do. I react so bad to drugs, I am goign to start accuptunre, but tha twill freak me out with the needles but better than takign meds!!
Any ideas, support, would be wonderful
