Welcome to HW, I hope you find some support here. Your story certainly sounds like that of a lot of our members (me included!) I think it is wise to get back on track with meds and therapy, it can be scary to think we might have to stay on them long term, but really it is no different to someone with diabetes taking their insulin. It sounds like you know what you are talking about with "overly used worries"..we tend to think of that as stinkin thinkin' here!
When I was in my 20's I got through soooo many jobs I can't honestly remember them all. I got into a pattern of working well for about three months, then increased my meds due to anxiety, then would have a series of hugs attacks (and drink too much booze bad for me!) Then have to quit and go on disability for six months to get back to "normal"..then six months later I would decide to be superwoman again and go and get another highly stressed job. Argh! Repeat cycle! Can you see an pattern between your attacks and work? I'm not saying you are like me (god forbid) it was just a miserable way to live. I'd like to help anyone to not make my mistakes.
What meds where you on before? Sorry, being nosy..please let us know how you go.
strugglingbutstrongWelcome to HealingWell and the A & P forum. This is Kitt. You have received some great advice from the other members and I totally agree going back to therapy is a good idea.

Thts really gud advice as usual Skitt.
It is great that you have cut out the booze, especially if you are on an anti-depressant like zoloft (it can mean it doesn't work if you drink). It may seem like you are missing out for now, but in the long run, it will help you with this fight against anxiety. Please don't feel like you are depending on others, I am sure you are not, and you need the help, we all need help at some stage in our life. You may feel like giving up, but remember, this will pass, it always passes and you will be stronger for it. Stay strong, keep fighting and please stay with us.
You belong to the A & P family so never feel you are alone. We all have expereinced anxiety and panic and we still do. Remember, however, we have anxiety, it does not have us.
thanks kitt,and i will remain with you guys,without you i feel like the whole world is against me..and i am grateful for everyones advice and there own personal stories..i will check it every day and that is what meakes me feel better..
