Go to the health food/vitamin sttore and get some Taurine, preferably on an empty stomach. Take 1000 mg. If you need to, take 2000 mg. See how that helps. It sure does me.
Also, it sounds weird, but real cold showers can help some people.

turn on some relaxing music & take a hot bath--usually soothes my soul/nerves.... peace out!

Hello and welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum.

If you have the Valium and it has been prescribed by your physician I would use it at the larger dose rather then the "small dose " if a larger dose is ordered.

Anxiety and worry get worse when you feel powerless and alone, but there is strength in numbers. Focus on building a strong support system. The more connected you are to other people, the less vulnerable you’ll feel. If you start to feel overwhelmed with worry, call a trusted family member or friend. Just talking out loud about your worries can make them seem less threatening. Come here and post your fears as just getting them down in writing helps many people to feel better.
Relaxation exercises are also good for occupying mental capacity. Relaxation exercises are techniques to relax muscles and relieve tension by using controlled breathing and muscle flexing. They usually involve sitting down in a comfortable chair, closing your eyes and systematically tensing and relaxing different muscle groups in your body, usually starting with the legs and feet.

Again a warm welcome,

Kitt
