In the last few days I have responded 2 a couple postings of other members, but I haven't posted anything. I am 46 & was diagnosed Bipolar 2...BPD-traits, extreme Major Anxiety Disorder & ptsd.
My anxiety is so over-the-top currently. Nothing seems 2 be working...I am currently in DBT-Outpatient Program & am Learning lots of skills. However, my anxiety is making me miserable. The only anxiety meds I have is Hydroxyzine which I'm supposed 2 take them @ bedtime. So I don't have any meds that can be taken @ the onset or during a anxiety attack. There has been a few times in the last 3-months that I thought about going 2 the emergency room but it is so expensive, & I don't know exactly if they could do anything 2 help.
When I'm having one (anxiety) I struggle 2 breathe normally. It feels like I can't catch my breath...Its hard 2 explain it. I absolutely cannot sit still, all my muscles seem 2 tense up a lot. Sometimes I sweat or get cold. Just a few symptoms.
Does anyone take anxiety meds that really work quickly? Does anyone struggle with BAD anxiety? If so, what symptoms do U have?
