Yep. I push myself way too hard and expect too much, and beat myself up a good bit when I fail.

Jes' sayin'.

I take 100 mg of Zoloft, and a sleep med as well (for the fibro... I have really bad sleep disturbances). I stay busy. I exercise.

I also learned a nifty saying: If you cannot control or do anything about it, don't carry it around with you.

I have had anxiety problems all my life but the last 12 or 13 yrs it has been horrible at times and this is one of those times. I have had a lot of stress going on in my life which doesn't help any. I haven't been sleeping well either and I don't know if that can add to it or not.
I take xanax and I really don't know what my life would be like without it. The busier I am and the more distracted the better.
I hope you can get some help for this.
luv and hugs
