Good Morning,

Congratulations on the part time job. It is good to know you like to be around people.

Would you be a little more specific on the "horrible feeling in your stomach"?

That may help with the response you get from the members.  Thanks and remember that anxiety can cause just about any symptom but a little more info would be helpful.

I have a full time job and my p/a has never debilitated me to the point of not being able to work but it's still uncomfortable.
I am seriously considering buying a self help book that a lot of people here recommend. I relax myself through breathing and if I'm around my husband and friends (which is 75% of the time) I'm usually fine. Surround yourself with people that you are comfortable with and keep yourself busy.

I'm not sure if it's the same feeling, but I often wake up with what I call a sour stomach. I must have been having some anxiety thing going on while I was still sleeping, as far as I can tell. It usually goes away fairly quickly; if I'm sick for more than an hour these days it's pretty rare. This morning I woke up with it, incidentally. I've found that getting up and moving around helps. Sometimes even making the bed is enough to alleviate it. I'm religious the way I take my Klonopin, so I always wait until eight a.m., but since I'm up earlier these days I've thought about moving it up to seven.

Something to consider: if you're taking Xanax even once a day, you may consider asking your physician about switching to a longer-acting benzodiazepine such as Klonopin or Valium. There would be less risk of tolerance and you'd get the benefit of taking it at regular intervals and having it in your system at all times. If you stay at 1 mg or less per day, it shouldn't be that hard to discontinue should you decide to do so. Easier than the Xanax, anyway, from what I've read.
