For the past few months I have been feeling very anxious and I cry ALOT. I have never experienced this before. I finally went to the doctor and he said I am suffering from anxiety. My life is good right now so I am not sure why this is happening to me. It all started when my daughter started HS which was a big step for her since we live in a small town and fold into a large district. I was very nervous for her since it would be a huge transition with new kids. She plays sports and knew some of them. She also has a new boyfriend which happens to be my best friends son who she has known since she was 4. I am very worried about
that because of our friendship. He treats her well for 14 year olds but some things are not just right and I worry about
her getting hurt. It is all 14 year old stuff that I know she will experience but since it is with him I am obsessing over it. I have explained that to her and she is very good at keeping me up to date so I don't worry too much but she has been upset a couple of times and believe me...I lost sleep over it. I haven't been sleeping well...I have two other children that I feel I am not giving them enough attention because all I worry is about
this situation. When I see things are good with her there is no anxiety but today is Wednesday and now it will start...will they see each other over the weekend...will she be ok...will they break up (no signs of it but I think about
it all the time). I feel so stupid for thinking like this. My older daughter has been dating for a few years and NEVER did I feel like this. My dr prescribed Klonopin and it worked immediately....anxiety gone...stopped crying...actually could eat a meal...BUT it makes me so tired. I didn't take it today and the anxiety is there. I am going to try to take it before bed so that I can sleep more than 4 hours. Is this all normal for anxiety? Has anyone else felt this way?
I just put a title to your post is all
