I agree, it makes zero sense whatsoever and it is no fun at all. I’ve had the same thoughts about loving the “right way.” and you are right. I hope the writing thing helps! I keep a little pocket notebook in my purse and one on my bedside table (for before trying to sleep).

I have a general anxiety disorder, I get panic attacks mainly, but when I have one it throws me off for a week or two and I feel anxious about everything. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I aren’t engaged yet, but we’re going to pick a ring this weekend, and have already started planning the wedding. Thinking about all the things I have to do definitley makes my anxiety get high. Usually just talking to Boyfriend or Best Friend about it helps settle me, because he is a very calm and easygoing person, he doesn’t really understand my anxieties, but he sure is excellent at making me feel better. The best thing aside from that is exercise. If I’m feeling really anxious I go to yoga, or for a long run, or swim, and it really helps me calm down. I found that therapy actually made me more anxious! I prefer to deal with it on my own. I do have Prozac for when I have really bad panic attacks, but I have only taken it once since I was diagnosed.

@aquarius_91: i have an anxiety disorder and it is awful. i started getting panick attacks multiple times a day and had no choice but to take xanax multiple times to help it. i’ve almost gone to the hospital several times because i LITERALLY thought i was dying. even when i KNEW what was happening with me. i had no choice but to go to my doctor and i started on zoloft. i’m not one to medicate but i honestly had no other options left. i’ve been on it for over a year now and have only had to take xanax a couple of times. it is such a relief to not feel the way i used to. i haven’t noticed any side effects. i’m tired some but i think that is just me, haha.
good luck! i know how horrible it is.
