multiple anxiety disorders

  • Anyone have any trick for how to stop overthinking? It's causing me to have really bad anxiety.

    In the past week I've been over-thinking even the smallest situations.
  • Best medication for social anxiety?

    I was wondering what the best medication for social anxiety for a sixteen year old would be? I have been on Zoloft before and it did not work too well.
  • Can someone have multiple anxiety disorders?

    Is possible that someone has more than one anxiety condition? Could this be treatable like any other single anxiety condition?
  • does anyone have a fear of it happening again?

    My ptsd comes from my grandpa dying. Alot of my anxiety is just in remembering how he suffered and changed. Some of my anxiety is just over the fact that it was disturbing, kind of like watching a disturbing movie scene and having it replay in your head. But part of it seems to be fearing that something similar will happen again. I'm confused as to whether this is ptsd or ocd, because I have that as well. However, I respond to specific everyday triggers with anxiety when I'm reminded of the past, vs ocd you respond because you are worried about the future, in general.
  • Has anybody tried The Linden Method?

    I've learned of this sort of Cure-All for anxiety, and anxiety related disorders called The Linden Method, has anyone tried this?
  • Has anyone been on Paxil for an extended time and then had it “poop out”? I’m on Zoloft now and it doesn’t seem to work nearly as well but it was horrible going through the switch so I’m worried to try a different one. I suffer all of the above panic disorders, OCD, generalized anxiety, panic attacks, etc. I know Paxil is a strong SSRI so I’m curious if anyone had a similar experience and found a

  • How do keep flashbacks under control? I never know when one will randomly pop up.

  • Isolated but looking to move forward

    OK so I wondered if anyone else has been affected by anxiety to the point that maybe referring to yourself as a shut in seemed to make sense? I have gotten to the point that I rarely go out for anything anymore, especially since my relationship of several years that gave me some strength has ended but my therapist is not very helpful and I am not sure how or actually even what the next step is. How do others move forward?
  • Medicated at highest dosages, completed cbt, no trauma, but panic attacks suddenly came back after a year without a problem?

    Ive been on prozac, clonazepam, lamotrigine and hydroxyzine for a year for my panic disorder. Theyve been working wonderfully, anxiety has been under control. i got my panic disorder caught judt in time before it turned into full blown agoraphobia. But suddenly, my panic attacks have come back. I feel like i did before the medication. Nothing signifigant has changed in my life - i did get rejected by someone i liked (nothing traumatic), became vegetarian and i switched from smoking to vaping, those are the only things that have changed since ive been on medication. my psychiatrist is stumped. he suggested it may be due to an underlying medical reason. does anyone have an idea of whats wrong with me? 22 female, not in school, and im quitting my part time job because of the panic attacks. i also have GAD and OCD that gets worse when my panic/anxiety gets up. i most definitely have agoraphobic tendencies but i can still function outside my home. also depression but i havent showed symptoms in years.
  • Obsessive skin picking and hair pulling

    I've struggled with OCD all my life, and part of that includes dermatillomania (skin picking) and trichtillomania (hair pulling). In the last 6 years or so, I've gotten infinitely worse with both, to the point of causing significant harm to myself on a regular basis. Typically I pick at my arms, shoulders, and scalp more than anywhere else, but any sort of bump, scab, or other irregularity anywhere on my skin will set me off. And with the hair pulling, no part of me is safe, except for my head (suprisingly) - ingrown hairs are the bane of my existence, combining both issues. The thing is, most of the time I have no idea I'm even doing it anymore until I've already drawn blood, and by then it's near impossible for me to stop. The few people I spend time with typically have to restrain my hands until the obsessive urges pass, which takes a long time. I'm covered in scars from digging at my skin and I'm really tired of it. Nothing I've tried to stop or even lessen the damage and frequency has helped, I always subconsciously find some workaround to satisfy the obsessions. Keeping my nails short and bandaging my fingertips, wearing long sleeves and hats to cover my most problematic areas, hiding my tweezers and pumice stones, none of that has been and be to slow me down. I take ativan for my anxiety and panic attacks, and even that doesn't settle me down with it. I've even tried acupuncture, aromatherapy, and hypnotherapy, but to no avail. I'm just at a complete loss on what to do. I hate that I'm hurting myself, and even more I hate that it upsets my loved ones when they see me stuck in the compulsive picking and pulling or see the damage from it. It doesn't even seem to just be triggered by stress/anxiety/anger/excitement or anything anymore, it just happens all the time. I'm desperate to stop it, and would love some suggestions on how to successfully combat this. Is this something I can even get control over?
