New GAD member (Marine)
« on: December 02, 2013, 11:25:51 PM »
I'm an active duty Marine recently diagnosed with GAD. I found this site as I was trying to learn more about what I have. It's good to know that there are communities online like this, since I am new to the psychiatric world and have much to learn.

I've noticed in the past few years that I have been tense and on edge all the time (in a physical sense) even when there was no reason to be so. I hate not being the driver of a car that I'm in, I've become very afraid of the dark and I hyper focus on things that bother me or I am unsure about.  My doctor recently prescribed me Zoloft and I am hoping that it will help calm the tension. 

Once again, I am glad to have found this place

Hi, Elvis1 and welcome to the site.

You have come to the right place. Anxiety zone is about sharing experience and offering support.
Please find the forums/ sections you have interest in and feel free to post or start a new topic.
You might be interested that we also have a chat room for members over 18 years of age, who have made 3 meaningful posts.
By meaningful posts we generally consider posts that include more than a few words and contribute to the subject. Just a hint.  :winking0008:

With help of your meds and other support I hope you feel well really soon.

Nice to have you aboard!

As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
