Hi there, I'm 30 years old and have anxiety for as long as I can remember. Since I was 6, I've had psoriasis that is aggravated by anxiety. I've also had some traumatic events in my life that have exacerbated my anxiety.
A few days after my 30th birthday (very recently), I had a panic attack with effects that lasted for several days. I've been prescribed Xanax and have only taken it four times because I'm afraid to take it. I've been having issues with depersonalization since then and am in the process of finding a psychiatrist/psychologist/counselor.
I'm having a hard time even writing this post but I am trying to find a way to deal with all of this because I'm sick of it all. It's starting to affect my job and I'm freaked out.
Thank you for reading!
