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!

Welcome to the board man,

Happy belated birthday as well. You're in good hands here, feel free to join chat and post around.

How come you fear taking your medication?

Thank you! 

 I'm afraid of taking meds because I don't want to get addicted to Xanax and I'm always afraid of how the meds will make me feel.  So I'm just taking it one day at a time now.

I know what you mean man. I always fear judgement with taking mine. I also fear the medication taking over my mood. but they CAN be helpful. Just as your xanax would relieve you if you were to have a panic attack. I look at it like that, although I'm not sure on your dosage.

I'm slowly understanding that :)  I've got a .25mg dosage, nothing crazy.  I've taken it four times in the past month, so I think i'm good.
