My name is sam. I have recently come to the conclusion that I suffer from GAD. I am 40yr old male and have had numerous mental health issues relating to depression and substance abuse, but as I drill down to root causes and conditions, I can't get past the anxiety. I have recently quit self-medicating with alcohol because I can clearly see that the relationship is going to get really bad in a very short period of time. Now I am stuck with myself and my anxiety. I have a script for Xanax and Prozac and it is helping, but I want to learn to manage my anxiety and get to the root of it, instead of treating the symptoms.
