Hi, I'm sorry you're having a difficult time, Ade.  I also have a mild case of GAD.  Thankfully klonopin is helping me a lot.
Could I ask how old you are, male or female, working or not?  It helps to get a picture.  My name is Dwight.
I am a young 55, male, working part time.  I work for a nonprofit and write sci fi novels.

I am one of those GADders who tends not to have too many physical symptoms.  At worst, I have constant dread,
and my sense of humor goes away, and I don't know how to use my free time.  But as I say, with klonopin, I'm doing much better.

Are you taking any medication?  What does your therapist say about your symptoms.  You can probably call her.  You don't have to
wait for your appointment.  That's what I do. 

Remember to do things to comfort yourself and treat yourself.  Do you have good friends you can talk to?  Remember to take 10 deep breaths
when you're stressed.  Yoga can help too.   I like books on ACT therapy.  Hope that helps.

Hi, Ade!

Welcome! :spineyes:

You're not going crazy. If you were, you wouldn't be aware of it!

The symptoms that I've experienced are that "fog head" feeling, feelings of "off balance", things looking "off". Sometimes I would get a numbness in the upper lip. Other times I'm just so wired up that my body feels super tense- hands will get real cold. The list goes on....but I'm doing good now.

Glad you're seeing a therapist. Are you on any meds to help? How long have you been going through GAD?

I'm a GAD/OCD with agora. Doing well on Prozac for all three, plus a benzo 1x daily to sleep, and as needed for break through anxiety if really needed.
