Hi @Poppy234 I'm sorry that you are struggling. If anxiety is taking over your life then seeking help is a great first step. Is there anything in particular that you have anxiety about or is it just in general?

Hi
Yeah it's in general to be honest, I just seem to be struggling to control it at the moment

The GAD forum may be of use as well as the site search. I know these are basic questions but have you seen a doctor about it? Are you on medication?

Hi @Poppy234, I am sorry to hear you are struggling.

Have you looked into counselling/therapy? Spoken about your anxiety to a family member, a friend, or anyone you can trust?

Do you have a constant “butterfly” feeling in your stomach or is it on and off?

I am thinking of talking to a doctor and seeing what options I have to help

I do speak to my partner about it which helps and the butterfly feeling is on and off.

I have GAD. I take clonazepam and it really takes the edge off of the anxiety that I am feeling at the moment. Today as an example, I signed a rental agreement for me to rent a room in someone's house. I had suicidal thoughts and kept asking myself what did I just do? I took a clonazepam tablet (0.5 mg) and gave it a half-hour or so to work. It wasn't working so I took another tablet. That did the trick. Now the way I feel about the same situation is, "so what?" It really helps me to relax and stay calm.
