Hi, I haven’t been diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder yet but am confident I have it. I am anxious all of the time, even when at home for literally no reason at all. Was just wondering if this is the case for You guys as well?

And also, how is life on medications, does it help a great deal?

Thank you

Hi @M_T and welcome to the forum.

I am sorry that you are struggling with anxiety.
I’ve been dealing with anxiety since 2004. Last October, I had the worst anxiety ever. I was anxious day and night to the point I lost over 18 pounds in one month because my anxiety was making deal nauseous and couldn’t eat.

After a whole month and 3 visits to the ER, I couldn’t get my fears under control. I decided to take medications for the first time and I wish I did sooner. It’s been an amazing experience. I am taking Escitalopram and it had saved my life.

I hope you feel better soon.
