I'm Dan. I've spent many years with GAD/Panic disorder. Most of those years were spent in chaos, but I forced myself to understand my symptoms as well as what triggers them and I have learned how to manage them. I'm here to learn and to be helpful wherever I can.

Welcome. How do you manage your symptoms if I may ask.
Hey, @Jolly. I used to have severe panic attacks, have been letting anxiety/social anxiety get the best of me these past couple of years but doing DBT therapy again, trying to get on top of it. I am on some older meds that actually work better for me than SSRIs or other classes. One is desiprimine (tricyclic antidepressant) and the other is klonopin (bento). Was put on them 35 years ago for panic attacks that had gotten so severe I couldn't go to school, etc. for a study they were doing at my college, and they worked within 2-3 months. Don't think I would have graduated or gone on to college w/o them, also had therapy w mixed results. I find DBT therapy the most useful, hands-on thing for me. Have also had some success w ketamine infusions, as the depression comes and goes still, and it really helped w anxiety for about 3 months (after 6 treatments over 6 weeks).

Are you getting professional help?

I see a therapist twice a month. This has really helped and should have sought help years ago. She has taught me a lot of good techniques which have really helped me. I work in mental health and no one has any idea how I feel so it was difficult to find someone I did not know. I have suffered GAD for as long as I can remember. It is so debilitating and stopped me from doing a lot of things for example holidays.
