Ptsd and Gad

Hello I am 43 years old and I was told that I am clinically depressed i also suffer with gad. I have become a hermit. I hate being in large crowds and sweat profusely when someone is standing close to me or behind me. I am easily aggitated. My doctor prescribed buspar but I don't think it's working. Is anyone else experiencing this


I do. I suffer from anthropophobia badly. I have schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder, bipolar disorder, and anxiety disorder. I am a hermit too. I lock myself in my apartment all the time. I hope I get better. I want a life someday. So I can empathize. Take care. I hope you find relief quickly.
