Living with GAD is like having to have your mind exercise for 24 hours a day 7 days a week… it’s very draining… I feel as if though I can never properly rest…. I can never properly take a break and just be worry free…. there’s something that always worries me.. always… and it’s very hard.. I take lexapro but it never seems to help… I have this book for GAD… I’m going to start reading it and I will share with you guys soon on what I found. For us with anxiety, saying things like “don’t worry” or “calm down” will not help us… it’s very complex it’s like our minds are just stubborn enough to say we have to worry… it’s a vicious cycle… everyday I deal with this and it’s so tough and in severe situations if I’m under a lot of stress I can actually have panic attacks… I bring this up a lot to my friends because I just think that awareness is very important and I mean I don’t think that everybody who doesn’t have this disorder knows how much of a pain in the ass it can actually be to us who wanna live as relaxed as possible… or any anxiety disorder tbh I don’t think that everybody who does not have anxiety knows how hard it is for us to live a happy and relaxed life… it’s hard because I want to be calm and relaxed but then I worry and it’s so hard to stop worrying… it’s like my mind is somehow doing something it’s not supposed to when given stressful situations… life is tough with anxiety and I’ve been through so much… it’s so draining sometimes I feel so tired and just exhausted especially with college… lexapro doesn’t do shit. but I will start reading this book and hopefully I can get some tips… thanks for reading guys
Let us know how it goes
