Hi @jebajones. Welcome to Connect! That’s such a fantastic question and a great discussion to start. I too have anxiety sometimes and find that when I don’t let it debilitate me, i’m able to channel it into getting things done. Tagging @mlemieux, @twptrustrek, @royal, @jbyrd and @martid who I think might like to join in on the discussion!

I know what you mean. I depend on klonopin in the morning to get me
through. My doctor just gave me extra in case I need it. I have been on it
for years and it helps. I tried getting off it recently and I had to get
back on it,

It’s hard to figure ways to use your anxiety productively. I have social
and general anxiety. I have a lot of trouble being around people even
family. I worry for months about upcoming events like Christmas.

If anyone has any help pls let us know. I cannot afford a therapist.

Thanks,

I’ve Gen.anxiety disorder.But,yes,it can be hard 2 cope with!Good,your Drs.underatanding.

Seek group support then. Read independently. A good Cognitive Behavioral
aproach is DIALECTICAL BEHAVIORAL THERAPY. But there are others, like
desensitization therapy.

Not ever okay just to solely rely on a benzodiazepine.
