Hello @Inkpot I'm so sorry to hear you're dealing with anxiety. And for so long without relief! Speaking only from my personal experience, it sounds more like a case of generalized anxiety disorder. Basically, that's anxiety that just won't go away. There are several ways of treating it. I'm not familiar with the ones that HopeFaith shared. For me, I had to seek medical assistance as they were so bad, the attacks were making day-to-day life unbearable. I have a history of this disorder, though, so my current treatment is different than prior treatment. In the past, it was a Klonopin prescription until the attacks went away. This time, it is a medication protocol I will take for the rest of my life as the disorder kept returning with more frequency than before. Part of this treatment is still Klonopin to help "bridge" the time between current suffering and the new protocol starting to work. The new protocol is working now, so I'm almost done weaning off of the Klonopin (you CANNOT stop that drug cold turkey). Meditation helps me, too, but wasn't enough on its own. Every individual is different, of course, and you must pick the treatment that works best for you. I would urge you to do something soon, though, as I understand the suffering you're experiencing and it can really wear you down after a while. Left to itself without some sort of treatment, at least in my experience, it only gets worse. At its worst for me, I was suicidal. Please don't let it get that far! You're in the right place for good support, which also helps. Be well and please keep us posted!
