It has been a little while since I've posted on this board. My anxiety has become so bad that it has basically consumed my life. It seems like it is specifically caused by work and the terrible work environment that I come to every day. I can't concentrate and I can't seem to find anything to calm myself down. I am currently participating in an intensive outpatient therapy program - which is three nights a week, for three hours each night, and combines group talk therapy with education and coping skills. We also see a psychiatrist once a week - he currently has me on Effexor (150 mg) and Tranxene. Nothing seems to calm the anxiety though... It is becoming so hard to function and I'm scared of ultimately losing my job.
Any kind words would help or some advice on some coping skills or medications that have worked for you. My aunt is my main support (or as group would say "life line") and she is out of town right now... I miss her so much and am really having trouble coping.
Thank you in advance for your help and I hope that everyone is doing well
