Hi, i am 30 yrs old. and have been struggling with panic disorder and social anxiety probably since I have been in kindergarten. I was just recently diagnosed, due to my condition worsening ever since my mother n law moved in right behind us. I cannot take any medication until I have my baby in May. But I live everyday in fear of being judged, and being disliked by my mother n law. And we just recently had our first disagreement,which has intensified my negative thoughts. I can barely breathe all day everyday. Everything I do shes on my mind. I just need her approval, and I feel like i am constantly begging for it. And I want to think Im not being judged, but im way to afraid to even talk to her about it. I have told her my diagnoses,but she seems to not be interested. Any ideas or suggestions on whats healthy and natural that i can take or even drink to help settle my mind? I just want this to go away!!View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I really hope my psychiatrist will give me something. When she diagnosed me she recommended therapy only until my baby is born. Maybe I need to explain to her how bad its effecting me. I cannot see myself going on for 2 more months like this. I am not sure of the types of medication that are available for this. I have only taken xanax in the past for anxiety. But I know I need something long term. So glad i finally have an explanation for my negative thinking all my life. I thought it was just ME. Again thank you for your reply.View Thread
