My anxiety makes me feel worried all the time, about everything. I take 3 different meds to control it. At the same time, I do psychotherapy, which brings me some relief, until another event triggers the anxiety, and I have to struggle to return back to a more normal level of anxiety. At its worst, I've had severe paranoia, once developing into full-blown psychosis with ideas of reference. I've had to be hospitalized numerous times. I hope the worst is behind me..View Thread
Hi. I'm new to this community. Looking for people to share experiences with psychotherapeutic treatment of anxiety disorders. I've been in therapy for over 3 years, and just learned this week the affect a nasty, critical, denigrating parental introject can have on everyday thoughts and feelings. Does anyone have any experience with this aspect of an anxiety disorder?View Thread
