I was wondering if anyone here had any experience getting medication for panic attacks through Medicare or something similar. I have Medicare and my regular doctor prescribed me buspirone, but I have terrible anxiety about flying and am desperate for a benzo or something of the sort to have in case I have another awful panic attack on the plane. I also went to a behavioral therapist through Medicare (who can’t prescribe me anything) and she says it is very unlikely that my doctor will give me anything like a benzo. I talked with my doctor and he said he would prescribe me something, even if it’s just a couple pills, right before my flight. He wouldn’t tell me what my options were. I was wondering if anyone else has been prescribed anything for panic attacks through a Medicare doctor and what they prescribed! I’m worried he thinks I’m just a poor drug addict and won’t give me something strong enough to help. Thanks so much!
Is this even an anxiety attack? Sometimes I’ll feel insanely overwhelmed for absolutely no reason and I’ll just start sobbing and can’t stop, but don’t really have physical symptoms. Just INTENSE anxiety and emotional responses. Are these attacks?
I am on the verge of a massive anxiety break at work. I have taken my meds but they aren't seeming to help. I need to leave this place because it is so triggering but cant find somwthung fast enough and have no vacation or sick time left.
not sure if this question makes much sense but i’ll explain. my anxiety is centered a lot around the fear of developing other mental illnesses or serious physical health problems. it usually starts with reading up on someone who lets say suffers from bpd, schizophrenia, etc. and then the thought “what if i’m developing these disorders?” pops up in my head, then its followed by me relating a lot of the things i do, feel or think about to the illness i become fixated on; it’ll take me a while to actually convince myself that i don’t have ____ disorder but my anxiety can make it feel so real and even creates symptoms that could feel similar to what people who actually have the illness experience. its honestly exhausting, and not sure if i made this any more confusing but i just wish my brain could just let me relax for once.
I'm really scared. Since I got back from vacation I haven't slept at all. I only slept one day for 10 hours after taking Xanax. I don't take that everyday and I tried Benadryl and melatonin and it hasn't done anything. Im afraid I'm going to die soon. I have a sleep doctor appt on Monday the 22nd but I feel like I won't last till then. I don't know what to do. Should I go to the hospital. I'm scared of drugs and last time I went there with a headache I had some allergic reaction and they just added Benadryl to stop it. I was terrified. I've always been terrified of drugs. At first I wasn't really tired because of the time difference I don't know but then I started becoming really irritable and tired and really wanted to sleep. I even exercised and it didn't help me sleep. Ive been trying hard to do things but it's so hard when you're so damn exhausted. My head just keeps buzzing and I'm having all kinds of symptoms like palpitations shortness of breath and dizziness. I thought it was all related to blood pressure but it's definitely from lack of sleep. I can't tell sometimes if my minds racing or if I just can't sleep and it wanders. Ive tried so hard to sleep and this is freaking me out. I'm afraid I'm gonna die. What do you think I should do?
As a child, I had no real safe place. I was bullied at school and yelled at when I was home. My mother was very harsh on me and my stepfather never really was involved. My mother suffers from (undiagnosed) anxiety, depression, and possibly bipolar disorder.
As a 19 year old male, I feel like I am worthless. My confidence was never built, I dropped out of college, I am (undiagnosed) depressed, very anxious and have constant suicidal thoughts. I feel as if my voice is weak, as if it isn't something I control but something I have to force out. I never defend myself out of fear that I will lose something when I do.
An example would be when I moved out for a year. I had a roommate who was a good friend of mine. Quickly, the apartment became a mess. He never walked his dog and let it go all over the carpet flooring. I was afraid that if I spoke up, he would just not pay rent and leave me. Another example would be my girlfriend. I sometimes wish I could have some space but I feel as if I am asking for too much and that I have my boyfriend "duties" to do, otherwise she would leave me and I fear I might never find anyone again. I know that sounds irrational but I am very awkward, I am not funny or talented, etc.
I am suffering from a porn addiction (currently about 3 weeks clean), which has affected my sex life heavily. I cant get fully hard and what I can get is enough but nowhere near was a 19 year old should be putting out. I feel as if i am an actor and I am trying my best to play the role of characters I could never be. I wish I could be social, I wish my parents knew how much I am hurt but theyd push it aside, probably bring up THEIR problems in an attempt to relate, etc. I wish I wasnt like this. I wish I was normal. I wouldnt care if I was an asshole, at least an asshole can be dependable and stand for what they believe in, but I am a pussy. Thats the truth.
I don't know what to do. I feel as if I will never be able to fill the "role". I feel too self aware but oblivious. I wish I could be artistic, but I am a mess. I hope I die, but only because I am afraid things wont get better.
When I'm in this state of stress, I feel like I fumble and forget things i've done before. Obviously I remember later but I panic and think I'm being judged for how I'm doing something, especially at work. I feel like I'm dumb and can't do anything right. I don't know what triggered this because before now I've been fine
Hi, for some reason I just cannot fathom that another person actually likes me. Sometimes I feel it. But it feels like I’m always losing touch with that secure feeling that this person likes me. I think whenever there’s some slight tension, like if she’s having a bad day, or if she wants to spend time alone, that she must not want to be with me. I try not to pry into it too much because it feels selfish and too clingy. I play it cool but on the inside it tears me apart. It makes me feel like I’m just not ready to be with somebody if I get so insecure over stuff like this. Any advice?
