    Intrusive thoughts are a big part of anxiety. If you mean can we be how we were before anxiety- if its long term then no I don't think so. We can be different and feel better which I think is all we can hope for

      Actually changing yourself from this like feeling different can work out good cuz your minds like this isn't the person who used to get anxiety will make the brain confused and maybe change for the good I hope cuz I hope that's what happening to me cuz I do not feel the same way I did before but I still am waiting for my anxiety to go away but yes change is good we can be different and feel good at the same time

    what kind of intrusive thoughts do you get?

    everyone has some form of intrusive tthoughts at times 9f stress and illness. they are a problem if they put you or others at risk? if not challenge the thoughts. I do it all the time. general intrusive thoughts often stem from our core beliefs and affirm them in a negative way,  like lighting the fire of what we dont like about ourselves.

Intrusive thoughts are part of anxiety, so seeing a Dr to be referred to psychology will probably be the best way forward. Crisis teams are usually staffed by psychiatric nurses, they offer no therapy and cannot prescribe

    UR doses will adjust and sometime after two weeks the dose is increased after initial dose u DONOT have a reaction of any kind to. These drugs control the serotonin uptake in the brain and take a few weeks to level out in UR system.
