I have always had mild anxiety, but have always been able to control it until January. Long story short: I had a job interview in January and I finally found out I got the job and now I am too nervous to start (in a few weeks). I wonder if I am making the right decision, I will be the youngest one in the office, what if I fail at it, what if I don't like it at all, etc.? It is not just the job either: I am afraid of getting older, think about getting married to my boyfriend soon/having kids one day, losing someone I love, etc. On top of this, I just developed social anxiety where I cannot even attend family events and just want to sleep and stay home.
I have to miss work sometimes because of my generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and thoughts taking over.
I started 5mg of Lexapro 9 days ago, but haven't had any successful results yet. I also do weekly acupuncture and daily meditation, but it hasn't been doing much.. My family is so supportive, but I know I am annoying them because it is all I ever talk about and dwell on and I can't help it. I feel like I am going crazy and I miss being my normal self.
Will this ever go away? What can I do to help?
