I can't seem to kick this anxiety lately. I've always struggled with it, and I have things that work and things that don't, but lately I seem to be a big ball of anxiety all the time, especially this week I have off work for Thanksgiving break. I have a few things this week that cause me stress, but all of it is connected to good things and shouldn't be throwing me like they are. I am having so much anxiety that I just woke up and already had to take a rescue med.
I'm feeling discouraged because I'm wondering if I should just get back on antidepressants for my anxiety. The upside is it helps. The downside is, my job is in the creative arts and I can't do it for the whole time I'm on the meds because it shuts off my creative brain. Also, I am going through an awakening and I don't want to shut off that process by medicating. I really can't stand another day like this, though. I want my life back.
Anyone have any insight or advise?
