    I was diagnosed with GAD in the past, but it seems to be fairly situational. I've done a lot of work in the last two years and this fall will mark 2 years since I've had a panic attack, and 2 years since it seriously affected my life, and 1 year since I've been off meds.

    :D

    I've been diagnosed with Social Phobia/Social Anxiety Disorder. Right off the bat, I stated that I didn't want drugs. I have a feeling that this irritated my psychiatrist quite a bit, as we spent almost half the first session arguing about the ethics of prescription drugs, especially as applied to children as young as 6. Plus I didn't really feel comfortable opening up to her, and overall it wasn't really helping me, so I just stopped going after about 5 sessions.

    I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder when I was 11 or 12. Since then, I have been on various anti-depressant/anti-anxiety drugs. I tried Paxil and Zoloft when I was younger and those two were evil. I felt like a total zombie while on them and they did nothing for my anxiety or depression.

    Right now, I am seeing a psychiatrist who seems to be pretty good in her field. She doesn't want to just hand me drugs to shut me up. She is working with me on CBT. We'll see how that goes. Within the past several months, I have tried so many drugs that I have lost track of. But currently I am on Wellbutrin, Valproic Acid, Olanzapine, and Clonazepam, and I take Lorazepam when I am particularly stressed. Surprisingly, I don't feel like a zombie at all when I am on all of this medication, so I am thankful for that. The only thing is that I have this fear now that if I don't take a benzodiazepine before school or work that I will become overwhelmed. I feel like I need it and I'm afraid that this will turn into an addiction.

    You had this problem when you were 6 or was it just part of the discussion for some other reason?

    That's what I was talking about earlier, that perhaps the pills make you feel like the fix has to come from outside. But if your therapist is in to CBT she probably has some plan forward. And remember that loads of people get through this and end up without medication.

    Nah. I had a panic attack when I was 11, but it scared me into not worrying about things any more, if that makes any sense!
