To cope with this I like to analyse situations in my head before I do them. Sometimes I see small details and they get to me really deeply.

Paranoia or Anxiety?

My paranoia started when I was a child, when my father forced me to go to the theaters and watch horror movies. I still remember the horror scenes, and the times I was crying and laying in the seat so it would block my view from the screen because once I see the image, it is stuck in my brain forever. My brain is like a sponge, once I see it, it’s there forever....

I have never had it diagnosed, I am too ashamed and fearful of being ‘branded’. But I just don’t see what else it could be. I believe...

Fear of Taking Medicine

I have PTSD and I’m going through perimenopause, and my anxiety level has hit the roof. I’ve developed some phobias, over the last few years, and decided to go back on a low dose of amitriptyline (25mg) which I got from my doctor, as well as clonazepam (.5 mg up to 2x daily) for panic. I’ve taken these before and know that they work, and do not have the side-effects that other medications do...
