I have , from what I can recall, been experiencing anxiety
from a very early age. I am 39 yo and in the past 4 years have had anxiety and panic
attacks on daily basis, sometimes what would seem all day long.
What I experience most is;
outer-body sensations almost as if I am listening to myself speak from the outside in
Generally a sense on non-wellbeing , like something bad is destined to happen
Feeling of losing control
I have in the past been diagnosed with anxiety disorder and have tried Prozac ( no success ), Paxil and Zoloft. I have had some success with the later two , but have not taken either in over a decade. I did
also have Xanax on an as needed basis, but really dont like to take any kinds of pills.
I am a professional corporate captain, employed operating large motor yachts world wide and am about to take off for Europe again in a few weeks and want to try to get a handle on this so I might be able to start to enjoy my life again.
Any ideas on new Meds with little of no side effects or perhaps a holistic approach to this .. ??
