Ok, thanks for the information.
So, it sounds like you were involved in group therapy. I completely understand feeling depressed and overwhelmed at everyone's stories. I typically recommend that someone with your level of anxiety attend individual therapy for a while. With the right therapist you should learn some coping skills, to help you deal with the anxiety. It won't make the anxiety disappear, but it will help you be able to manage it so that you can at least be around other people. Once you are able to be around other people and not experience such high anxiety, then you might find a group more helpful.
Exercise is a great idea. So, be sure to continue that, as it keeps your endorphins up and will help you throughout the day.
Another thing that has been very helpful for my clients, is Mindfulness Based Stress
Reduction. There are some therapists who use aspects of this in their practice. But, you can also find people who teach MBSR who are not therapists. But, they have been trained to provide MBSR. This does occur in a group setting. However, you rarely (although occasionally) hear stories about what everyone else is going through. Instead, you spend each meeting learning new skills for reducing anxiety, and managing the things that happen in our lives that lead to this anxiety.
It's really beyond the scope of this discussion board, but you might also want to consider things that have happened in your past. If you have a trauma history, or have experienced any type of abuse in the past, it could be contributing to your current anxiety. If that is the case, individual therapy with a therapist who specializes in treating trauma victims, or using trauma informed care, can be extremely beneficial.
So, don't change any of your medications without discussing it with your medical doctor. But, add
in any (or all) of the things that I have mentioned above, and I believe that it will help. Medication rarely solves the problem unless you use it in combination with some other form of treatment.
Best of luck, and let me know if you have any additional questions.
