Hey guys, I think I've always had somewhat of a hypervigilant personality, but lately it's starting to turn into full-blown paranoia I think. Add to that a healthy plate of social anxiety and I'm a wreck.
My sleep sucks because my mind is going 100mph about "what about this, what about that", I tried to get in the hot tub to relax last night and found that I was more freaked about thinking I saw flashlight light and people were coming to get me.
I'm not falling off the deep edge, but I think I'm hitting up against paranoia to the point where it's impactiing my life. I'm leaving for a trip soon and I think that's making things worse.
So, I called my doc and have an appointment - I'm thinking I'll get a script for something, but I'm wondering if you guys that have tried a number of benzos, etc. could give me some ideas about which ones were effective, which ones might do the job for the social anxiety, etc. I've heard Klonopin for SA is good, but I don't know if that would be a general anxiety thing too?
Anyhow, thanks for any thoughts or ideas. The lowest side-effect one would be my choice, obviously.
