    Hey, how did you go about saying all this to the doc? I'm really embarassed, but know that I have to do something about my anxiety, but don't really know how to put it :s
    TBH, I litrally made the appointment at 5:00pm, and I said it was an emergency. Luckily they must've had a cancellation, because he was ready to see me at 5:50!

    He must've checked my medical history on the system before I went in (most docotors have a wuick look on their screen a minuteor so before seeng the patient).

    I've ben prescribed prozac before, but was too scared to take it, he said that''s fine and put me on citalopram...

    I then told him im having a heart attack and he said I can take some valium, but will only give me 6, he said its "just a short bang", and that's why he only gave me 6..he said it will help me sleep...

    The appointment was only 10 mintues long...I suspect that as it was the end of the day, he wanted to get th hell out of there...

    This is why I was a little suspect (also he is not my USUAL doctor) and asked what it would be like...

    Oh okay, oh i was going to go in and ask for an appointment today! till I relaised that it was half 6 and they would probably be shut...
    I was prescribed something (betablockers? ) a few months ago but that was at a walk in doctors, so i don't know if my GP will know about it. Anyways they did nothing for me, so I'm slighlty sceptical as to whether I'm expecting too much, or for there to be some "magical cure" lol
    Can you let me know how it goes/how you feel?

    If you don't mind me asking, when/how do you get your anxiety? Is it certain situations? Like are you fine at home? Or is it when you're put in crowded quiet areas etc that kinda thing?

    I get it when mixing with people I don't know. I also get it when in crowds of people I don't know, so I used to remedy this by getting ridiculously drunk whilst out, but I can't/won't drink any more, and I HATE being stoned outside of my "comfort zone" because it just seems to make it worse.

    I know you didn't ask me, but **** it, I thought I'd throw in my experiences as well

    Nah thanks for sharing For me I have no issues with meeting new people, crowds, gigs,clubs etc. It's just when I'm in a dead silent palce like an exam, or lecture, or train (lol) with other people there, i HATE it, even though there is no logical reason for me to do so.. :/
    I guess I should just talk this through with the GP but I feel so silly talking about it :s

    I should probably talk to someone about my social anxiety and paranoia issues, but laziness combined with total apathy regarding talking to anyone about that stuff has always put me off :teehee:

    Gigs I'm usually fine at, but I can't really do pubs or clubs any more, which kinda sucks for my mates who want to go out drinking with me. Silence I can deal with, but sometimes I'd rather be without my thoughts... they can be incredibly haunting and disturbing sometimes. I swear there's something wrong with me

    Yeah, I think that when it gets to the point where it's affecting your every day life, you have to do something about it...
    So basically tommorrow morning, ring up and book to see your GP Imagine being able to go out, and feeling happy and having fun! I should really take my advice and do the same thing tommorrow myself haha!
    How long have you realised this had been happening? With me I just though it would go away, as I've never had anything like it before, but (since october) it hasn't and i'm fed up of feeling like there's nothing I can do...
    I hope you do manage to sort it out

    Hi

    If you've been given it to take longer term, you probably won't be on a high enough dose to give you any feelings where you can tell the difference majorly. You'll probably have to pay attention to your own feelings to be able to tell the difference it's having, but you'll certainly find that you're a lot calmer

    TBH I think that kind of thig is pretty common in people who listen to DSBM. It's almost a pre-requisite for it :p:

    How come you don't drink anymore?

    Not to scare you but there was a case of someone taking valium, getting violent and then killing someone. He was able to rely on the defence of automatism, however.

    It doesn't make me feel anything in particular. Just, drowsy. It gets rid of that horrible 'knots in stomach' feeling that I'd normally get when I don't take it.

    It's not like getting high or anything, in my experience.
