I've been battling with anxiety since childhood. I've been taking medication for 6 years now. I've always had anxiety attacks before talking with people or presentations but I could ease the symptoms with Dideral.
This time, I have to move to another city in a week for a mandatory govermental work which requires a lot of face-to-face communication and lots of other anxiety inducing work. I couldn't sleep last 4 days, I can't eat, I am having hot flushes and such. I've visited psychiatry but they just gave me Efexor and told me it would take 4 weeks to see progress which is common for every antidepressants.
Also, I've mostly overcome this issue before but after my father died 5 months ago this issue started again in an intensed way. I couldn't even talk with my close friends for the first 2 months.
I don't know what else to do. I am talking with my mother but I am just making her upset. She couldn't help me.
I know that most of you have/had the same problems. Some of you may mock me or see me as a normie, but I know that some of you can help me. Please help me guys.
