I am 37 years old and have had GAD for 12 years now. I don't know anyone else who has this type of anxiety. I feel mostly alone because no one understands what I am going through. My family and friends don't understand they tell me let it go, get over it, your driving us nuts. So I am looking for others that feel what I do and can share their experience. I am currently not on medication. I was on medication for 6 years and quit cold turkey then I had 5 years of no significant episodes and was off the medication. During my pregnancy it got real bad and after I gave birth everything went back to normal. Now my anxiety is back full force my sister always seems to be my trigger and that's who I constantly worry and obsess about. I wish I could just let things go. I am in therapy but I go back and forth with the medication issue. My other question is has anyone taken medications while pregnant and if so what kind and how was the baby?
