If you have been diagnosed with this, what are some things you have done to control it? I had it and never realized it til a couple years ago. I would worry about the craziest things continually, and could never relax. After a particularly bad episode of thinking I was horribly sick, I experienced panic attacks. They treated me with Klonopin and Seroquel, which worked well and now for the most part i have it under control without medication. I haven't been medicated for over 2 years now. But at times I do still worry about strange things (like my cat escaped for 2 days and I was convinced he had gotten rabies while he was outside and i was going to get rabies lol). It took me literally 2 weeks to get over that before I realized he was fine! How do you calm yourself and convince yourself you are being irrational? Sometimes, I just can't relax. Its not at the point of meds though. What helps you?
