Career Army Officer ambushed by the most irrational, gnawing anxiety . Irrational because I get so stressed over handling those military tasks and functions that were routine, enjoyable, part of my daily life. Can't shut mind off for sleep. I'm new to asking for help, but it's begun to suck the life out of days. Can any of you recommend what drugs offer low dose ameliorating calming effect ? I need to be functional, not drooling. Little unforecast events can put me in a tailspin; can't hold attention, general crappy feeling, nervousness, gnawing worry. Thank you .
