I have HORRIBLE fears; fear of thunderstorms, fear of new medication, fear of being in the car... these fears affect me in a horrible way and sometimes make life pretty hard on me. Like tonight my anxiety is VERY BAD because I am supposed to start a new medication before bed. 300mg neurontin. I am terrified to take medicines before I go to sleep for fear of not knowing how my body will react and that I may die from it while sleeping. Last night, there was a 30% chance of thunderstorms, I couldnt sleep until almost 3am after taking 4 tylenol pm's... I need help getting over these fears! I am on 20mg paxil once a day, this helps take the edge off of the anxiety attacks but I does not help at all in copping with my fears.
