Hi All- I endured neglect / abuse from my biological mother from the ages of 0-4...so yeah, I have issues. One of my biggest is anxiety in relationships. I have an amazing boyfriend who I KNOW I can trust deep down. However, I still have anxiety, panic attacks and turn into a mess when he does something as simple as go out with friends. I know this is so irrational, and I have nothing to worry about (except my irrationality driving him away). I just want to be "normal" and say "bye, have a great time" and just hang out at home, get a hobby, etc. But I find myself sitting here paranoid and anxious as hell. And then I text. And then I ask when he'll be home. And then I ask who he's with ... if you've experienced it, you get it. I'm at a loss of what to do. I've been on a cocktail of meds in the past year and diagnosed with everything from bipolar to borderline, and finally I have a doctor that I think I can trust. He's told me anxiety with a bit of PTSD is my main problem, and has put me on Zoloft starting at 50mg. I'm looking for anyone who has attachment anxiety on here to let me know if Zoloft has helped at all? And if so, what has -- medication wise and therapy wise? THANK YOU
yesterday i was given a diagnoses, the classic "anxiety, social anxiety, depression" i'm used to, but the psychiatrist also threw in "attachment dysphoria". not knowing what this was, i googled it on the way home. i just got results about gender dysphoria, which in this case was pretty unrelated. he was mumbling when he talked, i thought maybe he said "attachment disorder"? after looking at this, yeah, those symptoms are pretty spot on, but it's generally caused by child abuse or neglect during development. i went through a period of neglect during infancy but not long or prominent enough to be behind anything (at least i think;;) and the shrink doesn't know about it. so tldr; i have no idea what he meant, if anyone does please help me out !! thank you
