Greetings fellow worriers!

Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. This might be a little long, so read on if you're bored ;)

I've been feeling odd for most of my life (21yo), but only relatively recently (~2 years ago) was able to admit it to myself and put a name to the feeling: anxiety. I've been seeing a counsellor, psychologist, etc. and was officially diagnosed with GAD a while ago. It's been a relief, really. To finally be able to pin it down on something. So, after that I started taking Paxil in higher and higher doses (up to 60mg/day). It helped me quite a bit and allowed me to sort out some personal/identity issues that were just making things worse.

Although it helped me feel better generally, I still felt slightly anxious for most of the day and very anxious sometimes. So I decided to talk to my doctor about switching drugs. We decided on Zoloft, another SSRI. I've been on it for only a few days, so it'll be a while before I know whether it's better or worse for me than Paxil.

I'm having a rather anxious evening, so while reading up on the drug I've recently started taking I found this site. Talking to others about my condition has helped me immensely in the past, and this seems like a great place to do just that.

Just wanted to say hi to everyone!

PS. If anyone is in a similar situation (or even not) and wants to talk about it, feel free to PM me!
