Best way to deal with anxiety at work until I can get on medicine?
Today all I did was sign up the initial forms and my anxiety already overwhelmed me and nearly freaked out. I can't let that happen of course when I start working. I see the psychiatrist Tuesday morning, I have orientation for work Tuesday night. However I can't start my medicine until Thursday because I am on a sliding scale with the office as i have not had income or insurance and they will give me free medicine. How can I keep it together long enough to keep my job while waiting to get my medicine?

This does not work for everyone with anxiety but it helps a lot of us. Take inositol, you can buy it in capsules or powder. In your case, I would recommend the powder. Mix it in water - it has a slight sweet thing going on, and sip on it through the day. You can buy it at health food stores and it is considered to be... More
