The problem I have is when I have to go somewhere during the day or if I have to wake up in the morning to go to work, couple of hours before I get anxious and keep looking at my watch all the time and the whole time I have this anxiety. And I end up cancelling my apointments last minute.
Please help me with my problem.
What exactly do you feel anxious about? Are you anxious about being late? Are you anxious about having to communicate with the people you need to meet? The first step to conquering your anxiety is admitting what makes you feel anxious.
You have Social Anxiety Disorder. I've had it so bad that I would sweat my brains out and sometimes not even be able to leave the hose for weeks. You need to see a Psychiatrist and get some kind of medication that will help. I'm on Wellbutrine & Xanax. Ask for the extended release less chance of getting addicted. I also go and see a therapist every week to find out why I have these problems. If you don't have insurance look into your Village,Town, City for what we have is a Village Nurse, Chicago has Cook County Hospital and these services are free. Well you do have to do some paper work. Good luck to you. Even though I can't see your wounds I know they are there.
Social phobia, also called social anxiety disorder, involves overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in everyday social situations. People with social phobia have a persistent, intense, and chronic fear of being watched and judged by others and being embarrassed or humiliated by their own actions. Their fear may be so severe that it interferes with work or school, and other ordinary activities. While many people with social phobia recognize that their fear of being around people may be excessive or unreasonable, they are unable to overcome it. They often worry for days or weeks in advance of a dreaded situation. Social phobia can be limited to only one type of situation such as a fear of speaking in formal or informal situations, or eating, drinking, or writing in front of others or, in its most severe form, may be so broad that a person experiences symptoms almost anytime they are around other people. Social phobia can be very debilitating it may even keep people from going to work or school on some days.
Many people with this illness have a hard time making and keeping friends. Physical symptoms often accompany the intense anxiety of social phobia and include blushing, profuse sweating, trembling, nausea, and difficulty talking. If you suffer from social phobia, you may be painfully embarrassed by these symptoms and feel as though all eyes are focused on you. You may be afraid of being with people other than your family. People with social phobia are aware that their feelings are irrational. Even if they manage to confront what they fear, they usually feel very anxious beforehand and are intensely uncomfortable throughout. Afterward, the unpleasant feelings may linger, as they worry about how they may have been judged or what others may have thought or observed about them.
Social phobia affects about 5.3 million adult Americans. Social phobia often co-occurs with other anxiety disorders or depression. Substance abuse or dependence may develop in individuals who attempt to “self-medicate” their social phobia by drinking or using drugs. Social phobia can be treated successfully with carefully targeted psychotherapy and or medications.
Should you be prescribed benzodiazepines, medications such as Xanax, Valium, Atavan, and Klondipin are the most common. It’s wise to abstain from alcohol because the interaction between those medications and alcohol can easily lead to serious and possibly life-threatening complications. It’s extremely important to tell your doctor about other medications being taken. People taking benzodiazepines for weeks or months may develop tolerance for and dependence on these drugs. Abuse and withdrawal reactions will occur should anyone stop taking those medications for any reason. And for those reasons, the medications are generally prescribed for brief periods of time; days or a few weeks.

When facing problems a child can go to a loving father and receive direction and comfort. Similarly, we can go to our heavenly Father, Jehovah, [The King James version of the bible @ Psalm 83:18 (chapter 83 in verse 18) ] with our problems. In fact, Jehovah [ Jesus christ's father] invites us to throw our burdens and anxieties upon him. (Psalm 55:22) Like a child who no longer worries about his problems after he has received assurances from his father, we should not only throw our burdens upon Jehovah but also leave them with him.—James 1:6. Talk to God as if he were a person.You won't be able to see him, but if you believe that he hears you, you will feel much better.
How do we throw our anxieties upon Jehovah? Philippians 4:6, 7 answers: “Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” Yes, in response to our persistent prayers and supplications, Jehovah can give us an inner calm that protects our minds from being disturbed by unnecessary anxieties.—Jeremiah 17:7, 8; Matthew 6:25-34.
To work in harmony with our prayers, though, we should not isolate ourselves either physically or mentally. (Proverbs 18:1) Rather, we would do well to consider Bible principles and directions that touch on our problem, thus avoiding reliance upon our own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5, 6) Young and old alike can turn to the Bible for a wealth of information on making decisions and dealing with problems. Additionally, in the Christian congregation, we are blessed with wise and experienced elders and other mature Christians who are always willing to talk to us. (Proverbs 11:14; 15:22) Those who are not emotionally involved and who have God’s mind on a matter can often help us to look at our problems from a different perspective. And while they will not make decisions for us, they can be a great source of encouragement and support.

One session with them and you can usually handle the rest yourself relative to your current problem or any others that may show up in the future no matter what they are. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask...I'll be glad to enlighten you and point you in the right direction
