A little while ago I took the anti-anxiety medication Hydroxyzine to help me to stop worrying, but actually I'm pretty calm (physically, at least). I'm even a little sleepy. So I feel guilty to take anti-anxiety medication in spite of that, but the worries and the rumination just won't stop. I had to make a few important phone calls, and I'm avoiding checking an online private message from a person I think is mad at me. I really hate using the phone, I think I honestly have whatever a phone phobia would be called. Does anyone else have experience using anxiety medication(s) for symptoms that go beyond body sensations or panic? Again, I feel really quite calm except for the awful stressful thoughts repeating themselves in a big annoying loop.
