Hi, I cope with anxiety on a daily basis. How do you handle social situations when anxious?

      I ve been on xanax since 1997 &I have built up a huge tolerance. I can take 3 of the 2 mg tablets and it barely fazes me. Valium makes me mean and klonopin makes me a cleptomaniac so something new would be nice

      I have never heard of proponal. How does it compare to xanax. Does it help with sleep

      I find that practicing physical grounding before the event (so going out into my yard, barefoot, and connecting with the earth) while engaging in deep breathing techniques that I learned on the Calm app is super helpful. If I can create the space to practice this about an hour before heading out to said event, I notice a measurable difference. Also, I purposefully only surround myself now with friends/people who understand that I may need to back out at the last minute, and don’t judge me for this. That has been an equally important part of this journey. Surround yourself with people who understand & respect your anxiety, and would never make you feel bad or guilty about not attending an event because of it

      I avoid most social gatherings. I do have friends I feel safe with.

        @LunaMia how does it work for you? Is there side effects like Xanax?

          @cloudstalker for me it is great, it calmed me Down without getting sleepy. I used to gane Xanax for this. I take 20 mg as needed only once a day.
