Have you talked to a doctor about it?

Klonopin! I have anticipatory anxiety... so I assume the worst before it's happened. My therapist gave me a great coping strategy and that is to answer my "what ifs"



For example: I used to panic and think that the answer to everything was that I was going to die...



what if my son doesn't sleep all night?! Then I would move on to the next source of panic instead of answering this, building up my anxiety.



Proper Answer: well I guess he'll be tired and grumpy and so will I.



It makes much more sense when I can verbalize this. But rationalize with yourself instead of assuming the worst!

Not recently. I have an appointment in three weeks though.

I think that's the best first step.
