Suggest treatment for anxiety disorder

I suffer severe GAD, am on methadone as well. The GAD is debilitatating enough to keep me from holding jobs, The methadone clinic requires I do not use klonopin due to the breathing depression probs, and to go cold turkey from methadone terrifies me. I have been tryng to hold a job long enough to ease myself off in a medically safe manner, but by refraining from antianxiety meds, this has been very difficult to do, To add to this, my heart stopped 5 times in 4 days a year ago, which adds to my anxiety and heightens my fears of going cold turkey, My clinic is fully aware, but is more about the paying customer than the health and welfare of the patient. When I am working (and paying) then i should try to do what I plan and my fears are justified When I am unable to pay, I ll get through it, I am brave and it is not nearly as bad as I fear . I have no money since the GAD is debilitating enough this time for my job to have lasted 2 paychecks

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. I can understand your emotions. You should not stop working because vocational therapy is going to pay dividents and cure. These symptoms will present itself for some days. There are no short cut methods other than the medicine itself. You are being anxious and that is the problem. Anxiety is capable to produce so many symptoms in your body which may not have any scientific explanation. Ignorance is the proper treatment. Exercise, yoga, meditation and psychotherapy helps improve your metabolism and thinking style. Drink lot of liquids and fruit juices.

You need counseling and psychotherapy. I shall provide you with the required counseling and psychotherapy techniques online, to overcome these problems. Please describe the whole problem in detail and post a direct question to me.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.uck.
