Hello! I am so, so grateful to have found this forum. I recently went back to school (grad school) and am finding myself having the same feelings I've had since elementary school. I get that paralyzed feeling that I'm sure you all have felt. I even have to give speeches in my class. I never thought I would have to give a speech again, and I am so distraught over it. I was Googling something about Xanax because I am just so desparate to find some kind of help, and that's how I found this forum. It will be nice to have some support! I've never met anyone with anxiety like mine.
