You are just regurgitating all the falacy filled crap you have found on
the net . Cognitive behavioral therapy. give me a break. learn to think
on your own because you are spreading misconceptions.

I have a chronic social anxiety condition. I have been on seroquel for
about 2 yrs. The seroquel only works for about 2 weeks max before you
need a higher dose. Now I cant sleep if i stop seroquel. I would avoid
all anti-anxiety meds if your anxiety is chronic.

For chronic anxiety Cognitive Behavioral Therapy* is the therapy of
choice but if necessary it can very well be combined with medication.

Dont take a label like mildly bipolar seriously. It has no meaning.

Of course it has. Whether it's the right diagnosis in this case is
impossible to tell for anybody over the internet.

When you are anxious that is sort of like being high so your highs will
be higher and your lows will be lower than a normal person. Instead of
lows you might just have insomnia or a general malaise.

Anxiety is not at all like being high IMO & IME.

What is causing your anxiety. Breathing and meditation are helpful. You
need to know you can control your anxiety. Jogging etc is fine but take
it easy in the beginning.

Exercise, breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, tai-chi, haptonomy
etc.etc. can all be helpful along with nutritional supplements such as
omega-3 fish oil etc. but in most cases they won't do enough.

Get used of the fact that the doctors know zero.

Although some of them indeed tend to give that impression as a blanket
statement this is nonsensical. There is knowledge and experience out
there and with the right pdoc and cb-therapist a brighter future is in
store for you.

Initially, my doctor thought I have acute anxiety, but now we both seem
to think it's actually chronic. In addition, it appears that I may be
mildly bipolar.

My doctor says that my heart is beating too fast as measured with holter
monitor, so her prescribed Seroquel. Since being on the Seroquel, I
have worn an aerobic heart monitor and my heart rate is overall faster
than before in resting phase. I also compared the results before with
the same monitor and my heart rate was slower.

In addition, I am reluctant to do any exercise like jogging or using the
treadmill because my heart rate is high. I am thinking that it is
better if I just rest since my heart works so hard at work or when I go

My doc has not suggested any relaxing techniques or referred me to
anyone else he can help with behavioral modification.
