I don’t know if several people guess what general anxiety disorder is.
General anxiety disorder is a fear of leaving your home.
Even the thought of doing anything can cause such extreme anxiety that I can barely handle it. I already had extreme anxiety. I couldn’t motivate myself to do my work, or even go to the grocery store on my own. I talked to my doctor because my anxiety was getting so terrible I was becoming nonfunctional. I didn’t even want to answer the door. I was getting my groceries online as well as having the items delivered to my house. I had explicit instruction to go with every delivery I got. The delivery driver was to ring the doorbell three times, then leave the items on the doorstep outside the house. When I saw them pull away, I would open the door to bring my order inside. There were only several people who I would allow at my house. My doctor, who was also my best friend, my sister, as well as my dad. Mom thought I was losing my mind. They all met at my home to talk to me. Charlie, my best neighbor as well as doctor, suggested that he had something that could help me. He said they had legalized medical marijuana not long ago. He had read quite a few articles about medical marijuana as well as he thought it might help with general anxiety disorder. He gave me a prescription for medical marijuana and told me how to get my marijuana card. My sister picked up my first prescription at the medical marijuana dispensary. My dad was there to hold my hand and support me. I couldn’t believe the difference marijuana made, as well as I was able to leave my home after about three weeks, with the help of my support group.
