Does anyone here take them? All my life I have been an extremely high strung person. Always on edge, always stressing to the maximum about something. Even if life is good, I will invent something to stress about to the point where it has an extremely negative impact on my life. Probably 50% of my day is trying to calm myself down from stress/paranoia. Even if amazing things happen and I'm having one of the best days of my life, I'll just move the goalpost and think "well, thats great but I still have X to worry about" Cant take benzos. How do beta blockers work in comparison? I've heard of stage performers taking them before performing. I just need something that doesn't have high abuse potential to level me tf out so I dont feel like I could snap at any moment. Please dont suggest meditating or some motivation podcast/speech. they can only do so much, although I do utilize those things a lot.
