Wedding with an anxiety disorder. Anyone else experiencing it?
So I’m getting married in less than 5 months. I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder a few years ago and have been struggling with anxiety for over 15 years now. I’ve started thinking about how I would feel on the wedding day because it’s getting closer. I have an irrational fear of fainting or being sick in front of everyone at the ceremony. I know, I know, it’s all people who are there for you and love you BUT like I said it’s an irrational fear. Has anyone else experienced it? I was thinking of taking something like Xanax or Ativan (very low dose obviously because I’ve taken it before and I know what it does) the night before and maybe the morning of the wedding. I need to ask my doctor for a prescription but I’m afraid she’ll just brush it off because “it’s normal to be nervous on your wedding day”! I know it’s normal to be a bit nervous, but right now that’s all I think about and it’s getting exhausting. Please share your stories if you’d like
