I agree that you have an obvious anxiety issue that must be resolved. But, IMHO, there appears to be a significant depressive element in what you describe in your posts. Whether it's GAD plus a form of depression or GAD alone is not something I would know.

I will say that I have dealt with bipolar for many years, and like many with BP, my life is dominated by the depressive element. Even so, I've had a couple serious breakdowns where anxiety was the acute symptom (one involving SI and months off from work), yet none of the psychiatrists and therapists have ever viewed it as GAD.

I suggested trazodone because it's an AD that's sometimes prescribed off-label for anxiety disorders. I am sorry if I offended you with my sense that this is more than just anxiety.
