Generalized Anxiety: Anxiety can take over your waking thoughts and prevent you from coping effectively. Yes, one can have a generalized anxiety disorder. Try keeping a log of what triggers the anxiety (people, situations, lack of food or sleep). It is important to get daily exercise, about 30 minutes of brisk walking. Talk with your partner or a trusted friend. Consider appt with a psychologist if it gets worse.

Generalized anxiety once developed can spread quickly and become so strong we have trouble thinking clearly. The first step is to bring the anxiety down through talking with trusted friends if this isn't possible psychotherapy might be needed.

Dr. Kevin Passer

Sex therapy: There are actually folks who specialize in this area and they are called sex therapists. As performance anxiety is quite common, a good sex therapist should be quite well versed at addressing your concerns and issues. I also suggest finding a patient partner. Share your concerns with he or she in an open and honest manner. Most people are more understanding than many might think.
