Your discription of your sx certainly sounds like anxiety. I think the most important move you have made is to get back on your Lexapro and that you are seeing a therapist. It may take some hard work but I would like to believe that with time the Lexapro will help you and your therapist will work with you in getting out of this depressive state.
You have a lot going on and please try not to be so hard on yourself.

This is my 4th doctor. After the first one I was so sick I ended up in the hospital. After I got out, the doctor (#2 aside from the hospital) didn't seem to want to treat me anymore because I have such bad reactions. So I switched to a really great doc, who is now taking it very slow. I've been on Lexapro for about 6 weeks with minimal improvements. Last time I took it, it worked in a month. But that time was only anxiety and it wasn't that bad. I've tried just about everything else. Maybe it has more to do with celiac. (Which means I have an autoimmune response to wheat, barley, etc. mostly every additive in food) I just don't know how to work on this to make myself better. I feel like I'm waiting for it to go away and I don't have time to wait anymore.How long do episodes typically last? I know everyone is different...but maybe just an average?
