There is nothing "self-pitying" about noticing a change in your anxiety and moving towards resolving it. Kudos to you.
Like karen, I've been hit with anxiety at some of my "happiest, most successful" times. It's just one of those things..The important thing is to recognise it, treat it (however you have in the past if it was succesful) and to not let it get you down. It's a condition, like everything else in our lives that requires treatment from time to time.
Stay positive..you're fighting this well.
