Hey everyone, I am doing pretty good. I went to the dr. today and he increased my xanax to the .5 instead of the .25 and recommended i go to a psychologist for counseling..He did say that I now have Panic Disorder along with Generalized Anxeity Disorder but he said if i take my medication right and go to counseling that I won't have it forever...now i don't know how much i believe that because my whole family on both sides all have panic/anxeity disorder so idk about that, but i am just glad to have my medication straightned out..being without it for so long really sucks...anyways just thought i would give you guys an update, hope everyone is doing well! smilewinkgrin

Good Morning. I am glad to hear your medication was tweaked and that you are doing better. I think seeing a psychologist is a wonderful idea. I see one and she is so very helpful.
I think perhaps your physician was saying you can learn how to keep your anxiety under control however it will always be part of who you are and accepting that is a good thing. Knowing yourself and when you need to put yourself first and kick the anxiety to the curb is a huge part in keeping the anxiety at a low level. Just my 2 cents worth this morning.

Good luck and stick with us,
