Thank you everyone for your caring and responses. I am feeling a good bit better. The Xanax made a big difference. It finally took away the majority of the incredibly awful anxiety that never stopped. I am still tired, depressed and feeling a bit defeated, but I am calmer.
I also take Prozac and Trazodone. The problem was, that I have not been getting enough sleep because I was working, and when I took the Trazodone I was sleeping through my online classes that I needed to teach. Obviously, that is not a good thing. If I had missed one more class, I could have lost my job. So, I stopped taking the Trazodone. And that was obviously a bad move, because that is when the anxiety started building up like never before.
My therapist gave me a "cut-off" time of 10:00 pm. If I can't take it before then, I will not take it at all. But in the interest of feeling better, I am trying very hard to take the lowest dose of it every night..
Thank you all for caring, and for also following up again with me Myself. Again, I am better. I'm just feeling a bit defeated.
