You have described my anxiety episodes to a T. I feel exactly like that and I don't know why. It just hits me and I have to work at bringing the anxiety down. Today I am doing well and even had tests done at hospital this AM and no tears. I talked and visited with the staff and came home and was not anxious about the tests.
So yes you are feeling anxiety. Please use your meds and if they help you that is good. It is very painful to be in a high anxiety state so don't beat yourself up. Anxiety is not fun and it is not something you can always just turn off.
I have depresssion too and I feel, IMHO, that the two go together. Who wouldn't feel depressed if they were feeling anxious, crying and could not sleep.
Remember you have anxiety, it does not have you so keep posting, take your meds and think about some sort of therapy.
Do nice things just for you. Pamper yourself and know I am here for you.
