i have read books--talk to professionals--nothing helps.  I know logically all the I dread most likely won't come true.  however it doesn't seem to matter because there is a part of me that just can't stop the anxiety and the feelign from surfacing.  I hate going out ,   I am worry we will be broke, . I know all the technigues to deal but it just doesn't help. I have these attacks will I feel a sort of tightnessin my chest and my heart racing.  It happens multiple times in a day.  The weird thing is it will happen when I am not anxious. when I am just zoned out on tv  or at work concentrating on a project     I don't know where to turn   I guess a part of me is coming ot the realization that this is my life.  I have seen others ay they have dealt withit for 40 years and I i guess this is my fate

how to stop the pain,

Good Morning and Welcome to the A & P Forum. I have read some of your posts in Depression and as I have both A & P and Depression I understand how you feel.

I am just wondering what you dose is on the Lexapro.....10 mg or 20 mg.  You perhaps woud benefit from and increase in your med if you are on 10 mg or changing to a differnt med.  Many people have found that after they have been on a med for awhile it stops working as well as it should for them.

Perhaps a visit with you physician would be helpful.

Again welcome

Hi there, well I can tell one huge thing from your post.
Negative dialogue

You keep giving yourself negative reinforcements and the subconscious is going to believe everything you tell it.
How do I know this, well because I'm the queen of being negative and telling myself I can't succeed or will never get better

Of course we need to be realistic and know we will have anxiety until the day we are off this planet, but that doesn't mean you have to suffer from it. Choosing to suffer from anxiety is all our choice.

What books have you read?

I so agree
YOU have to find some positivity within yourself
If you feel like a failure you will be that ( in your eyes)
