I have had anxiety most of my life I am in my 30's now.. For some reason I am unable to deal with it like I have had to in the past.. I have been on every med there is and only one works--xanax- I know doctors see it as a habit forming drug--but it does work for me.. I do not abuse it.. I take it when I need it.

I recently went to a doctor in East texas where I just moved-- She gave me Lexapro- tried it made the attacks ten x's worse on top of that she gave me Libruim-- for the attacks that happened quick she said-without notice-- this was nothing-- could not find much info on the drug other then Alc. use it to ward off the shakes.. I called her and she call me in Vistrill- for allegry medicine-- does not make me sleep or take away the attacks.. Does do wonders for my Hay Fever lol...

I own a business do it mostly on line. Just had a little girl about 9 mts ago... I have a new truck ande dread driving it... Do not talk to my neighbors... I hate Wal-mart--shopping for anything will bring on an attack.. This morning I need to go to the store and can't--

This sucks.. I have been reading this website and others like it for years and never joined...

I feel like life is passing me by---I dont want to reret not doing things because of FEAR... It sucks..

Welcome to HealingWell,

I have found the support, validation and encouragement that I receive here, to be so helpful and healing. I hope and trust that will be your experience as a member of the HW family.

May I suggest you see a Psychiatrist re prescribing medication for you as they are well educated in the mutiple antidepressants and anxiolytic medications.

I have seen a phys in the past.. Here is not so easy the health care is far and few between. My phys in the last state I lived in gave me Trazadone- which did help for awhile but stopped... I have to travel to see a doctor here...
Thank You for your welcome and yes after many yrs of reading others I hope to contribute here in some way if possible
