Hi all. It has been quite some time since I have posted. In spring of 2008 I was diagnosed with panic/anxiety disorder. After intense CBT I was doing great. But of course, these wonderful feelings (sarcastically) seem to always find a way back. I have had a few episodes since but not as bad as this one! I threw up and ended up calling into work. I think just these two things can increase my anxiety! Plus I have been depressed. Of course it was that time of the month..but have had bouts of crying that I can't stop and don't know what causes it. I guess I just needed to reach out to those wonderful people on this forum to find some love and comfort. I'm sure you all can agree..I HATE THIS FEELING!!! cry

That's great that things were going so well for you. You may not be able to leave your anxiety behind for the rest of your life, but you clearly have learned some skills that will make "this round" of anxiety much easier on you. I imagine your first bout of anxiety was a rockier road than this is/ will be. Hang in there - you WILL get through this.

Hello deedah
Sorry to hear you are having problems but glad to see your post.  Did something trigger this attack? 
Unhappy to read   you are having problems with the depression too and as you know, the 2 disorders go hand in hand so often.  Wondering if you have seen your Dr. and also can you get back to working the CBT program ? 
We are always hear to support you and I am glad you reached out. 
Gentle Hugs,

Thank you for your supportive words. Saw my CBT today and he thinks I got the stomach virus and that caused my anxiety. And like you said Kit..the depression and anxiety go hand in hand. Time to do some thought challenging as why my physical symptoms are not catastrophic. The only thing I know that caused this to come on is the yucky feelings in my stomach from the virus.

Thanks for all the support this wonderful forum has to offer
