Strange anxiety...
Dec 2, 2009
Hi All,

I havent posted in a while because like some other people's posts Ive read, I felt just fine for about a month. I just want to know if anyone else out there has the same strange anxiety that I do. My anxiety started about 4 yrs ago for no reason (i have been to a few therapists over the yrs, and after a couple months, they all say that i dont seem to need therapy - also, just to note, these are really highly recommended therapists with great credentials). The psychiatrist im seeing says that my anxiety is strange because it comes out of nowhere, for no discernable reason & I dont have panic attacks nor am afraid of having them. I am just afraid of worrying about anxiety and depression for the rest of my life. But back to the main point, it seems like my anxiety goes away for periods of up to a month and then returns horribly for about a week or two. Can anyone relate to this? I currently take lexapro 20mg and have xanax for as needed, which i rarely take because it makes me so tired and foggy. I know Im am obviously preaching to the choir here, but it's so frustrating when i cant pinpoint what causes it - i feel like i have no control.:confused:
I dont know if i should try a different med or what. I have read just about every book i can get my hands on about anxiety and I have a lot of the workbooks too! Ive tried meditation and yoga. Not sure where to go from here. thanks so much for reading this and just want to say thanks for all the's amazing to know i am not alone out here!:)
