Thanks for responding. No the lowest dose of xanax didn't help. I saw a doctor and she gave me an EKG and listened to my lungs, etc and said I was fine and that anxiety is what I have.

Since I was "fine" physically I went to a psychiatrist and he said I have severe anxiety as well. He said he noticed how anxious I was, even talking to him. He prescribed a bunch. Gabapentin! I refuse to take that three times a day! He prescribed the antidepressant lexapro and I take that once a day in very small dose. (I don't want to become hooked on these!) he also suggested I take lorazepam in the morning and at night to feel calmer.

I have been taking lexapro and lorazepam and they seemed to make me less depressed but the whole annoying breathing thing I still bothering me. It won't go away! What I hate the most is the fact that I can't seem to fall asleep due to it despite taking lorazepam to sedate me. -.- I'm so frustrated because I been coping with it for a whole week and all I can think about is when it will go away and if it ever will go away.

I know I have been taking very low dosages of my MEds but the thought of taking so many MEds freaks me out so I don't want to. It seems this anxiety ridden time period is impossible to escape. It's either u take the MEds and they don't work, ur scared to take the MEds, u take them and worry about being hooked on them, and then if you don't take them the constant fear of not being treated (leading to worse anxiety) is there.

I just want to go back to the days where I can fall into my bed and embrace it while being nice and sleepy, being allowed to sleep and feeling comfy. Now I can't seem to relax no matter how tired I feel and I just want this to go away. I think this is the worst condition a person could have especially if you feel you can't breathe in deep. I just want a normal life back, I'm not asking for anything ever again besides the gift of being able to breathe normally and fall asleep.

To answer your questions : school wasn't that stressful. Sure I had finals but I received my grades soon and they were good. I have been off for a month so no reason to feel stressed out! I don't love school but I think my College is pretty decent and the idea of going back isn't too overwhelming. I'm studying English and psychology (ironically enough) but its my first year so it's not too much.

My home life is good too, my parents take care of me and try to be as supportive as possible about my anxiety....

As far as losing weight, I want to for my health and other ppl encourage me to.
I don't know why I am so full of anxiety, it's so disturbing to feel so uncomfortable and not know why.

I don't know what makes me feel so distressed. It's that feeling of not being able to take a deep breath that drives me crazy. Even when I'm calm and neutral it comes back. I went out for walks and it was still there, just that I wasn't hyperventilating. Ugh I'm so frustrated it always makes me feel paranoid about hyperventilating or dyingg. It makes me feel abnormal and like I can never put my guard down.

I'm going to start exercising and doing stuff to exhaust myself so I can hopefully get rid of it and start sleeping again. Idk what else to say. I feel like therapy won't help, talking about it just reminds me.
