> Dear Daizy,

> What was your original diagnosis? Was it the anxiety? The reason I ask is that my first symptom that something was wrong was a massive panic attack and I began suffering panic/anxiety attacks VERY similar to what you described. The meds my original doc prescribed, Xanax and Elavil, were terrible. In any event, four months into the panic/anxiety, I nosedived into a severe depression. Like you, my anxiety worsened in the evening, even to the point of waking me once I was asleep. However, all attempts at conquering the panic/anxiety were futile because, for me, they were warnings of the oncoming depression. After three and a half years of hell (depression w/anxiety/panic), I did recover and have only had one minor relapse in seven years. There's hope....

That's the scariest part for me... knowing that the panic and anxiety push me further into depression. I'll fight tooth and nail to stay out of that. I used to be a real dumb as* when it came to using drugs for psych disorders; that people who did we're weak minded (though I had no problem for many years doing "illeagal" drugs - idiot.) And now my attitude is "what ever it takes." I didn't realize what it was like to live w/o depression. Depression is awful and panic/anxiety is awful, and there is no shame in fighting it with all available means.
