Hmm, and my pdoc says I have 'repressed' anxiety, depression & inattentive ADD. I guess that's like I'm anxious about some repressed anger or fear from the past but I don't really clearly feel angry, afraid anxious or even depressed in an obvious way. He prescribed effexor which really made a difference of feeling much less tense and more easy going. Unfortunately it did nothing for my motivation and made me sleepy in the day then sleep poorly at night. I always thought of myself as very mellow because I try to me mellow and I prefer to be that way but I guess it's a struggle trying to maintain that calmness and my state has always been sort of a forced calm. Chain smoking helps maintain the illusion <g> and drinking in the evening... The presenting symptom to all this has been a prolonged low level depression, increased drinking and a stubborn attitude that got me unemployed and unwilling to take 'reasonable' measures to correct the situation. I've just refused to do things I don't want to. I'm still not able to get over this whole blockage thing.

Anyways maybe there are bits of something in there that tie into other types of anxiety and help to explain the condition better. Maybe someone can say which parts of that are not anxiety related. It's quite a grey amorphous muddle of low grade symptoms.
