I was wondering..when did your anxiety symptoms begin? Did it come on suddenly or gradually get worse over a period of time or did you have spells of it and then it would go away and come back?
Do you wake up scared in the mornings (or, rather, did you?) Do you now wake up feeling normal?
Has your doctor given you any clue as to what the cause of your symptoms is? And I forget whether you are on any AD or not.
Anyway, I am so glad you are better.
