I suffer tremendously from GAD or some sort anxiety producing thing in my head and it is now snuffing more and more life of me. I think my mind, like your is so strong that it won't let anything/anyone(me included) really get to the bottom of the issue. I actually think i created an issue just to protect myself from life loniness, pain, etc? hell i don't know. the result is just that, no life and lots of lonlines. My mind will not let me get to step 2 until i can understand or make sense of this block. Stopped working, refuse to date until i find peace of mind just being a lone. What I have done fro the last several years is just rise above it and i am tired and it was too stressful. You are fortunate to have a breakthrough as i don't think there is any issues that happened to me. I did this to myself some weird way. I relate with you and how the mind is so strong with smoke screens. I tried Luvox years ago and I may go on it again as I am not doing a damn thing with my lame self right now. Lamictal helped me rev up past this thing in my head and i was able to get some owrk done but it was so much work ot overpower this this fear. Thanks for the success story and I really relate to what you said. Continued success

> Re your anxiety.
> I suffered from severe anxiety for more than 20 years and have just overcome this anxiety after 3 years of medication and therapy. My anxiety was sourced back to my childhood and my father. My breakthrough came when i was able to identify this and broke of all contact with my parents and was able to relinquish all influence they had over my life.This was due to an emotional baptism of pain in my relationship with my wife, who had the courage, foresight, faith and love to stick with me through it all (10 years of marraige).
> I started treatment with Luvox, i dont recall the dose but i was maxing when i switched to effexor. At 150mg i felt the first effects and eventually settled at 300mg. In hindsight 450mg would probably have been more effective but the SE's where already freaking me out at 300mg. I also took a sedative (i dont recall name) which was effective for about 2-3 months then lost effectiveness and merely led to semi-addiction.
> With regard to diagnoses, i found that it depended on the psychologist or psychiatrist that is treating. Each has a different insight and prognosis depending on there personal / professional experience. My limited experience illustrated that if one Pdoc is not working, or after 2-3months cannot identify your problem, change till you find the one that can. It saved my life. Anxiety was tough to beat because the mind is extremely powerful at protecting you personally from external damage and throws up all kinds of smoke screens to prevent emotional trauma. My anxiety was a result of my mind continually seeking external stimuli to create situations that prevented me from dealing with the emotional reality i was involved in.
> I am not a doc so this is just my personal view, but anxiety can be beaten.
