Hello, my name is Sharon. I have been suffering from an anxiety disorder since August. I have tried a number of medications. So far, nothing has worked, and/or has caused severe problems. I am currently on a cocktail of wellbutrin, paxil, and lithium (very tiiny doses) due to my sensitivity. I feel better at night, but my anxiety during the morning, and day time is excruciating. I don't know how to get over my disorder. I was a worrier, but never had an anxiety disorder before. I don't even know how this happened. I think I may have been having small panic attacks, but didn't know what they were, and I never really did anything until things got bad. I got a psychiatrist in August, and saw a few therapists. I have a new one now. How does one get over this. I just want my old self back. I am so scared. Doc says I may be on the slight bipolar spectrum (not bipolar), just that when I take antidepressants, I get too hyper or panicky, and need something to counteract (like a mood stabilizer). Anyways, my anxiety is keeping me from living my liife, and I am miserable every day. Any suggestions, please I am desperate. I am 53 years old. Have a wonderful supportive husband, and an 18 year old daughter. Please help me.
