This is new to me and im not sure where to start. I am just looking for someone I can relate to. I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety and clinical depression. I was prescribed xanax and lexapro but eventually stopped taking them because the lexapro did nothing for me and i became so dependant on the xanax that i would take 2 at a time and my panic attacks were so frequent that i was just popping them left and right. I am currently prescription free but its taking a toll on me. I dont know if i was just prescribed something that the dr i seen just thought i needed or if there is something else that will actually help me. The xanax would calm me down but basically just make me feel numb until it wore off and then it was back to my usual racing thoughts. Its so bad that i vomit every morning when i wake up from the mere thought of the stress i know i will endure at work, i constantly sweat even in a cold office, i cannot focus on one single task, my mind is consumed with playing out worse case scenarios from getting robbed to my car flying off a bridge that i am literally on edge all day and night. My mother was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as schizophrenia and im wondering if maybe i was misdiagnosed.
