This past year has been a rough one - i was diagnosed with hyper thyrodism and Graves disease , spent three months with insomnia and lost my dad. All this brought on terrible anxiety and have being a therapist for a year. he prescribed lexapro and I feel it works but the only thing that seems to to really keep me calm is xanax which i take 1/2 mlg three times a day. I have been taking this for 11 months and it is a big help. My big issue is I am always looking for the anxiety to come back even when I am calm- Does anyone else have that issue and if so what do you do to get this monster out of your head?
My work has suffered because i can not stay focused all day.
