Merely listing your symptoms isn't going to exorcise them and lead to your recovery. Yes, it's good to get your symptoms off your chest and compare those symptoms with others going through the same experience. Specially when someone is new to anxiety and doesn't know what's hit them.
But forgive me for saying it but there are a lot of people who are longer term sufferers who don't actually appear to be doing much constructive to effect their recovery. Not everybody but some. Simply recording whether you had a good day or a bad day diary fashion doesn't get anybody any further forward.
A lot of these anxiety sufferers have a deep fear of becoming addicted to medication and possible side effects. Anxiety about taking anti-anxiety medications is itself a symptom of anxiety. So that leaves talking cures and doing some research into self help methods.
Whatever course or combination is chosen it's important to have some form if escape plan because waiting for the sugar plum fairy to come along and wave her wand and make it better could involve a very long wait.
