I have been suffering with anxiety for the past 4 years, brought on by a bout of the medical condition vertigo im not sure which is worse, but it is comforting to know that other people have the same feelings (you feel like you are alone) especially the two other bloggers that mentioned the feeling of going mad. I get that quite regular and it is awful. I take diazepam occaisonally from my doctor but they dont like you to be on it for long periods as its highly addictive!! I go it alone most days when I have it but have also been taking calm tablets. Not sure if they are effective but they seem to help in some way. Hope we all can conquer this at some point and have some peace of mind.
