I decided to make this thread with TRiPPY's permission because I'm often too weary to talk about my problems online. I'll make an exception here because this could be a learning experience with those who currently suffer from an anxiety disorder. Whether it be generalized anxiety, panic attacks, agoraphobia, insomnia, or everything in between, I'm sure we can all engage in meaningful dialogue about our condition.
Personally, I've been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for the past three years, and I have found little relief. I have only been able to find short term relief through intense exercise, and that's it. I tried a couple anti-depressants but they didn't work at all, and while benzos such as Xanax provide temporary relief, they don't get rid of the problem entirely. Plus, they negatively affect your digestive system, so it's not recommended to stay on them for too long.
Does anyone else here have any experience with anxiety? If you are a current or ex-sufferer, please feel free to share your thoughts or advice.
