Wondering When Life Will Go Back To Being Enjoyable.

I'm 15 years old and have struggled with anxiety for most of my life. I've always been an anxious kid, and would occasionally experience an anxiety attack. For the most part, it was bearable. But for the past few months, my anxiety has gotten very severe. I wake up feeling incredibly nervous, and during the night I have AT LEAST two severe anxiety attacks. My doctor prescribed paxil CR right now in hopes that it will help with my anxiety, but so far I see no changes. I just want life to go back to the way it used to be. Lately, I've been so withdrawn from everyone for fear that I might have an anxiety attack in front of someone. I don't like going out to places. I've tried to talk to my friends about this, but none of them seem to understand. One person even asked me, "What's an anxiety attack?" I know they care and they want to help, but I feel like they just don't understand what it's like. I end up feeling so alone in this sometimes, but I know I'm not. I know there are other teens out there with an anxiety disorder. So I came here in hopes of finding someone to talk to.
