I was wondering.. Im kind of new to the whole have anxiety attacks.. I just started getting them last winter-ish. I was freaking out. Thought I was going to have a heart attack.. Went to the ER and they told me everything was fine. I was wondering if there was some people here that I could chat with occasionally.. Its 3AM and I have to work in the morning. Cant fall asleep because I feel like Im going to throw up.. and feel nervous, freaked out, etc.. Been physically sick on and off for a month. I take Xanax.. But think I should maybe start taking Paxil.. or something that will solve the anxiety in the long run. I cant stand feeling trapped and sick all the time anymore. I would really appreciate it.. if there was someone that knew what I was going through so that we could talk about it.. The Doctor has told me there is nothing wrong with me.. Still I feel like Im going to die.. It scares the **** out of me on a daily basis.

I get the same way. I work myself up with my thoughts so much it feels like my heart is going to explode and I feel sick in every way you can feel sick. I have to talk myself down in my head so that I really don't have a heart attack. I stay up until 6 or 7 in the morning everyday because I just can't sleep. I have been on several different pills, even xanax. Xanax may mellow you out for a short time but it's never the permanent solution. I myself am begining to think there is never going to be a solution. I have never taken Paxil but I have taken zoloft, depakote, and celexa. The best one was Celexa for about the first 2 months I felt happiness and contentment but it began to fade as I got used to the pills. All of them ended up making me feel like a Zombie in the end so I quit taking them. I've been to counseling in the past and it was no different than talking with my best friend about my anxiety/depression. It really does help to talk with someone who understands. I try my hardest to occupy my time with anything I can to avoid anxiety (the computer really helps).

get off the drugs and detoxify your system. xanax will screw up your mind.
