i went to a psychiatrist today and basically told me what others told me...this is genetic, not the classic symptoms or causes of anxiety, and gets a very puzzled look when i tell him all my side-effects i got from the medications i tried. i told him as bad as my anxiety got i stuck with it and never let the fear run my life and he said i "was a tough cookie." so he wouldn't prescribe me meds (which i really don't want anyway) and to try cognitive therapy (which he tells me i'm already basically doing). so, is this good or bad...i wish i could take meds that help, but i either feel drugged or strung out, so i only take xanax when needed...that one i can handle the lowest dosage which i usually cut in half. so, here i am. i do feel much better, but damn, whenever i go to the dr. they don't know because my anxiety is seemingly so weird and random. huh. oh well....
