I was in a car wreck about a year ago, i was with my wife and at the time our 1 year old daughter. Wasn't that bad of a wreck, a little scary with some stiff necks. 3 days later woke up in the middle of the night having an anxiety attack. Went to the er. I really haven't had too many panic attacks, but just the fear or dying, going crazy, just some fears. The physical conditions suck also. I was put on Paxil about 2 weeks after wreck. I was on 10mg a day for about 2 months. It made me feel "normal" again for about 2 more months until i had to drive back to where the wreck happened. I thought it was ptsd, but was told it was not. So i got back on paxil, up the dose to 20mg for about 3 months then it stopped working, or actually made me worse, not anxiety worse but unbearably tired. So i'm on Wellbutrin now and it seems to work sometimes and not others. I just want to get back to "normal". I've had the perfect life pretty much. I've lost a few close people a few years ago but that is it. My wife is awsome and very understandable with this. My whole family is awsome. I just want to know will it ever go away, can i be normal without the help of medication. Regular life stresses don't bother me that much. Just this stupid "mental illness" which i hate those words. I'm new to this site and it is awsome to see other people with my problems. I hope to get to know you all.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
