I have been dealing with anxiety and panic for about 12 years and I have been on Paxil CR in the past and it has worked out well with minimal side effects. I chose to go off of it when I became pregnant with my son 2years ago... Since last Fall my anxiety has returned with panic! I started seeing a therapist last fall but this process seems to be taking forever! I have self help books and a really great friend but my biggest downfall that keeps me in this circle of anxiety to panic is that I continuously "check for trouble" from the minute that I wake up until I go to bed. Instead of things becoming more managable they are becoming less managable!! I am afraid to go back on Paxil since the withdrawl was horrible and took two months, otherwise it did it's job. So, I am wondering if anyone has any advice on how to train my brain to not "look for anxiety" it keeps sucking me back in!!!
