I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and currently take Lexapro 20mg. I was on it before for 3 years. I had weaned off it with my Doctors blessing until May 2015 when the following occured. Here is my issue which is driving me nuts ! I have waited and waited for a position with a local agency. I took civil service exam after exam to stay eligible.. Well my number came up. That night I had a panic attack which I have never had. I walked around for days with that scared feeling you get before you board a scary ride. Couldnt sleep.. was a nervous wreck. I finally pulled out of the running for the job. My anxiety had won. Well two and a half months have passed and I have another shot.. I hemmed and hawed about saying I was interested in fear I would feel the way I did before.. Well I ended up telling the employer today I was interested. A couple hours later I am wondering if I made the right choice and feeling anxious. How do I combat this ? Am I alone here ?
