    I feel you. I was anxiety free for 12 years (so I do know it's possible) but I've had a relapse. Since a few bad panic attacks the past couple of days, I have been in constant anxiety and even scared to leave the house. Are you on meds?

      I'm on citalopram and it worked very quickly and successfully for me 13 years ago. However, I have recently been on accutane which apparently can absolutely deplete your serotonin levels, so they think that's what I've had a relapse. I've upped the dose on the meds, so hopefully they kick in soon. Is your anxiety constant?

      That's exactly how I feel. Morning is the worst because you wake from the ignorance f sleep into the anxious reality. And the definite feeling that I won't get over it; that it's beyond my control. But I need to remember that I've beaten it before and I can beat it again.

      I keep trying to tell myself that too and it is very hard to get up and just go when all you want to do is just sit and your trigger is so stupid that you can't believe it and you beat yourself up for it
