    xanax is a med and a very potent one.  do you have a self healing plan, like when I am anxious I will take ten deep breaths, or I will take a walk or I will journal . . . what are you eating? What you put in your mouth effects your whole body; crap in crap out.  what helps you?

    Try yoga. It is really very useful with breathing and anxiety. You need something to goto when the anxiety revs up. Logic kind if flys out the windiw but at least you would have all the teachings and benifits of yoga to guide you to self calming.
