I haven't been experiencing anxiety for too long, it's been about 5 months now, but it's felt like years. During the first months, it was terrible. I honestly thought I was dying and was really concerned about my health. Mentally I was losing it, and physically I had no energy to do anything and was in constant pain. I tried prozac 10mg a day for about a month, and had to stop because of the side effects I was having (shaky hands and palpitations). Right after stopping the prozac, I was prescribed propanolol 10mg 3x a day, and it did help with the palpitations A LOT. I was on propanolol for about a week and then I decided to slowly stop taking it. I have now been without meds for almost three weeks and I don't feel like the person I was 6 months ago, but I definitely feel like I'm at 80%, which is amazing since a few months ago I was at my lowest.
I am only posting this, because there is hope for everyone! It may take a few months, it may take years, but please don't give up and never think that there is no way out. Anxiety is definitely controllable.
I have made a lot of changes in my life and my eating habits and I'm sure that this is also a big part of why I am feeling better.
I hope that everyone is well, and continues to make progress.
