Hi ZELDA. Never heard of anyone going crazy or losing it in anxiety, and I have considerable experience. You may think you are but thinking is not knowing. I always feel that anxiety should not be categorised as a 'mental' illness, although it is in the mind. Unlike many serious mental illnesses it is curable given the right treatment and a willingness to get well. Anxiety can become a habit like everything else. I did think at first I was going crazy, but my dear old counsellor soon put that right. In anxiety we are like a mouse in a maze. Looking for a way out but not always finding it. This leads to frustration. Take it easy. YOU ARE NOT GOING CRAZY. OK? Got it?
