  1. Thanks everyone it's nice to be able to talk to people that understand because they have the same issues.
  2. Hello everyone my name is Chris i just signed up for this. About two years ago i started having anxiety and panic attacks. Just like everyone else here probably, I thought i was having a heart attack at first and I went to the ER a bunch of times because I didn't know what was happening. Had all the tests done (EKG, chest x-ray, blood work, stress test), and everything came out normal of course. I saw a doctor that diagnosed me with GAD, and put me on anti depressants and anxiety medications, but those just made me feel like a zombie. I was on benzos for over a year, which helped at first but then I built up such a tolerance for them that they didn't help anymore, so i stopped taking them, which caused terrible withdrawal. I ended up in the hospital for a few nights to detox from them and get help with the withdrawal. I'm still on some different meds now, but hopefully soon I will be off all of them. I was supposed to start therapy months ago, but I have been having a tough time getting up the courage to go, so I've been avoiding it. I was hoping maybe this would help, being a little more anonymous.
