Anxiety/Panic attacks for me started in January 1989 after my mother was hospitalized.
It progress into two nights a month where I couldn't sleep (I was still 13), but got better until college when stress of education started up.
After college in 1999, depression entered and I thought I could make friends in church....fast forward to 2004 and I left that church nearly having a nervous breakdown - spiritually abusive church! I discovered that I had Social Anxiety DIsorder at that point. Doctors thought I was bipolar, but a week of lithium proved them wrong - severe OCD lol. Medicine investigation led to Paxil and I was on that until 2018....transitioned to Cymbalta due to weight gain and broken teeth from bruxism.
