I stumbled upon this webmd community last night and I skimmed through a few of your comments. In the few comments that I read, I was already feeling glad to have found something where people experience the same symptoms as me. To give a small introduction I am 27 years old, generalized anxiety, just started cipralex for the 2nd time. Have been on Wellbutrin before. At this point in time I'm not doing so well but am willing to fight. With me, some depression tends to follow any anxious episode. One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. That's all we can do. Hope to hear from you guys soon.

I just reread what you said and something resonated with me. You wrote "at this point in time I'm not doing so well but am willing to fight." Right now I'm in a similar position. I was in a very dark place this weekend, but am finally getting to the point where I can at least think that fighting is a good thing to do, rather than giving up to my difficulties. I wish the best to you, and hope that you can keep on. Always remember that you are worth it.

thank you for your encouragement! Much appreciated.

its hard to describe the feeling of psychological growth, its so multidimensional, but i love giving into it, it feels so good. I love learning new lessons and applying things in my life that keep the anxiety at bay...truthfully i feel i will always have this problem, in fact, I think it's very dangerous to think we can change completely from who we really are, but if we can embrace it, but keep it at a tolerable level, i think id be very happy with that...

how about you, you mentioned you werent doing so well a few days ago. Are you still fighting?

all the best
