What should I do about having anxiety and panic attacks about worrying all the time over losing everything I worked very hard for. I'm on meds and trying different one to see what will work for me. We haven't found nothing yet. I would like to stop hurting all the time. Please help me.

karmady - It would love to give you the right answers, but I must be your twin. I am on Wellbutrin and Xanax. I know it's been proven that Xanax can be addictive, but I have taken if for probably 20 years now and it is the only thing that will help my anxiey. Can I ask what meds you've been on? I have anxiety along with depression, and have been told "I have a Master's Degree in Worrying". I worry about things that haven't even happened yet. I am divorced after 29 years of marriage and working a respectable and what I consider an important job (working with Special Needs), but only make a little above minimum and it is rough. I don't have any other income whatsoever and I am petrified of losing this job, as we had a meeting with our Regional Director and he said the Government is cutting the funding consistently for this particular field.

May I ask how old you are? I am a 56 year old female. I just wrote in another post that I would just like to smile again and be happy. I am with you 100% and know exactly how you feel.

I always lived by "one day at a time", but I have gotten to where I have to go "one minute at a time".

You take care of You!!!! We all need each other here.
My best to you - - -- Janna
