    I feel like I'm going crazy.

    I'm 19 years old. About 3 months ago I was diagnosed with anxiety after my mother had a stroke and a heart attack. At first my panic attacks were mild. Then they gradually got worse. For about a week now I have been feeling extremely odd. I'm not sure if it is anxiety or something else. My mind feels blank. I've been having vision problems. I constantly worry about my health. I literally never stop thinking about it. I am taking anxiety medicine and it doesn't seem to be working. Not sure if anyone else has went through this or not. I'm starting to feel like I'm going crazy. I can't even hardly sit down, I'm always on edge.
