I just found this site late last night while staying up at panicking for no good reason. I was diagnosed with GAD about 6 months ago when I turned 30 after a series of heart palpitations, trouble breathing, etc. - mostly caused by work stress, home stress and skeletons in the closet that have come out in therapy. I've been going to therapy for a year now for depression-like symptoms (which turned out to be a serious of major anxiety attacks about to happen), working on it with CBT (trying anyhow), taking Prozac for about 6 months now and take Xanax whenever I feel an attack coming on. I can't say I'm making fantastic progress but I'm assuming it takes time.
My wife is pretty supportive but I've been pretty private about it with friends worrying of their reactions so I'm hoping this forum might help me realize I'm not alone! I think I'm really hoping to come to terms with myself more than have other people come to terms with me
