I've been suffering from anxiety my whole life with periods of acute, debilitating anxiety. At this point I have been really struggling for about 6 months.  I've tried so many ssri's without much luck and am currently on viibryd, which is not working for me either.  The only thing that helps minimally is klonopin. I am getting hopeless that my symptoms will never end.  My biggest complaint is near constant nausea, loss of appetite, and a feeling of edginess that doesn't go away.  I wake up every day with a racing heart (usually after an anxiety dream) and feeling nauseous.  Occasionally I will feel better by the end of the day, but not always.  I am here just looking for support and want to know that I am not alone in feeling this way.  I have a great family support system, but I can't seem to get through this.  I am doing everything I can: meditation, yoga, exercise, seeing a psychologist, group therapy, etc..  Of course all of this is also making me feel depressed.  I don't ever feel like doing anything and don't enjoy doing much of anything.  I don't even have interest in watching tv shows I used to like.  I would love any advice or encouragement from others who have gotten through rough times.  I am also a teacher and can typically get through the day when I am working.  I am much worse on the weekends and on breaks when I am not distracted by work.  Right now with holidays I am on a break and feeling terrible.  I am worried that I won't be able to pull it together to go back to work in a week.
