So how would you describe your anxiety? Not a panic attack just anxiety. For me it's like a strong unsettling feeling in my chest and it's uncomfortable my pulse is usually always a little faster during these phases but nothing like a panic attack. I have Xanax and it's the lowest dose and I can break them in half but since being prescribed them I've only taken it once. I don't know why I'm so afraid to take it but I am. Something has to give though I hate feeling this way!!
