It's not ununusual for me in a given week to have one day where the anxiety is there constantly. As soon as the Xanax wears off, there it is. What's that about?
I'm one of the anxiety sufferers that do not have actual triggers. I can be doing a leisure activity on the weekend like planting flowers, and feel an attack coming on. I have a very stressful job, but some days the anxiety will only peak its head twice during 8 hours, and some days its the entire day until I fall asleep.
Do doctors recognize persistent anxiety? Or is there even such a thing? This anxiety disorder thing is really bizarre. I just don't get it.
I called a psychiatrist today and asked if they work with anxiety disorders and was told "no".
Wait till I tell my family doctor this since after 3 years he is suggesting I see one.
