Unhappy HELP! Anxiety and Frequent Urination

Okay so I'm 20 years old and have been suffering from this disorder for about 4 years now. I believe this was all triggered from this one time I desperately needed to go to the bathroom and my assanine friend would not stop, after that I had sudden urges to go to the bathroom and I would get anxious. I went to my doctor because I didn't think this was anxiety, he did blood test, urine test, and an STD test, all came back negative. There really was no explination, so I decided it would just go away, then (16 at the time) was in high school I started to get some of the most severe panic attacks I've ever had, to this day I have no had panic attacks like those in high school but I still do. Doctor prescribed me xanax and zoloft. The zoloft didn't really change much, the xanax definitely helped BUT I don't exactly take it as directed. I take it basically when I'm going on long trips or things I know will make me anxious, and it stinks because I sometimes get so anxious I tend to go a little overboard on the xanax making me a drugged zombie, however better than sweating and running to the bathroom every 20 min. Its so hard to have a relationship also, I'm very social, frequently go out and have a large group of friends, I usually will talk to a girl then if it gets more serious I drop her because of my anxiety, if they want to go on a road trip or go somewhere far, I can't because what if I have to go to the bathroom? I'm not sure if its my bladder or my anxiety that controls me, I know I have a smaller bladder though, if i'm at my house drinking a 12-pack with a friend I will go on average about 4 more times than he would off 6 beers. I think its just a vicious cycle of anxiety and a small bladder and the anxiety just makes it 10 times worse. <edit> I've come up with ridiculous excuses to leave and go to the bathroom. I just NEED help, I'm going to college, and I'm growing up, I want to have a good career and a wife and family. Its so hard to be normal, however when everyone from the outside looks at me they see nothing wrong. This looms on me everyday this is 4 years now? I've been off the meds for about 2, I'm going to the doctors again, I think I'll take the xanax again, but I need something more! Has anyone been cured?
