Anxiety board

Hi There - last nite I slept. Don't want to jinx myself though. I didn't take Xanax as I have a feeling it's causing me problems, so I tool 2.5mg of Valium, plus I drank Camomile tea (spell check?) and luckily, I didn't wake up with a "start." I also live in NY and yesterday I met my daughter and being in NYC we walked a lot so therefore I am thinking the exercise was a good thing. I live in a suburb of NY and walking isn't as much fun as it is in the Big Apple. I guess if I lived there, walking would be my #1 priority. So therefore, maybe exercise is a valuable tool in the effort to combat anxiety. Has anyone found that it works? I hate relying on medication. There are just so many awful side effects that cause WORSE ANXIETY. Go figure?:p
