Hi, I've had severe anxiety my ENTIRE life. From horrible panick attacks when I was younger, to crazy uncontrollable thoughts that I have now. I worry about everything under the sun, and some days I feel like I'm crazy. Some days I'm depressed and some days I'm fine. I've been in and out of therapy since I was 15. I just don't know where else to turn, and I feel like if I just give medication a chance, it could possibly change my life. Lexapro works for my sister. You think it will work for me? I'm so terrified of side affects and not feeling like myself. Not to mention, part of my anxiety is that I'm scared of taking medication. To the point that I couldn't even take more than one ibuprofen at a time. I would like to hear how it worked for other people, and how well it helped. Please I don't wanna hear horror stories because that will push me away from taking this medicine. I just want to be happy. HELP!
