About Me: Female, 34, Goshen, IN, member since May 2010
I'm 30 and married. Not employed but going to online college (4th year in Psych). I've had anxiety that started as far back as I can remember in my childhood. I think it stemmed from having an alcoholic father and never knowing if he was going to come home and be nice o
[More]r be mean. I remember sitting in my room as a child listening to him and my Mom fight and being so anxious and fearful. Mom is my best friend and she has anxiety and nervousness as well so I think that my anxiety could be a learned behavior and ingrained emotion. Sometimes it is low level and other times it's high and I have panic attacks. I'm on Celexa, have been for years, but I'm not sure if it works anymore. Thinking of having my Dr. switch me to Lexapro which I've taken before and that seemed to work.
