What is your age and sex? Females who have never experienced crippling anxiety can be over come during certain hormonal transitions in their life. (Don't flame me, I am a female and I know this can happen and this is no statement on the strength or weakness of female character - it is just biologically factual)
Also for either sex if you have moved to a different climate then you lived in for a majority of your life - differences in the quality of light can effect your brain chemistry in a whole panarama of ways.
Lastly, perhaps your body is signaling something you aren't aware of on a cognitive level?

I don't post too often, but thought I'd tell my story.
I've had issues with anxiety for many years. Despite how difficult and mentally exhausting it was, I could function. I never felt that I needed medication. In January, my car was totaled in a very violent car accident and the anxiety has been unbearable since. Fear of driving and about dieing in an accident have always somewhat affected me, but now the thoughts can sometimes be obsessive. On to the point of my long-winded post:
I very recently started taking Xanax, because I was exhausted by the constant nagging of my irrational fears. I suppose they do help. Having never known what "normal" feels like, I do feel different. I suppose it takes some getting used to.
Thanks for listening.

Who cares? What are they gonna do with that info?
Maybe you don't understand any of this, but it helps some people to just get stuff off their chest. And yes, this is anonymous, maybe not to hackers and site ownership, but what would they do with that?
Tell me what my real name is and where I live...........
Can't? Well that's anonymous.
