    I hear you and take comfort in knowing people do over come this, however my anxiety is fear driven, the fear of health, why I don't know (it isn't helped by my current health scare).

    I truly hope this does end well, to many dark days!!

    As anyone ever tried thought therapy to deal with anxiety?
