I want to know. I have been suffering with anxiety and panic attacks now for about 2 and a half years. I have been on Escitalopram (SSRI antidepressant) for about a year and a half. I have had cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and most of the time I keep anxiety and panic under control. Is this going to last forever though? Will it ever completely go away? My wish is that it will go, like most sufferers do. But, am I a natural born worrier? What ever I do, will I have anxiety with me? Only time will tell. For now, I have it under control and I am enjoying my life with my 6 month old son.
