200mg of caffeine and me.

Help me understand the role caffeine might play in moderate to severe anxiety, intrusive thoughts (that I'm in danger) and occasional panic attacks. I'm perplexed by elimination of what I consider to be relatively low caffeine intake. Interested in others' experiences. [more inside]

Trying to understand why my anxiety/depression spikes

What might cause a marked spike in my anxiety/depression symptoms from 5pm-8pm (almost to the minute)? In terms of body chemistry, sleep/wake cycle, hormones, etc what does my body have going on during this time? [more inside]

Help me to help me

Several months ago I had a bad anxiety attack. Since then, I have had an extremely heightened sense of self-awareness and have even become a bit agoraphobic (I understand this to be common after an attack). Common situations/activities that once felt natural, effortless even enjoyable (driving, shopping, taking kids to the park) can now induce panic because I over analyze everything. How can I return to my "normal" level of self-awareness and learn to go with the flow? Meds? Mind hacks? Cognitive therapy?

Soothe the savage beast

I am looking for other songs about anxiety and panic attacks along the lines of The Fear by Pulp or Overkill by Men At Work.
