Hello everyone =). I'll just start off with my story; I have an anxiety disorder w/ agoraphobia. I first got it when I was about 8 years old, it lasted a few months then completely disappeared. It re-surfaced again when I was about fourteen years old because of a drug incident. I was given Lexapro to take every day and Clonzepam to take when needed. For the past four years, since it resurfaced, it has been on and off for me. I remember tenth grade, I felt great and hardly ever got any anxiety attacks. Junior year was okay, I got it more often towards the end of the year, but this Senior year and summer before college it has just been ridiculous. 

I find myself thinking really crazy and ridiculous thoughts all the time that freak me out. I get scared watching horror movies and other kinds of movies. V for Vendetta gave me an anxiety attack. I'm currently on 20mg of Lexapro and I take half a Clonzepam when needed, but I really don't want to have my meds increased. I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same type of anxiety as me or knows how I can help myself learn to manage it better without increasing medication? I heard good schedule, diet and exersize help.. has that worked for anyone? Or does anybody have any other suggestions?  Any responces will be greatly appreciated, it's really starting to effect my life again and I'm desperate. =\
