an elephant on my chest

I have been dealing with an uncomfortable amount of anxiety for months now. I went off Lexapro to try Cymbalta, and Cymbalta was largely uneffective in managing my anxiety and depression (it didn't help the migraines, either). I am back on Lexapro and working my way up to my former dose. In the meantime, I find that I am often experiencing racing thoughts, grinding in my stomach, an overall feeling of dread, and this huge weight on my chest. I think I have finally convinced myself that it is time to go back to therapy. I cannot keep trying to deal with this on my own.
