Thanks for the post, John.

My partner suffers also from anxiety but has improved since I met her - though she says that she still always wakes up in the morning tense inside. I believe that she also suffers from low self esteem. She was prescribed diazapam but doesn't take them now. She carries them 'just in case'. Her art helps her a great deal. It seems to go back to her childhood - East Prussian refugee, illness and a bitter, unsympathetic and severe father.

I hope that your wife continues making an improvement.
