You learn well!: If a bad experience helps you to change your behavior, you can feel pretty good about your learning skills. This may be a good signal to find a therapist to talk with. Anxiety can motivate making improvements and if you nip it in the bud, it can help you instead of hurting you. Don't ignore it or it will just become more intense to get your attention. Relaxing should be relaxing, not stressful!

Change Treatment: I would suggest seeking out better treatment for your conditions. Medical marijuana is not a legitimate treatment for anxiety or insomnia.
