It wasn't that long ago i was very desperate for relief of anxiety
I Had been to all the therapists, doctors, psychologists, psych's, meditation, CBT and nothing ever worked for me. It was frustrating at the best of times, panic attacks and not feeling comfortable in myself those days are over now. Thank God and I'm serious thank God I'm not religious but somehow the fear was taken away from me at some stage and am grateful for that.
At times it was hard to take public transport, walk down my street, stop the racing thoughts of doom. I developed an alcohol dependency as it is mental as well as physical and if I didn't drink my mind was in doubt. I doubted myself, my life and everything about it needed in depth thought and analysis on everything. I bought every stupid book on anxiety and nothing ever worked.
I decided to come off alcohol as it was giving me a lot of grief and ill-health effects and then was diagnosed with major depression as well as alcoholism and anxiety and social disorders. I started taking anti-depressants which I always didn't like taking for some reason. I thought they didn't work in my experience but got onto one that treated anxiety as well and it worked. I am grateful for that as I live a normal life now without the fear and constant worry.
Just thought I would share that I was down all my life and found my solution I am 30 and happy with life now instaed of fearing it. Hope everyone on this forum finds there peace as I know the struggle all to well.
Never looking back.
