Yes. With medication. Stay on it. Try to go off and if it comes back, go on it again. I'm too busy to sit around trying to figure out why and too many people deoend on me for me to be worried. With me, I am convinced it is hormonal or chemical vs from negative thinking.
medication can, regardless of what you believe in, help with reducing anxiety and depression to the point where you can think "straight" again, and start making "better" decisions
Google Dialectical Behaviour Therapy. It teaches coping strategies for anxiety. Lots of information online.
Yes....it took me a while but I did cognitive therapy in conjunction with an antidepressant. I learned to control the anxiety and I learned what the real core issue was regarding my depression.
Likewise! I think the therapy is also an important part of it.
I highly recommend it because anxiety and depression can take up such a huge part of our lives !
Yes, it certainly can Wicked.
Yes, I do currently take anti-depressants. Medication isn't exactly a Band-Aid solution, it's there to help you cope in an easier way while you try to sort stuff out.. so that it's less heavy on you.
Yes, I have.
Like Origin, I got on the RIGHT medication. It wasn't easy because finding what works for you can be a rough road. However, it sure beats feeling so awful.
