: I have depression and anxiety disorder. I notice that I frighten easily, startle easily when someone appears when I wasn't expecting them. Then I scream. I don't know how to control it. My mother thinks she heard of some type of vitamin or supplement that would help reduce this reaction. I would appreciate any input in this area.
Hi. I don't have any advice for you, but I just want to tell you I know how you feel. I've been that way since I was a kid, and since being diagnosed with depression in adulthood, it's gotten worse. Some people think it's funny to scare me - but it is very embarrassing.
