This is the first time I am writing on this board. I am so glad that there is such a board for anxiety. I have been suffering with anxiety/panic dissorders now for over 8 years. I did go to see a doctor about it, but I just could not afford the visits. My anxiety is mostly work related and it's affecting my personal relationship as well. Not to mention my physical health.
I am afraid to take any medications for it. I guess I am afraid of side affects. I tried to work on it without meds, but after a few bouts with hyperventilating, shortness of breath, heavy crying, and thinking the whole world is coming down on me, maybe I should look into some kind of medication or even just to talk to someone. Anyone have any kind of advice as to how do I get started with some kind of treatment? Trying to do it on my own, just has not been working. Thanks. Jan
