unmedicated

  • How to deal with anxiety without medication

    I have been professionally diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder, and my parents don't really understand it or take it seriously. Because of that, they don't understand the struggle I go through almost every day, the anxiety I feel even when going to school or talking to my friends or doing activities that I enjoy. I was wondering if anyone knows any ways to handle anxiety on this level without medication? My brother has ADD and he is heavily medicated, and my parents have a ton of stress dealing with that. I am supposed to see a psychologist to help with my needs, but I have only seen her once, and that was to be diagnosed. I want to be able to go through life and know what it's like to not have anxiety about every little thing, without medication or hypnosis and stuff like that. Are there any methods you have for dealing with anxiety without medicine?
  • I'm stuck

    Lately I've been feeling stuck, like I'm not improving. I'm not getting worse either. But it seems like I've been doing better. But I'm not sure if it's because I am getting better and the working on myself is actually doing something. Or I'm only feeling like I'm doing better because the main trigger for my anxiety and depression is momentarily gone. I just don't know what to do. The working on myself is expressing my emotions and feelings more, and trying to reach out to my friends. I've been figuring out what Happens during an attack and what helps. I know myself pretty well in that area. But I want to be able to do more then just coping with it. I want it to get less. I only have no idea how
