Hello. My name is Dustin. I'm 23 years old, and i have been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks since i was 15. At this point it almost feels as if my brain is conditioned to be prone to fear and anxiety. I avoid normal activities such as vacations, traveling outside of my comfort area, and basically any stiuation where i feel i may have a panic attack.
My panic has become self perpetuated to the point that now the idea of having a panic attack gives me more anxiety than the thought of putting myself in a situation that may make me anxious.
I have seen a few councelors off and on for some time. I recently started seeing a new one.
I was refered to see a doctor in the same building today. When i saw him he prescribed me Paxil (10 mg). After reading the reviews, there is no way i can do this to myself. I have never had a drug dependency and will not put myself through that.
Coudl anyone share some tips or stories of how you leared to cope with, manage, or overcome your anxiety/panic? I would like to find something long term and take my life back.
