    Hello Chilli

    In my experience, the BIG CLUE is to find out what is causing you anxiety.  It can be so many things:




    Money Worries


    Work/Colleagues... and many more!

    Once recognised, you can get help.  I did not find therapy very useful at all.  But this is a personal thing.  For me, meds is the best way, but you must find what suits you.  I think therapy did not help me because I always know what is causing my anxiety.  I was just telling someone else my problems, and did not get much back...then discharged because I KNEW what causes my own anxiety...so was left to take meds and sort myself out!  Not easy!  Good Luck!  whichever route you take.

      Hi, chilli

      We are all different, but I think majority of sufferers who take meds and persevere with them find them helpful in that they help you to relax and get your physical symptoms back on track.  If you are more relaxed, then you should sleep better, your body feels less tense, then you can concentrate on what is causing your anxiety, and how best you can face the causes.  It is not easy and takes a great deal of effort, but long term it is worth it.  Hope this makes sense.  Good Luck!
