I suffer with bipolar depression and anxiety but recently have had overwhelming anxiety I think bc of having a hormone imbalance(pcos). We don't have the money for medication for any of my problems so I do a lot of self medicating. Recently I've had a rise in all my symptoms and that makes me anxious and that makes my symptoms even worse. Ex: biting my cheeks until they bleed, zoning out while driving, losing interest in all hobbies (reading art, music) becoming irritable, unable to focus, foggy memory over recent things, unable to be alone for too long ( or else I go into a weird anxious depressive state), etc. Thinking about my health sends my anxiety into over drive because there isn't anything I can do to stabilize myself and I believe my hormone imbalance is worsening my mental health, but again there isn't anything I can do to fix it. My anxiety is starting to cause more issues like unable to sleep even though I have important things to do or unable to focus on my classes/ disrupting classmates from constant fidgety movements. I guess I'm looking for a way to cope with my anxiety because I haven't really found a bulletproof method.
