No idea where to begin

Hello, just joined. I'm over 30 years old, I've never been diagnosed yet I've been struggling with primarily anxiety issues for pretty much the last 20 years, but I've never sought help. Yes, I'm the "suffer in silence" type. I've finally decided that it's not something I can continue to pretend isn't a real problem nor can I keep living every day waiting for the good days. I feel very overwhelmed by the whole process, I don't even know where to begin. I'm not a person who is interested in therapy, nor do I have the time nor the ability to do that due to daily obligations and obstacles. I would ideally like to just try medication and see how it goes. I don't know how to go about doing this and I was hoping someone could give me some insight into the process to ease my mind a bit about it and help me get started, also some advice on the matter could be helpful. Thank you.

Do you have a regular family Dr? That might be a good place to start if you don't want to see a therapist - sending luck and healing your way!


Hi im Paul... I think this is a good idea to start exploring possible solutions to anxiety. I think seeking a professionals advice is the best place to start but if you feel you would like to chat about your anxieties then this is a good place. Do you have any 'triggers' which are coursing anxiety or is there something going on with your life at the moment?
