Been having anxiety on and off for 7 years now and I'm 19 years old. I've been counselling for it, distracted myself during the day with going to places, being around people or watching videos, art and any other hobbies but, I've recently started having another episode since Sunday where I never really get panic attacks but I've had two in one day that day. this is probably the 4th or 5th episode I've had within my 7 years.
I'm struggling socially at work and when I'm here it feels like the hours are really long and unbearable. The only time I feel improvement is when I focus hard, don't talk or and take no breaks until I leave. It feels crippling, half the time I cant stop crying for a reason or no reason at all. I'm unsure and a little bit frighted to try medication as I've gone this far already with out them and how they effect certain people into making them like zombies or addicted to them.
I've overcome my anxiety through my past episodes but now my situations has changed and my emotional are pretty much all over the place. I hate waiting to get over my anxiety naturally and i want the process to go faster which worries me more. I'm scared of myself and the world around me and I'm not sure what to do anymore. If anybody has any advice please feel free to leave a comment, thankyou.
