Having a very rough time today


My anxiety has been causing me physical pain lately. Today I went to the doctor and found out that I may have a heart issue that my anxiety and a medicine I was taking caused. I constantly feel like I'm just going to die one day soon. And If i did I would not be content with the life I have lived so far. I am only 20. The last 2 years I have been seeking help but am still suffering. I found that this app does calm me down but at times it also makes me more anxious. Sometimes it's hard for me to hear that some of us of been depressed for 20+ years and it's still going. I can't imagine another few years like this.

Anxiety is awful... however treatable... as my doc told me before she retired 20 yrs ago... anxiety is like being diabetic.. I will always take pills, with proper diet n sleep n exercise it's manageable... so that's the way I think of it... as I hate pills... anxiety is fear- based.. councilling helps... talk therapy is the best... hang in there

Thank you so much
