hi! i'm new here, i was doing some research on how to deal with anxiety and depression and i found this forum. i go to nursing school, but every time out of nowhere i get this horrible sensation of fear and stress and i just feel like i can't breath, i get cold and i feel my heart pounding in my throat. i started taking tryptophan and i was thinking about switching to 5HTP with where OTC treatments. i'm currently thinking about going to a therapist but i'm having some issues with my health insurance. does anybody have any advice on what to do when i get these anxiety attacks?
