Anxiety and Depression Support

Meds and therapy??

So, last night I had an absolutely awful anxiety attack from feeling sick and ended up puking. I'm really tired of feeling this way so I decided to finally force myself to make an appointment with a doctor to possibly get some medication to help with my anxiety. I also might need a therapist but I'm not sure yet, I'm just going to wait and see what the doctor says. I'm quite worried that I'll get sick again though or that the medications will have horrible side effects and I won't know what to do. Any advice?

Hello. It's good ur getting a Dr they're better suited to discuss the side effects and other concerns with you. The Dr too can guide you toward benefits of therapy. Therapy is a good way to learn about yourself and coping skills. I am in therapy and have been for many years. I also take medication. If u take meds, be sure to let your dr know if you do feel and strange side effects. Also tell them your concerns. I wish you the best!

Therapy can b scarey as anything new. I've had to face alot of hard truths about myself to make changes or accept myself as is. I still am learning about myself and using healthy skills. It is not easy! I am a food addict, but I have not binged for a month and a half. Im having a heck of a time dealing with the emotional aspects of addiction. I never knew how emotions really played in addiction, just the physical. After years of therapy, a person is an ever growing learning experience.
