Could I be healed of anxiety and depression??

I went to my psychiatrist and told him how much better I feel now that I’m OFF medication. He looked at me puzzled and told me that that is very rare and he doesn’t hear that often, but it’s great. He asked me if I would like him to do anything for me, & I said “No.”. He was very shocked, once again. I feel better than I have in a very long time. I’m starting to think that maybe I didn’t really need the meds, & once I started taking them, it just made me worse. Idk if it was just the type of medication, or if I just didn’t need it at all & maybe was just going through the rollercoaster of life. Either way, I’m happy, I’m healthy, and I’m medicine free.

Amen.

Thank you Lord for healing me. ❤️

SimpleMe87, I'm so glad to hear you are feeling good since off your medications and that you have left anxiety behind. It happens. I don't think that it's you never needed medication but the fact is that it did it's job and no longer needed. That happened to me as well. There is no way that I could have done it without meds at the beginning of my anxiety. There is a time and a place were medication is necessary in order to not stay stuck in fear. We learn to go forward while on meds and adapt other methods of conquering anxiety issues. When the meds have done their job, we wean off them and feel better because we are no longer medicated, we are back in control of our life as well as our brain has healed and is manufacturing the chemicals on it's own.

Embrace life and live each day to the fullest. :) xx Congratulations!

Hi SimplyMe87,

Congratulations on getting to the point in your recovery of being drug free. We know how much effort is required.

I love Agora1's post.

My doctor has always reminded me to ask a trusted friend to keep an eye out for me, even when feeling better. A friend often notices signs of relapse before the patient does.

Maybe it because you’re happy and I am happy to hear that. Maybe you have found that inner peace. Still looking for mine. 🙏🏼
