Hi, I'm new here. I have only recently started experiencing anxiety. It started just a few years ago. I never had anxiety before and then out of nowhere it started up. The doctor I went to said that I was just stressed and that there was nothing else wrong with me. The medication he prescribed (for the life of me I can't remember the name of it - it's been a few years) made me like a zombie so I stopped taking them. Shortly after that I was anxiety free for a few years and now again, out of nowhere, it's hit again. This time seems worse than I remember and I can't seem to shake it. I'm to my wits end and can't seem to get away.
What are some techniques that others use to help cope with anxiety?
