Sometimes I feel like this page helps a great deal and other times, it almost makes me more anxious. Reading what other people are going through can at times be cathartic and help me to not feel so alone; but then other times it can also spark some anxiousness that wasn't there before. There are times when I have to close the tab this site is on so that I don't make myself feel worse. Is it just me that that happens to?
I am really trying to tackle my issues without using a daily med. My doc put me on buspar but I recently came off of it because it was actually making me feel worse. I feel more anxious on it than I do off of it.
I started therapy and am hoping that it helps. My therapist wants to start CBT to help me get past the anxiety that I feel.
What are some things that you all are doing (other than taking meds) that helps with your day to day anxiety?
