First time on here, so I apologies for my ramblings... but here we go! I suffer from anxiety/depression and have done for as long as I can remember, occasionally taking meds to help me through the rough times, but usually just try and get through it all on myself. I've recently hit rock bottom again, contemplated suicide, but never really believed i would. I can see light at the end of the tunnel, I've started to organise my debts that I keep on ignoring, put some ghosts away and started a diary again.. I just wish I could understand WHY I have the panic attacks, depression I can understand I guess, and control... hopefully! What I'm getting at is how/are there tricks to stop the anxiety and social phobias?
