If nothing you'll be able to understand a bit more about anxiety than you probably do now. And stay away from meds. American doctors will push heroin onto you if it's in the name of psychological treatment.
    I definitely have a few anxiety disorders. Used to go to therapy years ago but stopped. Don't really want to go back.

    Both, definitely. The former more so.

    Well it's not up to me to tell you how to live your life but therapy is important. It should be able to fix that stuff.

    Alternatively there are medications but really doctors are essentially giving people meth for anxiety. So there are some serious withdrawal symptoms that follow.

    I probably tried a dozen different medications when I was younger. None of them really worked. That's why I stopped.

    I've considered going back to therapy although part of me fails to see the point in it. I was in therapy for years and I'm still a mess.

    Well the medications aren't intended on fixing the problem, and that's the problem. It's a temporary effect and when it goes away you have to readjust back to life with anxiety.

    Therapy takes time, try to see it in a more optimistic light and you can get more out of it. It also wouldn't hurt to try other doctors, methods or facilities. Never disregard that second opinions are an option. A relative of mine pretty much had his life saved because he switched hospitals.

    I'll likely never go back to 1 on 1 therapy, but support group/therapy I've been considering. Idk what it'll take for me to actually go, though, but I see the appeal/benefits.

    I've never really been to therapy. I was forced to talk to a therapist while I was in highschool. There was a really ridiculous misunderstanding with a teacher, so the school made me see this asshole every Thursday. It wasn't actually therapy, because I didn't have a real reason to be there, and I was a dick to the guy the whole time.

    I guess I can see how therapy can be helpful for some people. I have a hard time imagining myself doing it, though. I'm pretty self contained, I guess.

    Does it trigger you, as you think that? If not, that just means that you're a healthy individual.

    Therapy did wonders for me. Opened my eyes to larger perspectives.

    It feels pointless telling your whole background to one that you may sooner or later figure out isn't the one for you, and it's exhausting/frustrating doing that over and over, again.

    It's the payment at the door. And really, you don't have to get that in depth on the first few runs. Really, you should be able to tell within three visits whether or not that's going to work. Also, find out if you prefer men or women as therapists. I open up to women far, far more easily and in greater detail than I would another man.

    I like quick phone consultations. I don't need my life reworked, just bits of advice really could help.
