Okay I am very new here.
I have, up until now, managed to mostly control my anxiety through breathing, etc. learned in couseling a few years ago....although I have had my days.
Today, and this entire past few days/weeks, my anxiety has gotten the better of me to the point I cannot handle/divert it with breathing, walking away, etc.
So after a full blown attack at work I broke down and called our mental health hot line.
They gave me a few numbers to call for therapist/pschiatrists offices(apparently all the numbers she gave me had both in office) after I mentioned I had been in couseling a few times prior.
I am waiting now to hear back from them on when an appointment is available...apparently unless you are suicidal(which is unheard of on my end) you are low on the totem pole.
So while I am waiting...I'm curious as to what I am in for?
I've avoided this for so long because I did not want to be on medications. I do not even like taking motrin or tylenol...I'm known to suffer through migraines as a result of not wanting to take anything.
At this point though I am at my wits end and my rope is frayed to the point I see no other options.
So for those of you who have been here....and I feel like a child starting out....I appreciate any advice, information, heads up, or just encouraging words.
