So ive only been dealing with anxiety for a couple months it went away for a while but then it came back and its not something im a fan of. I dont know if its due to stress or what but id like to seek therapy about it but the problem is I dont have insurance. Does anyone have any suggestions where I could get treatment somehow in a cost affective way?

Hello and welcome,

You could try the free online CBT program.  I will post the link for you.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.

This is a great program and many members have used it.
 
Good luck

Thanks for posting this kitt. I will also like to try it out.

I have suffered anxiety for little over 2 months now. First, when i had panick attack, i did not realize what was going on. Much later doctors were able to convince me i was suffering anxiety which probably got triggered due to GERD related Chest pain.

I saw a Therapist 3 times but gave up after she indicated i was not being honest in my answers. Unfortunately, i do not have any 'thoughts' or 'stress' or 'fear'. I just have physical symptoms of anxiety. I have seen many PCPs and therapist but no one has been able to give me a good explanation of what is going on.

Taking matters on my own hand, i have grabbed some wholefood pills from Sprouts. I suffer once every week with some symtpom but i realize that the intensity if less than last time... so i am hoping, it is gradually going away, on its own... what ever i had lost that 30 minute panic attack is gradually building back thru natural resources and 30 minute treadmill everyday. Keeping good eating habbits and sleeping at least 8 hours days. All that seems to be working.

If i still see need for further help, i would go to Accupuncturist ($70/session) but of course i will check out this CBT site.

I do take Ativan when needed (so far taken 3 times and not sure if it really helped).

Good luck to you and stay positive.

You might also try finding a CBT book at the local library

Just wanted to report back that my anxiety is pretty much cured now. I may not be totally out of woods but i did not take any meds. If anything, i think the excercise helped me a lot.

I am disappointed that doctors were so quick on prescribing me PAXIL... i never refilled that prescription.

good luck all!
