I agree with Karen. Try looking at things from a different stand point....Is there something you can change in your life now that will relieve the feelings your having? If there isnt anything you can change physicially or even really pinpoint what the cause for these feelings is then counseling may be a good choice for you. Talking out your feelings, thoughts, things that we normally dont share or we think we just deal with small issues, which could eventually become big issues if not discussed.
If you have no idea what the real issue is as to why your feeling this way then it is appropiate for counseling and medication to help you feel more calm and less anxious. Sometimes people can just develop an anxiety/panic disorder and also depression from a small trigger that they may not even recognize. These people are a bit more difficult to treat with just counseling as finding the root cause is hard for them.
