I posted earlier about my negative reaction to Paxil. I had a panic attack this morning; I had one in high school while performing my french horn but never for no apparent reason. I've decided not to take Paxil anymore. I went back to the doctor today after a frustrating struggle to get an appointment (still not used to the military life) and was just told that I was over reacting and should try meditation. I've had a lot of experience with music therapy which involves meditation but it has never been much help to me. I feel like the doctors I've seen just don't care, got me in and out without really understanding anything about me. I've been seeking help for awhile, which is difficult for me because of my severe anxiety... and it seems that I just can't get it. I have a lot of insight & understand a lot of things about why I'm depressed, etc... That I have to rely on myself most of all. I'm just at a point where its out of control & I can't function, I really need help. I can't see any different docs bc of the way our insurance is set up, so I was wondering if anyone here could offer some options that have worked for them- such as natural supplements, activities, books, anything I can do on my own. Thanks for reading.
