Well, I firmly believe that in order for treatment to be effective, it needs to be accessable and something that you're comfortable with! If one-on-one therapy and/or medication are not desirable for now, then here are a couple of ideas.
Self-help books are great and as close as your library, or local bookstore/amazon site. Read all that you can regarding your disorder and get educated. Then moving on towards the workbook style programs will really help you in your progress.
There is also on-line therapy available. It is free, go at your own pace, and the sites are easy to navigate (although being a programmer, that's probably not an issue for you like it is for me!) We have links to these in our Anxiety Resource Guide. (main page 3rd post down) Look for Moodgym or Ecouch, they are both good. There are also other links to things like breathing/relaxation exercises, which are very effective and great for anyone to try:)
There are some places to start...I hope that some of these ideas will bring you some relief. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing soon.
