Hi jazzy,

Many people here are not on meds. You might check some books out of the library on anxiety and panic. There are many natural methods to deal with it. Also, faith and spirituality can only be a good thing...

if i didnt have my new faith to help me through my anxiety, im not sure exactly where i would be, but i know that i would not be better. reading books on fear and inspirational stories about people who have overcome their own anxiety has help bring so much understanding into my life! i dont take medication anymore and sometimes i do feel my anxiety come, however ive learned through CBT that its okay and i can for the most part overcome most bad situations for me. its the hardest for me when i am alone...but before i start talking about myself...keep us posted on you..and hang in there!!!

Hi!  They can all help, but I think the key is CBT to change the thought patterns that contribute to A/P. Kate pretty much hit the nail on the head in my opinion.

Good Luck!

I started to get very ivolved with my higher power (whom I call God) in the last few years and love it. I wish I could have more faith in him than I have. I know how much he has carried me through over the years because I should have been dead a thousand times. I was very venturous and threw caution to the wind way to many times.

Now having said that, this is what I have come to believe in the area you are talking about. God and Faith can move mountains but you better bring a shovel. If you want that mountain moved he has given you the strength,desire, and the mucles to move it. In other words God gives us the intelligence to make decisions but I believe he expects us to work toward achieving our goals. It does not mean your faith is not working if the Panic and Anxiety does not go away. Thats why you were blessed with the sense to go to the doctor and get help.
